Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies bring all the taste of rich dark chocolate with the added benefit of an antioxidant blast. No one will be the wiser that you’ve snuck a few fruits & veggies into these sweet, fudgy, chocolaty cookies.
Have you had enough chocolate yet? I hope not because Choctoberfest is still going strong for another week. I’ve already made delicious Mocha Cheesecake Cookie Cups and Chocolate Toffee Crunch and today I am bringing you a cookie that is hard to resist, Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. Doesn’t that sound decadent and delicious? You’d be right, they are all that and more!
I received some product from one of my favorite health food providers, Barleans, and wanted to put together a cookie that was both delicious and a little bit nutritious. Now you probably won’t want to tell your kids that there are actually vitamins in the cookies, we’ll just keep that as our little secret. 🙂
Barleans, if you have never heard of them before, makes one of the best chocolate vitamin powders around. I’ve been buying it for over a year now and use it all the time in my chocolate smoothies to provide that extra boost of fiber and antioxidant power from their blend of greens, fruits and vegetables. But I just learned they also make a top grade coconut oil too and theirs has a butter flavor. Wowzer! It’s still made of pure coconut oil but with added botanical extracts to create the butter flavor. Their products are always high quality, gluten-free and non GMO and are a nice fit for vegan diets as well.
I love the taste of their Greens powder so I thought why not add it to my chocolate cookies for a little added benefit. I replaced some of the cocoa with the powder, used coconut oil instead of butter and even snuck a banana in there in place of an egg. They came out rich and delicious and no one was the wiser.
They are easy to make, requiring just a little chilling in the refrigerator before rolling but, other than that, it is a simple cookie that anyone can make. Hope you enjoy this little chocolate indulgence as well as all the other deliciousness provided by some of my favorite food bloggers below. Oh, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway to get your own bag of goodies to help you through your holiday baking.
I received complimentary samples of Barleans’ products as well as Imperial Sugar to produce a recipe for Choctoberfest. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
