Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


My neighbor Earl recently broke his collarbone after he was hit by a car while riding his bike. Did I mention he is in his 70's?? Poor guy!! My solution for a broken bone, heart or cellular phone (worst 3 things to break)... cookies!

I've been into the 1 egg/1 egg yolk cookie dough as of late. I'm not sure, but I think it makes them extra chewy in the center while still maintaining a crispy outer crust. And I LOVE the taste of milk chocolate and dark chocolate together. Sweet, bitter, rich. The espresso powder helps bring out the chocolate, and the oatmeal makes these healthy. (Don't say a word.)

I made these and they turned out really flat! Any suggestion of what I did wrong?

Bummer! Did you forget baking soda, or baking powder? Sometimes my cookies will get flat if I melt my butter too, which is why I always suggest room temp instead. Sorry about that, hope they still tasted good : )
