Double Chocolate No Flour Cookies

Happy Monday!!! In my world, it's always a good day for chocolate.. ALWAYS! So I'm sharing with you today a recipe that a friend turned me on to a few weeks ago and our entire family is totally hooked.  I've made them 4 times in 2 week, yes we have very well documented chocolate issues!!!  But these are so good you probably will too, so sorry in advance!

The original recipe is from this great gluten free site, I tweak it just a little but the original is great too. We are not a gluten free family, but the way I do "food math" I figure if you cut out something not so great for you you can add more chocolate or eat three cookies instead of one! Makes sense right??? Yes, I get whipped cream on my non fat iced latte.. don't judge!

Double Chocolate No Flour Delights
1/2 cup softened butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 
(or just dump the whole bag in.. food math remember)

Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips, it will be thick just do your best to get it incorporated then mix in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the extra thick chocolate goodness onto a baking sheet, bake at 350 degrees for about 14 minutes.

Because the dough is so dark it can be hard to tell when these are done so watch them closely, if you over cook they are very brittle.. still delicious just a little messy.

Even at 14 minutes, they are still gooey and easily breakable when you first take them out of the oven, so I like to bake them on parchment paper and just pull the whole paper, cookies and all off the tray to cool.  Once they cool and set up a few minutes they stay together perfectly and are AMAZING!

See, chocolate on chocolate to die for "ness".  I know that is not a condition, but it should be!

And because of the unsweetened cocoa powder and the semi-sweet chips, these are rich and delicious but not overly sweet.

This recipe makes 18-24 cookies depending on how big you make them.  It is quick and easy to whip up when you want something sweet. I now keep an extra large tub of cocoa powder on hand so we always have the few simple ingredients for our new favorite treat!
