Can It Really Be? Brownie Oatmeal Cookies

Can you really have the goodness of a brownie and oatmeal in one cookie?

Of course you can.

And the proof is right here. This is the most amazing cookie!

This recipe is linked to:

The Stuff of Success


This cookie was brought to my attention by a another dear fellow blogger - friend - inspiration - and all around great person.

Michael Ann operates an amazing blog called "The Big Green Bowl". You will have to go visit her because she has some amazing recipes over there.

She is also an inspirational writer. I love to read her thoughts, and she even places music to match her inspirational message. What a talented lady.....

You will have to visit "Thinking in My Head" to grasp the full beauty of Michael Ann.


I couldn't resist tweaking this cookie.....

Chocolate + oatmeal + coffee + nuts = Amazing satisfaction

I had a bag of cappuccino mix on hand: hazel nuts, chocolate covered coffee beans, malted milk balls, white chocolate chips, and caramel chips.

What would be better to place in these cookies? NOTHING!!

I chopped it all up fine in my mini chopper.

This was perfect! Every once in a while you would get a bite of cookie with a crunchy piece of coffee bean....perfect!

Brownie Oatmeal Cookies

1 (8 oz.) block cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 (12 oz.) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 c. old fashioned oats (that's what I used, can use quick cooking oats)
1 c. chopped fine cappuccino mix (or walnuts)

This dough needs to spend an hour in the fridge, so don't preheat the oven until you are ready to bake them.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add sugars and beat until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well to combine.
In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Add to creamed mixture.
Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Stir in oatmeal and cappuccino mix (or walnuts). Cover and chill for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, place on cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until cookies are almost set. Don't over-bake!
Cool on cookie sheet for a couple minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
