Gingerbread chocolate chip cookies recipe

Yields 1 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat white flour (you could substitute all-purpose)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Granulated sugar for rolling (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients (flours, baking soda and spices) in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together the remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips in a small bowl until smooth.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix together with a spatula. This will take some effort as it will be a dry dough.
  4. Fold the chocolate chips into the dough. You might want to use your hands to incorporate everything.
  5. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours up to overnight.
  6. Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator and roll into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls with your hands.
  7. Roll the balls in sugar if using and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 9-10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and gently press down on the tops of the cookies (they will have remained in the shape of a ball) to get the "cracked" gingerbread effect.
  10. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
