Your day is about to get a little more joyous with my new recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies!
The other night Walker was out with his buddy, so Vienna and I had a girl date. About 20 minutes before bed she decided she wanted to make cookies, so she twisted my arm and we decided to make them together! I explained to her that because there is so much chocolate in these, she can only eat half a cookie otherwise she will be UP ALL NIGHT — especially since she’s like her mama, chocolate is like a shot of espresso straight to the veins for me.
We had so much fun baking together! She definitely had her fill with chocolate, as did I. Not surprisingly, it took me a little longer to fall asleep. So if you're like me, maybe don't eat these right before bed!
Honestly, I had no clue if these would work out since it was a total shot in the dark. I’ve baked enough though so I usually know the ratios of wet to dry and magically they turned out soft, chewy and oh so dang amazing!!! I wasn’t even planning on putting these on the blog, but because they were so good I asked Walker to shoot them for me yesterday morning — not that he didn’t already have enough on his plate, but he happily obliged.
These cookies are:
I think this would be a wonderful host or hostess gift if you've got any holiday parties to attend this year. Hint, hint - I would definitely appreciate them being made for me!
Here's the recipe that Vienna and I created for you - Double Chocolate Cookies.
Makes 16-18 cookies.
You may wish to adjust the sweetness but I found they needed coconut sugar and maple syrup or the bitterness of the raw cacao comes out. If you reduce the maple syrup you'll need to add more water because coconut flour is very dry.
*If you want to make this nut-free try 1 cup of oat flour.
Update May 17: I increased the raw cacao powder from 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup I like them more chocolatey!
If you want to make these egg-free, use flax eggs instead. 1 tbsp flax + 2.5 tbsp water = 1 egg, so you'll need to double that since there are 2 eggs.
Just in case you missed the note in the recipe card, be sure to let them cool otherwise they will fall apart very easily when they are hot because of the coconut oil. Once that oil solidifies up they hold together perfectly.
Vienna and I love baking together and if you've got kids I highly encourage you to do this as often as possible because it's a great way to teach children about food and nutrition. I talk a lot about this in my free guide: Little Food Lovers Healthy Snackers.
I can't wait to hear what you guys think of these yummy cookies! I had one this morning with my Rise & Shine Latte.
Just a little fyi -- these cookies are much darker than these photos appear. I think it was just the lighting in the office when Walker shot them for me. So if yours come out looking like dark chocolate cookies, that's how they should look!
