Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dark chocolate chip cookies

Are you a dark chocolate fan like me?  I mean, do you crave chocolate?  I adore anything chocolate.  Bring on the chocolate layer cake, chocolate ice cream and chocolate mousse.  Can you see a pattern here?  I was sick of the Thanksgiving fare of pies and more pies so I decided to bake one of my favorite cookie recipes.

This is not a recipe for the vanilla loving person, this is for the chocoholic.  This cookie is sinful, dark and gooey.  My mouth is watering just saying those words, so I’m going to get myself a glass of milk and chow down.

Oh, and this cookie is family, kid and friend approved.  I made these for Zoe’s class party one year, and they were the hit of the party.  I get requests all the time to make these along with my chocolate chip cookies.  You can’t go wrong with either of these cookies.

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Every Day Food Magazine
Makes about 22 cookies

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped – I used Ghirardelli semisweet 60% cacao bars
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 package semisweet chocolate chips or chunks – I used Ghirardelli bittersweet 60% cacao chips

Preheat your oven/ovens to 350 degrees.  Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Chop up and measure out your dark chocolate.  I love using these Ghirardelli bars because they are each 4oz (8oz total) so I do not have to measure anything.

Combining dry and wet ingredients for cookies

Fold in your chocolate chips.  I used a spatula to fold in the chips here at the batter was thick.

Finished cookie dough

press plastic wrap directly onto surface of dough, and refrigerate until firm, 30 to 45 minutes.

Drop mounds of dough onto your prepared baking sheets.  I used my ice-cream scooper here to measure out the cookie balls.  I ended up with about 8 for 2 baking sheets and 6 for the other sheet.  Make sure you set the cookies apart to give each cookie room to grow when baking.

Pop the cookies in the oven and bake just until edges are firm (but not darkening), 11 to 13 minutes.

Note:  I always bake one sheet at a time in the oven.

Cool cookies on baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are extremely rich, so don’t forget your milk!

Chickpea flour pancakes (socca). Socca is basically a savory gluten-free, vegan pancake made from chickpea flour. 

Comment ‘chickpea’ and I’ll DM you the recipe link! 

These are also one of the simplest pancakes to make, as they require 4 pantry ingredients, chickpea flour, water, avocado oil and salt. These pancakes are also great for those on a candida cleanse.

I make these pancakes all the time and top with just about anything you would top a tortilla with. I love them topped with a smashed avocado, hemp seeds and furikake. I also use them as a wrap for BLT’s, scrambled eggs, and even for taco Tuesday.

Easy hack to pack salad 🥬 and dressing for work, or for school lunches.  Recycle those old spice jars, as they’re the perfect size for a serving of dressing and don’t leak. 🙌🏻

Comment ‘green’ if you want the DF green goddess dressing recipe.
Dairy free green goddess dressing. This is my dairy free, vegan take on a green goddess dressing. I wanted to create a tasty dairy free version, while focusing on keeping the ingredients ultra clean, so I used a coconut based yogurt @cocojune_organic that doesn’t contain gums, or other ingredients you can’t pronounce.
Comment “green” and I’ll DM you the recipe link. 

The result, we love this dressing and have been making it on repeat. I love how creamy and vibrant this dressing is and how it coats each piece of lettuce. I also love how interchangeable the herbs are. You can truly use what you have on hand.  

This dressing isn’t just for salads, you can use as a dip for veggies, (Eli love to dip carrot 🥕 sticks in this dressing) sweet potato fries, or drizzle over grilled or roasted chicken. The possibilities are endless. 💕

How to make nettle tea using a French press. Recipe 👇 

I got this genius idea from my naturopath. This is herbal medicine for your body. I love brewing tea this way because I get big batch of tea in under 10 minutes. This tea is naturally caffeine-free, so you can add it to your daily water intake. Nettle is like drinking a potent green juice, and the zing of peppermint gives a kick of flavor. I love adding a pod of @kovikai organic fresh pressed turmeric for some anti-inflammatory benefits. 

I drink this tea all morning and sometimes add a teaspoon of local raw honey to help with seasonal allergies. Drink it hot, then warm or pour over ice for a refreshing iced tea!

Healing benefits of Nettle:
Nettle has a mild spinach-like taste and is a highly nutritious infusion that supports your body physically. Nettle is high in vitamin K. A good source of vitamin A, calcium and magnesium. Nettle also offers anti-inflammatory benefits, high in antioxidants, supports bone health, has skin-healing properties and helps with seasonal allergies. Nettle is great when you feel worn out and drained. 

Healing benefits of Peppermint: 
Peppermint helps with digestion, boosts focus, and can help relieve tension headaches and migraines and may help with seasonal allergies. 

Recipe: (you can use more or less of any of the below) 
5-6 cups hot filtered water
3 tablespoons Nettle leaf tea 
2 tablespoons peppermint 
Optional 1 pod @kovikai turmeric

Add teas to carafe. Pour hot water into the carafe, slowly lower the plunger to the bottom. Let tea brew for 5-7 minutes, or more depending on how strong you like your tea. Pour tea into a heat proof container and enjoy! 

You can find nettle loose leaf tea on Amazon if your local grocery store doesn’t have loose tea. Nettle can also be called stinging nettle.

How to wash and store romaine lettuce. You can do this with any fresh organic lettuce. 🥬 

Fresh organic lettuce tastes so much better than the pre-washed boxed, or bagged versions.

Yes, it takes time, but it’s worth it! Do this when you get back from the grocery store. It will keep lettuce fresh for a week or more. 

Also, don’t wash lettuce in the sink. I took a serve safe class in natural chef school and our sinks are not fit to wash greens, as they are full of bacteria. Use a clean bowl instead. Also, feel free to wrap lettuce in a flour sack towel as well. Happy salad!🩷
