Oatmeal Hazelnut Cookies

Simple soft cookies made extra decadent with roasted hazelnuts and bittersweet chocolate

Oatmeal cookies make my stomach swoon. There is something extra special when you get a plump cookie stuffed full of oatmeal right out of the oven.  I was thinking of comfort and home when I decided to whip up these cookies. 

Oatmeal with a hint of cinnamon. And since I had some hazelnuts handy I threw those in too. There is some bittersweet chocolate in the mix as well. I had one of those Pounder Plus bars from Trader Joe's. I have several of vary levels of cocoa in my pantry.  It is a very good thing. 

Throw everything together and in the oven they go.  No chill time required.  The roasted hazelnuts add a little something extra special and goes oh so well with the cinnamon and chocolate. 

I made about 22 or so cookies but they went right away.  The conversation with Mr. J went a little like this...

Mr. J: Is it going overboard if I have another cookie?
Me: How many have you had so far?
Mr. J: 3
Me: Probably but go ahead.

I think I got three out of the 22.
