Now onto these bad boysImage

holy yum. i love dessert obv, anything with chocolate count me in !

at the christmas party i had this past weekend i bought these cookies, along with the oatmeal, coconut mounds, and biscottis.. everyone raved about them and kept saying they taste like brownies just in a cookie form.. i was thinking of calling them brookies (any one tree hill fans remember that episode?!) but thought it was alittle much lol so double chocolate it is!

Double Chocolate Cookies

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 cup raw sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (1/2 mashed banana works too)

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups oat flour (grind oatmeal in blender til flour like)*

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips

2-4 tbs nondairy milk**

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix the oil, sugar, applesauce and vanilla with a mixer.  Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda in a separate bowl. Add flour and oil mixture until well combined then stir in chocolate chips. **If its to dry the dough add in the milk 1 tbs at a time now til it just combines and is easy to roll into balls, this dough is not suppose to be runny**.  Roll into balls and bake 8-10 minutes.  They will be soft coming out of the oven but will firm up when cool.  Makes 36-40 cookies.  Enjoy!

*Other flours I have tried has been whole wheat pastry and allpurpose and both have worked.
