Total Time:20 mins
Yield:18 cookies 1x
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
2 eggs, room temperature
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and at room temperature
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp molasses
1/4 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°.
Melt coconut oil then set aside.
In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; set aside.
Next, whisk eggs, syrup and molasses together; then, add in the melted coconut oil.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, then stir in the chocolate by hand.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop dough out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing them 3″ apart.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. You want the edges to be set but the middle to be slightly undone.
Allow cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before placing them onto a cooling rack.
Optional: sprinkle with flaky sea salt before serving.
*Make sure the eggs are close to room temperature and the melted coconut oil is no longer warm before using. If the coconut oil is hot/warm and the eggs are cold, the coconut oil with solidify when combined.
**Recipe may yield more or less cookies depending on the size of the cookies
