A cookie recipe that doesn't call for a hand mixer? Sign me in!! All you need to mix these double chocolate chip cookies is a wooden spoon, so no beaters to clean up. A little sweet, a little salty, a little nutty, and super fudgy, they might become your new favorite this holiday season!
I love to bake. To me, it's like therapy, only a whole lot cheaper, and most of the time you get to eat chocolate throughout the process. Not too bad, if you ask me.
The one thing I'm not super crazy about baking, is cookies. The fact that they have to be scooped and shaped one by one could definitely be a factor (I'm not exactly known for my patience), but I think what really gets me is the having to use a mixer. Sounds a bit crazy, I know. And I know what you're probably thinking right now, as you roll your eyes: other baked goods, like, let's say, cakes, need an electric mixer most of the time.
Yes. You're right. But it's not the same. Cake batter, for instance, is liquid. You rinse it off, and most of it is gone (read: easy to clean).
Cookie dough, however, is thick. And sticky. And gets all over the place ( kitchen walls, counter and sometimes ceiling. Every. Single. Time.). And heaven forbid you miss a spot as you're attempting to clean the beaters. Once that cookie dough dries out, you need a power drill to get it off. Oh hell no.
Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little. But you get my point. We all have our pet peeves (some of us more than others...), right? Well, this is one of mine.
So, if you're anything like me, and get easily annoyed by random insignificant stuff, you'll probably love these double chocolate chip cookies. All you need to mix the batter is a wooden spoon (read: easy to clean) and they're ready in less than 30 minutes (yes, you still have to scoop and shape them one by one, but hey, they're cookies, they're not gonna do that themselves). Also, they're rich, chocolaty and fudgy, and that hint of pink salt on top? Is everything.
Now, if you're a more normal, even-keeled person, you'll also love these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, but you might also enjoy Cranberry Coconut Cookies. And Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies too. Oh and, happy cleaning 😉

- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, you may use white whole wheat or all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
- 1 flax egg ( 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water) or one large egg
- 1/3 cup tahini
- Himalayan pink salt, any other flaky salt or whatever salt you have on hand
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
- Combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and baking powder in a medium bowl and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Set aside
- In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil and brown sugar until dissolved. Add the maple syrup, vanilla and the remaining 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and whisk well. Add the flax egg and continue whisking
- Add the flour mixture and mix using a wooden spoon, until just incorporated. Add the tahini and mix slightly, so it's not completely blended with the dough (so you can see tahini swirls )
- Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough per cookie and place them on the lined baking sheet, about an inch apart.
- Flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand and sprinkle some salt on top (to taste). Bake for 12 minutes (see note) and let them cool completely
- With this baking time, the cookies will be soft and fudgy. For dryer cookies, bake them for a 2 extra minutes
