So, with me being out of the kitchen most of this week, my boys have been craving a dessert each and every night. My oldest finally caved in and asked if he could whip up a batch of his own cookies, using our All Natural Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. He decided to try putting cocoa in, for that extra chocolatey touch! No complaints here! I better start saving, because he has culinary school written all over him.
3-1/2 to 4 cups freshly ground soft wheat flour (found in most natural food stores) *you want the dough slightly sticky
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup dry honey granules (Do not use pure honey as a substitute)
1 cup sucanat sugar
2 whole large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels (we use Organic)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In separate large mixing bowl, cream butter, honey granules, and sucanat with a hand mixer, until it makes a grainy paste. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well, until creamy.
Stir dry ingredients into the creamed ingredients, a little at a time, blending well with each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough, 2-inches apart, onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cookies rest on pan for a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack. Store left overs in an airtight container or bag.
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
