  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the oatmeal in a blender and pulse the blender on high for 2 seconds, 5 or 6 times; transfer to a bowl.
  3. Break the chocolate along the scores and pulse until it reaches a powdered form. Make sure to stir with a spoon between pulses so the heat from the blender doesn't melt the chocolate. Add the chocolate to the oatmeal; set aside.
  4. Beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat one egg into the mixture until completely incorporated. Add the second egg along with the vanilla extract and continue beating.
  5. Stir the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; add to the butter mixture and stir until combined. Mix the oatmeal and chocolate into the mixture. Drop teaspoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden-brown on the edges and set in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool briefly on the baking sheets before being moved to cooking racks to cool completely.

I had the Mexican chocolate and the oats in my cupboard and a new Ninja Blender to try out, so I decided to give these a try. We really enjoyed them. They have a very delicate, but perfect balan...

These cookies bake up beautifully and taste great! I used 2tsp of cinnamon which was the perfect compliment to the bar of Mexican chocolate. And I agree with others, 12 minutes to bake is perf...

I made half the recipe to try. Good flavor and baked beautifully, looking professional.

These cookies were yummy and baked up very nicely, but had much more cinnamon flavor than I expected, especially considering that I only used 1 tsp. instead of the 2 called for. Next time I try ...

I placed a heart shaped red hot in the center of each after they came out of the oven. Yummy. I also made sure to roll each into a ball so they baked up nicely.
