Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Biscuits didn’t have the same ring to it.  So I’m sticking with ‘cookies’, even if it is not a very Australian thing to call a ‘biscuit’.   Cookie seems rightly fitting as by all accounts we have a few Cookie Monsters in our house.  These were demolished before I could even finish taking pictures of them, as you can see with the lil’ hand creeping into the frame in the picture above.

That wasn’t a staged shot.  No Siree! That was a real life COOKIE MONSTER stealing Mamma’s prop cookies and leaving a wake of crumbs around the house.

I am not one to get mad at my child and because I knew how utterly delicious they are I wasn’t one to hold a grudge.  I simply snapped that camera shutter more quickly and devoured the rest before hubby could get home, so we had to make a second batch.  I do believe my brain is now officially made up of 50% awesomeness and 50% cacao.

Make these babies and let me know what you think!

  2. Beat egg with a fork and add to the flours along with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, vanilla bean paste and rice malt syrup
  3. Mix until well combined
  4. Adding a little bit of olive oil to the palm of your hand so the cookies don’t ‘stick’ roll into balls and flatten slightly with your other palm.

    Hi could you use coconut oil instead of olive oil? Or another alternative? these sound yum thanks!

  • http://www.thewholedaily.com.au Alice Nicholls

    Absolutely, in fact, I would say they would be even chequer as the coconut oil would ‘set’ thicker when th cookies cool. I want to hear how they go Shenoha. Sounds great. X

  • Shenoha

    Great thanks Alice!
    Should I use the same amount of coconut oil as olive oil? Im assuming it should be melted as well? x

  • Lucy

    Guys, I just made these with coconut oil (same amount as the olive). I may have just burnt my tongue trying them too soon in my excitement ^ ^
    They turned out beautifully. Super moist. I think they’ll get chewier as they cool. I also chopped up sugar-free chocolate and added that because, you know, chocolate.

    Thanks for the recipe Alice! :) x

  • http://www.thewholedaily.com.au Alice Nicholls

    Hahah. Because CHOCOLATE! Yes. I get it. Maybe we could dip them in chocolate too? Chocolate sandwich them? X

  • http://www.thewholedaily.com.au Alice Nicholls

    Yes I would absolutely Shenoha. They will be great!
