Brownie Oatmeal Cookies


I make brownies from a mix. I used to be ashamed to admit that, but now I embrace it. In fact I’ll say it again: I make brownies from a mix.

How did you do it, Mr. Hines? I don’t even care, keep the secrets for yourself. Whatever you did to the modern day brownie mix is magical. I hope you are sunning yourself on a chair made of gold in some exotic tropical location, enjoying the earnings of your genius contribution to society.

So, I can’t very well put brownies on my blog (as clearly all the work is not my own), but I can put brownie oatmeal cookies on here. These remind me of cookies my mom made when I was a kid, but I used a brownie mix because I had one at home. And they took 3.4 seconds to make. And I wanted some chocolate cookie dough as a snack.


  • 1 package brownie mix(DUNCAN HINES!!)
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350. Mix all ingredients, then refrigerate for 5-10 minutes. Bake for 10-11 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet, and top with ice cream immediately.  HURRY.
