Oatmeal Brownie Drops

These cookies are very chocolately, so they definitely fulfill the chocolate urge when it arises. The oats give them fiber, so they're not the most horrible cookie you could eat. Now, how to control oneself in front of them . . . that's a challenge. From the Hershey's Homemade cookbook.

3/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and blend thoroughly. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Add dry to wet and blend thoroughly. Stir in oatmeal and chips. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-8 minutes or until cookies begin to set. Do not overbake. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
