Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

These cookies are not to be confused with the stove top chocolate oatmeal cookies (find that recipe by clicking HERE!
These are baked in the oven and YES they are delicious. How can double chocolate not be? Every time I make these cookies I do a double take at the 1 TABLESPOON of baking powder it has in the recipe. That is what the recipe says and the cookies don't turn out weird so I keep putting that amount in there. Here is the recipe....

1 cup butter   1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder   1/2 tsp baking soda
 3 oz.unsweetened chocolate melted and cooled
 1 egg   1 tsp vanilla    1 1/4 cups flour   1 1/2 cups quick cooking rolled oats   
 1 cup chocolate chips    
Pre-heat oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl beat butter on med-high for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder and soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in melted chocolate, egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour, oats and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoons about 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are firm. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
