Berry oatmeal cookies for two

We’re not exactly bakers. But everyone once in a while, we get a hankering for homemade cookies. Unfortunately, most recipes result in way more batches that we could (or should) eat. We desperately wanted a recipe for one big cookie that can be shared between two or at least a single batch of 6 small cookies.

After a little research and testing, we ended up with these berry oatmeal cookies drizzled with chocolate. It’s the perfect size to have your small “dessert treat” throughout the week. We tend to prefer oatmeal cookies since it’s what we always have handy in our pantry. And it’s not so bad for you. 

Berry Oatmeal Cookies (Small Batch)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup (scant) packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of a whisked egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 Tbsp berries (We mixed diced strawberries and raspberries)
  • 1/3 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • ¼ Cup of milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl. Heat in microwave on high until almost completely melted. Add brown sugar, 1 Tbsp egg, flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt to melted butter. Stir until well blended (it will seem dry at first but it will start to come together). Add berries.

2. Shape dough into your preferred size on a Silpat or parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 13 - 15 minutes until edges are golden but the center is still soft.

3. Melt chocolate in microwave with the milt. Once the cookies have cooled down, drizzle the chocolate on top.
