Favorite Things: Teaism’s Chocolate Salty Oat Cookie

The DC teahouses’ popular confection gets a dose of Belgian chocolate.

Teaism’s salty oat cookies, those hefty golden-brown rounds packed with oats and plump raisins and sprinkled with sea salt, have garnered something of a cult following around Washington. Purists may balk at their newish chocolate sibling, but I think it's terrific. They’ve got the same perfect balance of crispy to chewy and salty to sweet as the original, but a dark, chocolatey batter binds the oats and each chubby cookie is studded with lots of chunks of Belgian chocolate. Can’t decide between the new and old versions? A combination six-pack ($11.95) offers three originals and three chocolates.

Chocolate salty oat cookies, $2 each at Teaism in Dupont Circle (2009 R St., NW; 202-667-3827), Lafayette Park (800 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-835-2233), and Penn Quarter (400 Eighth St., NW; 202-638-6010);
