That’s quite a long title, but doesn’t it sound like a dream? A (mostly) healthy, deep dish, glorious chocolate chip cookie. Well, thanks to amazing 18 year old! Izy over at Top With Cinnamon, this glorious dream is actually a reality!
After my decadent duck dinner last Friday, I knew I wanted something equally delicious and equally as easy to make for dessert. This deep dish cookie hit the spot. It’s sooo good, so easy, and (dare I say) guilt-free! There’s coconut oil in place of butter, coconut sugar and honey in place of white sugar, whole wheat flour, and dark chocolate chunks full of antioxidants. That’s the kind of dessert you always want in your arsenal! Plus, the combination of sea salt and dark chocolate is one made in dessert heaven.
The next time you need a quick yummy dessert to curl up with on a Friday night, or a Monday night, or a Sunday afternoon… or any time of any day… reach for this sinless but indulgent dessert for one.
Healthy Single Serve, Deep Dish, Salted, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tbl. coconut sugar
1 tbl. maple syrup or raw local honey (honey is not vegan)
1/4 tsp. homemade vanilla
1/8 tsp. sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
1/8 tsp. homemade baking powder (or store bought if you’re not allergic to corn or potato starch)
2 tbl. + 2 tsp. white whole wheat flour
1-2 tbl. chopped dark chocolate (I used soy and corn free chocolate chips)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the coconut oil, coconut sugar, honey and vanilla into a ramekin and place in the oven for about three minutes, or until the coconut oil has melted. Remove from the oven and stir with a spoon until blended.
Add the salt, baking powder and flour to the ramekin and stir until a dough forms. Smooth the top of the dough with your spoon.
Gently press chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips) into the dough and sprinkle the top with additional sea salt.
Place the ramekin in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes, until the cookie has turned golden brown but is still slightly doughy in the center.
Take a spoon and dig in. Melt on the floor and weep with gladness!
It’s actually that easy! Enjoy!
