  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 115g sugar

  • 1 eggs

  • 55g chocolate grated

  • 115g organic unsalted butter

  • 85g brown sugar

  • 140g organic plain flour

  • 170g chocolate chips

  • 140g ground oatmeal (use a coffee grinder)

  • 85g nuts chopped (optional)


  1. Cream butter and sugars with a hand mixer.
  2. Add egg and vanilla while mixing and stir in flour, oatmeal and other dry ingredients.
  3. Stir in grated chocolate and nuts (if using) and then the choc chips.
  4. Roll into about 30 1-inch (2-3cm) balls and place on lined baking tray.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes at 190C/Gas Mark 5.

Handy Hint

Grate the chocolate in a food processor, or you'll end up with it all over your hands.
Space them out well (bake in batches if you have to) as they spread out a lot!

    This recipe has been adapted from an old, old internet hoax and baked by me since about 1990. Yikes! Doesn't stop it being a fab choc cookie! Kids can help in mixing it all together from * in the recipe, and putting the balls of mix on the baking sheets. Can be nut and dairy-free if desired, but not, sadly, gluten-free. You can also substitute more oatmeal for the nuts and/or swap the choc chips for raisins.
