Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday, April 15, 2011

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
6 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup flax seed meal and water (let set for a while)
2 1/2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. brown sugar, not packed
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. cocoa

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips (flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt). Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (applesauce, pumpkin, flax seed meal and water, and vanilla extract). Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir until completely blended. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Spray a large baking pan with nonstick spray, and spoon batter into 8 evenly spaced circles. Place pan in the oven for about 10 minutes (until cookies appear done and feel firm). Remove pan from the oven and allow cookies to cool slightly. For best results, enjoy while the cookies are still warm and the chips are still melty! MAKES 8 SERVINGS

What is nice about this cookies is that they only make one pan and there is not alot of sugar in them and you have fruit in the cookies instead of fat.

You can use half white whole wheat flour and 100% whole wheat flour if you want it more softer cookie.

You can use different sugars if you want. I have used Sucanat, Turbinado, stevia blend and sugar. I just use the brown sugar because you don't use a lot and I'm not sure what to use.

I have used banana in place of pumpkin (I couldn't find can pumpkin)

    How much flax and how much water? Is it 1/4 cup flax and 1/4 cup water? Or 1/4 cup total (in which case how much of each to make up the 1/4 cup)?
