CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE CHIP, OAT COOKIES

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup quick oats, raw
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 375 degree.

Melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a small saucepan and set aside.

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy; add the melted chocolate, egg, and vanilla extract. 

Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl; add to the chocolate mixture blending together well.  Stir in the remaining cup of chocolate chips. 

Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonsful onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees 8 to 10 minutes or just until set.  Do not overbake these cookies; the centers will still look soft when cookies are done baking.  Cool for a minute on the cookie sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  Store in a tightly covered container.

Yield: 3 dozen cookies of  97 calories each.
