Total time
Serves: 36-48
  • 4 cups oats, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 cups butter
  • ½ to 1 cup sugar (less for denser cookie, more for flatter chewy cookie)
  • ¾ to 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Combine 2 cups of the oats with the baking powder, salt, cocoa and mint and process in the food processor until finely ground; set aside. Beat the butter with the sugars until combined, and then add the eggs and mix on medium until smooth. Add the ground oats and whole wheat flour, a little at a time, until it is all combined, and then add the remaining oats and chocolate chips. Mix until just barely combined. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  2. Scoop heaping teaspoons onto baking sheets lined with a silicone baking mat and bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Let cool before removing from the baking sheet. Store in an airtight container.
