Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Yet another recipe for our Girls on the Run of Las Vegas post-lesson munchies.  This time, after a busy day, I was trying to use what I had in the house for a quick recipe that wouldn't keep me up cooking half the night. Of course, I still wanted it to be healthy...hence the oats, chia seeds, almond milk, and all-natural sugar substitute.

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Just Like Sugar Brown
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 1/2 squares of unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Boil first five ingredients over medium heat, stirring to mix sugar and Just Like Sugar in with the melting chocolate.  
  • Boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Mix in oats and chia seeds, combining thoroughly.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and cool.
