Chocol-Oat Cookies

Oats and chocolate go so well together and this easy biscuit is proof.

7 tbs. butter, softened
scant 1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
3 tbs. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Heat the oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cream together the butter and sugars, then stir in the vanilla and egg. Add the flour, oats and cocoa powder and combine well. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll into 1″ balls and place on the baking sheets with space between. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until flattened. Leave on the baking sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
