Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsps cocoa powder (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 1/4 cup pure cane sugar (I use Wholesome Sweets)
  • 3/4 cup organic brown sugar
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dissolvable espresso powder
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temp. (That's 1 1/2 sticks!)
  • 2 large organic egg, room temp.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 1/2 dark chocolate bar, chopped (I use Ghirardelli)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  • Next, in a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, espresso powder, pinch of cinnamon, and sea salt and set aside.
  • Now, in the bowl of your electric stand-mixer (w/ a paddle attachment), beat together the unsalted butter until creamy and add both sugars, beating on medium speed until creamy and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. NOTE: Scrape down the sides if you need to.
  • Scoop the batter out into 1.5 Tbsps amounts and onto the baking sheet, keeping them roughly 1-inch apart. NOTE: I placed 6-8 cookies on each baking sheet to leave enough space in between each one.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden around the edges. At the HALFWAY MARK, about 5 minutes in, remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully bang it onto a countertop a few times (2 or 3 times) before placing cookies back into the oven. This creates a slight "crinkled look" and flattens cookies a bit if too puffy. NOTE: The cookies will look really soft in the middles when you remove them from the oven, however, they will harden once cooled.
  • Repeat same steps with each round of cookies until entire batter has been used.
  • Enjoy these cookies with your favorite glass of milk, tea, or coffee.
  • Bon Appetit!

Notes

STORAGE: Cookies can be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or refrigerated for slightly longer freshness (about 2 weeks). Can be frozen for 4-5 months and reheated to thaw out. Any unused cookie dough batter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, or frozen for up to 1 month and then thaw overnight in the fridge, if you choose not to use it right away!
