This recipe has been in the works for a long time. Like more than a year. I kept running into problems with it, but I'm happy to say that it's now perfected and I'm so excited to share it with you. It is one of our FAVORITE kinds of cookies. They are absolutely divine straight out of the oven. Melt in your mouth deliciousness. They are totally amazing even without chocolate chips (and completely naturally sweetened). The chocolate chips add a little bit more ooey gooeyness to the mix. So you really should try them that way too. Yum.
These cookies are strutting 100% whole grain flour, naturally sweetened, and butter (no fake fats). So who says cookies can't be healthy and still taste amazing? Well hopefully after trying these, it won't be you.
And in case you're still not convinced. I'll tell you that they passed my pickiest kid's taste buds. The kid who can tell with one bite if something is sweetened with honey and not sugar (not kidding...). Well, guess what? I'm happy to report that I fooled him with this one! Ha! Mission accomplished.
Chocolate Honey Cookies
*Makes 2-3 dozen cookies
2-1/4 Cups Wonder Flour
2/3 Cup Natural, unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 Cup raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 Cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, or homemade chocolate chips (Optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, whisk together the Wonder Flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, honey, and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Add chocolate chips, if desired. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.
Bake for 9-11 minutes until the edges are set but centers are still soft. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
