I’m going to guess that you have everything to make these cookies in your pantry right now. Recipes that satisfy your chocolate cravings quickly and cheaply cannot be underrated.
This recipe was shared by Loy in the comment section of last week’s Ingredient Spotlight: Cocoa. My kids were scavenging in the kitchen for a snack when I saw the recipe. It didn’t take long until we were pulling warm, chocolatey cookies from the oven. Loy’s recipe calls for nuts, but I tossed in some Heath chips instead.
Here’s what you’ll need:
No ingredient picture this time, but there’s nothing strange or unusual listed:
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup + 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 6 Tbs. cocoa
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts or Heath chips or dried fruit
Beat the eggs with an electric mixer. Beat in oil, vanilla and sugar. Stir flour, soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa together until well combined. Add to the mixer and beat until blended. Stir in the nuts, Heath chips or dried fruit if you’re using it.
Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets or baking stone. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Thanks for the great recipe, Loy!
