How many of you have ever tried Endangered Species Chocolate? If you’ve never tried chocolate by this company…you’re really missing out! These chocolates are Fairtrade, Non-GMO/Gluten-free and creating positive change in our environment.
Recently I received a few bars of chocolate from Endangered Species and decided to make one of their recipes. This recipe is easy-to-prepare and oh my gosh…so very good! My family of three devoured the whole entire pan in less than 24 hours!
Makes 12 2” squares or 24 bars.
Oatmeal and Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe
½ cup butter or trans-fat free spread
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup uncooked oatmeal
½ cup almonds, coarsly choped
3 oz. (1 bar) Endangered Species Chocolate Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Cranberries (wolf), coarsely chopped into ¼ inch chunks.
Note: I didn’t have any almonds on hand so I just completely omitted them and the recipe still turned out perfectly!
PREHEAT oven to 350°F.
CREAM together butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. Add flour, salt and oats. Stir in almonds and chocolate. The mixture will be stiffer than a cookie dough.
SPRAY an 8” square baking dish with the nonstick cooking spray. Put mixture into the baking dish and flatten with your hands to make an even layer. **Handy tip – spray your palms with non-stick spray and this step is made VERY easy**
BAKE for 35-40 minutes, until top is slightly browned. Let cool and then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
