My friend was sharing a recipe with me and it turns out it is from one of my favorites Cookie and Kate (here is the original recipe). I modified it a bit and they came out perfectly! Plus using carob chips made this allergy-friendly for my sweet hubby who is allergic to chocolate! However, this recipe would clearly work beautifully with whatever chocolate chips you have on hand. They are the perfect soft and gooey on the inside, crunchy on the outside cookie. Heaven! Okay, less talking and more baking! Let’s go!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup of all purpose (try to buy organic whenever possible for your flours)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 heaping tsp of course sea salt
1.5 cups of carob chips
3/4 cup organic white sugar
1/2 cup of coconut or brown sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 tbl of walnut oil (you can use coconut as well)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbl of water
Optional: top with sea salt before baking
Into a stand mixer, paddle attached, add your flours, baking powder and soda and salt. Blend to combine. Then add the remaining ingredients – I hold off and add the carob chips last. Blend until just incorporated.
Scoop onto a prepared cookie sheet (lined with a silpat liner) and freeze for about 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and once the cookies are chilled, bake for 16 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
