Mum’s ‘Double The Chocolate’ Oat Cookies

amour fou 076
Almost every time I visit home, the mothership will make these for me (and I suppose for the rest of the family too).  
The oats give a lovely nutty crunch without having to use up any expensive nuts (have you SEEN the price of nuts these days?! Pine nuts are rare GOLD in our kitchen).
You can chop your chocolate pieces smaller than I did for better distribution but I love biting down into an unexpected chunky nugget of chocolate.
My mum started making these cookies years ago and very quickly realised that there was simply not enough chocolate in them. So she doubled the amount.
Which was the RIGHT THING TO DO.
Makes about 20 (didn’t count them all but I’ve eaten about half and there are ten left #maths)
