Hi my name is Carolyn and I am addicted to dark chocolate. I would much rather have that over milk chocolate any day!!! You know some things are meant to be together like peanut butter & jelly, ketchup & french fries, bread & butter, milk & cookies, mashed potatoes & gravy, macaroni & cheese, bacon & eggs etc....well I believe dark chocolate & fruit are meant to be together. SO I added dark chocolate chips to this recipe. I mean come on chocolate doesn't ask silly questions...chocolate understands right!!!
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup flour
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. baking powder
smidge of nutmeg
smidge of allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup diced mango (about 1 mango)
1 package dark chocolate chips or 2 cups
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix the oats, flour, cornstarch, spices, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl
In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugars with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla; mix until well combined.
Add the wet mixture into the oat mixture and stir until combined. Gently fold in the diced mango & chocolate chips.
Scoop out about 1 1 /2 Tbsp. of mixture, form into a loose ball, and place cookie dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350° F for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the cookies and place them on a cooling rack. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
