Soft Batch Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Christmastime is a time of baking cookies, making fudge, and sitting around a cozy fire with loved ones.
(Fun fact – we spend Christmas with my husband’s family in Florida, and his dad puts a fireplace video on the tv screen while we open presents – it’s hilarious and cozy all at the same time.)

While Christmas is the perfect excuse to eat alllll of the sweets and bad-for-you delicious treats, I like to do this in moderation.

I enjoy making healthier cookies, like my no-bake ones, and these soft batch double chocolate chip cookies.

They taste delicious and no one would guess that they are made using healthier ingredients!

These double chocolate chip cookies taste like a brownie/cake hybrid. They are not your traditional cookie – they are soft, cake-like, and practically melt in your mouth.

I love the strong chocolatey taste that the cacao gives cookies!

Grab a glass of milk or some ice cream and enjoy these healthier cookies this year!

Followed the recipe to a T and the batter was so runny had to bake in muffin tins. Not sure why?!

This happened to me too. I increased the flour and put into muffin tin. I measured the oil while liquid.

I'm sorry Kristina! Did you measure the coconut oil when solid or melted?

I tried those several times now and it is going to be a classical for me!

Good idea of mixing carob and chocolate as well using apple sauce to minimized the use of fat.

And they are delicious too!

Thank you fp!
