Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Published by Bonnie on

These dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are my family’s favorite cookies. Warm, chocolately, easy to make, and no huge sugar crash because of the more natural sweetener.

We use sucanat sweetener in all of our chocolate recipes. Though, it has been hard lately to find it easily in the stores.  We used to use agave syrup until we learned about the high fructose content and realized that sucanat was a little healthier choice.  The chocolate really allows you to change up the sweetener without changing the flavor.

If you can’t find sucanat, you can also just substitute the same amount of light brown sugar. 

When scooping these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies onto your pan, be sure to use a rounded scoop. We like to use an ice cream scoop so that they don’t get too thin as they cook.
