I invented this recipe one day after getting bored of plain chocolate chip. You can leave out the chocolate chips to have just a marble cookie, or add 1/2 cup of peanut butter for an interesting flavor.

  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, rolled oats, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Then stir in the chocolate chips. Fold the cocoa powder in slightly, to create a marbled effect.

  • Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

Very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly but couldn't achieve the swirled effect- however the flavor is very good! I'll make these again and maybe up the amount of cocoa powder to try to swirl it better! Read More

I was looking for a nice healthy cookie my picky children could have at snack time and could also take to school. I wasn't sure they would like them (because of the rolled oats) but it was a huge success! I still haven't told them about the oats... I made two small changes to the recipe. After mixing all the ingredients I placed the batter in the fridge to make it easier to form into cookie shapes. For the swirl to work well I put a little of the batter aside and mixed in some cocoa. Once I placed the cookie dough on the cookie sheets I made the swirl on each of them with the separate chocolate mixture. Worked like a charm. Read More

Definitely a tasty cookie. It's a chocolate chip/oatmeal crossover. It didn't swirl though. I folded the dough enough so I could see swirls in the unbaked dough but after baking the swirl was nonexistent. If you're looking for a swirl cookie you might want to look for a different recipe. Read More
