Absolutely sinful

Sleep deprived as I am right now, I still can’t say no to chocolate cookies!! These cookies were easy to make despite only having 2 hours sleep the night before!
Sickly Sinful Chocolate Cookies
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ¼ cups self-raising flour
¼ cup rolled oats
Roughly ½ cup cocoa powder (I guess the lack of sleep is getting to me as I don’t remember exactly how much cocoa powder I used!)
Roughly 1 cup chocolate chips/ chocolate chunks (White, milk or dark. I used a mixture of milk and dark chunks)

Cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla to the creamed mixture and beat well.

Add the flour to the beaten mixture and fold in lightly. Add the oats and the chocolate chips or chunks

Line your baking tray with a baking sheet and drop small spoonfuls of the mixture on baking sheet.

Bake the cookies at 180C for 12-15 minutes. Remove when slightly soft, the cookies will harden when cool.


  1. Ahh... a fellow chocoholic! I can't say no to chocolate either, be it chocolate chip cookies or anything made of/slathered with the sinful stuff.

    Death by Chocolate? The only way to go... ;)

  2. i can not imagine while busy with ur cutes baby still have time for baked godies :)

    no one can say no for a piece of chocolate :D

  3. Love your chocolate chip cookies! Wow, only two hours of sleep ah? It's amazing you can still function in the kitchen the next day. I would be like a zombie. :P

  4. Yummy cookies, I have to give you two thumbs up, even you are so busy with the baby :)

  5. wow, thos cookies still look so adorable delicious . .. wow!

  6. I admire you for having the strength to bake these lovely cookies. The only way my little one slept during the day time when she was a baby was on my chest. ;) Hope your little one got his day and night right.

  7. These look sinful, indeed! And oh, so delicious!

  8. The cookies look good but I wanna see more pictures of that last project you "cooked" up. ;)

  9. They sure look sinful but you deserve every single one of them for the great job you did bringing such a beautiful bub into the world! Spare me one, though HA!HA!

  10. Kenny: I can eat a whole bar of chocolate with nuts just by myself!

    Lia: Yep – I can’t say no to chocolate either.

    LittleCornerofMine: I was like a zombie…a zombie on chocolate!

    Everything4Sweets: Anything for chocolate ;-)

    BigBoysOven: Chocolate makes anything taste good!

    CookingNinja: You’ll have to share some tips with how your little one started sleeping on her own! Mine is a bit like that too – loves to sleep on me but has problems sleeping on her own! And her days and nights are still mixed up!

    Patricia: very sinful indeed.

    WanderingC: Hehe – the cookies taste nicer!

    Ohfortheloveoffood: Hehe – sorry – I gobbled up all the cookies already!!

  11. hope you get more zzzs but at least you have alot of sweets (baby + cookies)! sugar keeps u awake right? :D

  12. Still have time to bake. When my kids were babies, every spare moment I tried catching up on my sleep.

  13. Look at the cute little mini wokspoon in the previous post!

    You're forgiven, eat as much chocolate as you like. Little mini wokspoon has given permission also :)

    But who can say "NO" to chocolates :)
