Rich chocolate cookie loaded up with sweet chocolate chunks!
Ever have one of those weeks where seriously…everything does *not* go as planned? Like every single thing on my list to do last week got changed, altered, or completely canned.
So it also just happened to be the week my dear husband *and* the baby of the family have birthdays. We already had celebrated with a party for the baby a couple weeks back, but I had planned on making a small batch of cupcakes to celebrate the 2 birthdays that are only 2 days apart.
I cannot think of a more chaotic day I have had all summer than that day that I planned to make those cupcakes, and long story short I found myself at 4:00pm feeling pretty crummy that my birthday hubby and baby weren’t going to have much more than a happy birthday squash for their dinner that night!
I can do cookies right?! Those are fast!
But a recipe! I need a recipe!
I don’t ever make cookies…I needed something to follow!
Just throw in what you have to go from there!
What can go wrong with chocolate, right?!
It just happens to be that anything chocolate my husband will pretty much be head over heels for so I figured how bad could they turn out!
They were SO good! I literally threw everything into my food processor, blended it up, scooped it out and 10 minutes later we had super chocolate-y cookies to celebrate with that night!

- 2 pastured eggs
- ¼ cup organic pure cane sugar (these were mildly sweet - if you have young children start here, if you have older children used to sweeter things you might need to bump this up to feel like what they are used to)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup cold butter, chunked up
- ½ cup white rice flour
- ½ cup brown rice flour
- ¼ cup tapioca flour
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
- ¾ cup Enjoy Life chocolate chunks (the chocolate chips would work fine too if that is what you have!)
- Put the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract into your food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes until fluffy.
- Put the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chunks into the food processor and blend to combine completely.
- Add the chocolate chunks and pulse to combine.
- Scoop the dough onto a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Push the dough down into about the shape you want as these won't spread out much - they will puff up a bit. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool a few minutes before handling.
