A "healthier" cookie recipe....thought I would share.....CONTINUATION

So, I made these today...they are sooo good & the kids love them. Will make them more often for sure.


1 ¼ cups unbleached all purpose flour (300 ml)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa(80 ml)
1 ½ tsp. baking powder (7.5 ml)
pinch salt
grated zest of 1 orange
1 tsp. vanilla ( 5ml)
½ cup + 2 Tbsp. sugar (175 ml)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (75 ml)
2 large eggs
¾ cup chopped pecans (375 ml)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Add pecans. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine orange zest, vanilla, sugar, olive oil and eggs. Whisk together until well blended, about 2 minutes. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir with wooden spoon to blend well.
Spoon cookie batter onto parchment paper lined tray leaving 1 inch between them. Bake for 14-16 minutes at 350 D or until just firm

  • Interesting to use olive oil. I know orange and chocolate go great together, though. I'll be trying these.
