Dictatorial Tastebuds?

Anyone else bossed around by their tastebuds? I know I am! Here's today's latest craving order-- chocolaty oatmeal cookies. Who am I to say no to that? ;)

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
*adapted from an allrecipes recipe by Cheryl

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 c. AP flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened
cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine(I used smart balance)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate
chips(I omitted)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients using a wooden spoon. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
