Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Ginger Crisps

These dark chocolate ginger crisps are perfect for any occasion! They are chewy, chocolatey, and a little spicy. They are a sophisticated version of everyone's favourite- the chocolate chip cookie. This recipe uses whole wheat sprouted grain flour, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and dark chocolate for a more nutritious treat.

Time to get in the holiday spirit my friends!

Today I’ve collaborated with some lovely fellow bloggers to share our best Christmas cookie recipes. Click here for last year’s recipes, including my Vegan Gingerbread Cake and scroll to the bottom of this post for this year’s recipes!

The cookie recipe I’m sharing today is one that has been in my family since I was a little girl, but I modified it to be more nutritious ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom would make these cookies every Christmas, reading from the crinkled up page torn out of a 1994 Gourmet magazine. The scent of spicy ginger and melty chocolate was heavenly wafting through the house and no one wanted to wait for the cookies to cool down before sneaking a bite.

These cookies are chewy, a little spicy, and suuuuper chocolatey. They make a wonderful gift when wrapped up with a bow, or a scrumptious treat after a holiday dinner. I hope your friends and family love them as much as mine do! You may need to make a double batch ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour I used sprouted whole wheat
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • cloves pinch ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup of finely chopped crystallized ginger packed
  • 1 1/2 cups of chopped dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, spices, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat together coconut oil and coconut sugar. Beat in the egg.
  4. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and stir until combined. Fold in crystallized ginger and chocolate pieces.
  5. Scoop out rounded tablespoons of dough, roll into a ball, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave 2 inches of room around each cookie, they spread as they bake. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are dark brown and crispy.
  6. Let cookies cool completely on baking sheet before removing. This is necessary if you want your cookies to stay intact, they're crumbly when hot.
