PREP TIME: 25 min / COOK TIME: 48 min / TOTAL TIME: 1hr 13 min


½ c whole-wheat flour

½ c all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

½ c packed brown sugar

¾ c confectioners’ sugar

1 lg egg

1 tsp vanilla

1¼ c rolled oats

  2. COMBINE the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
