Chunky Double Chocolate Oat Cookies

Who can say no to a chunky chocolate cookie?! I always forget how much I love cookies, every time I make them I ask myself why I don’t make them more often. I love being able to reach for a freshly baked cookie (or two) to have with a cuppa… and I wonder why they always disappear so quickly!

These are exxtra large — think the size of the ones you get in bags from the bakery section of supermarkets but even more chunky. You could easily make smaller cookies from the dough but there’s something I love about big, chunky cookies.

Rather than using chocolate chips, I like to use roughly chopped dark chocolate. It looks more rustic and it makes eating them more enjoyable too, especially when you bite into an extra-large chunk!

Texture is important when it comes to cookies: I like mine soft and a little bit chewy but everyone’s different. When it comes to these cookies in particular, they harden up a lot more than you’d think once cool. Don’t worry if they still seem a little soft when they’re fresh out of the oven.
