This cookie is fundamentally an oatmeal cookie, but adding the grated dark chocolate and chopped macadamia nuts kicked it up a few notches (which is hard for me to say as an avid oatmeal cookie lover). I have to be honest when I say that the six of us devoured these within a few hours of our study session. Enjoy!
1/4 lb (1 stick) margarine or butter, softened
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/2 t vanilla
3/4 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1 1/2 c Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
8 oz. bar dark chocolate, frozen and grated in blender
1/2 c finely chopped macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350° F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, and cinnamon; mix well. Add oats, grated chocolate, and nuts; mix until all ingredients are completely folded in. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute before removing to wire cooling rack. Let cool completely and enjoy! Us college girls sure did!
Makes about 2 dozen.
