Whole Wheat Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
As we are trying to get away from processed foods and eat more healthier foods, even when it comes to sweets :), I found this recipe for Whole Wheat Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. Yes, it is from Heavenly Homemakers website, her website is full of great stuff! So I thought I would try these for Isaac's birthday last month. They were easy and quick to make and best of all they were sooo yummy and healthy! So I just have to share this recipe.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (Whole Wheat Chocolate Crinkle Cookies)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sucanat (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil (butter would also work)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground flour from hard white wheat.)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Whip together eggs, cocoa, and sucanat. Stir in melted coconut oil, baking powder, and vanilla. Mix in flour until a nice dough has formed. Fold in white chocolate and chocolate chips. Spoon teaspoon sized balls of dough on to a greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350° for 8-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to sit on the cookie sheet for about five minutes before removing. Makes about 24 cookies.
*This recipe is from the Heavenly Homemakers website. She calls her cookies Whole Wheat Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, but we call ours Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Call them what you want, just TRY them!!! :)
