Sweet Chocolate, Buttery Macadamia Nuts and Salty Sel Gris
In my opinion, Cookies fit into the food categories of: Comfort, Snack, Dessert, Hormonally Craved, Just Because and Can I have more please?
Since I believe Cookies fit into so many different categories, I must get creative with the combination of flavor, texture and overall goodness for each one! So for this particular recipe I came up with, I think you should decide which category they fit into.
2 C Organic Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 C Organic Evaporated Cane Juice
1 1/2 Sticks, Organic Sweet Cream Butter
1 1/2 C Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 C Macadamia Nuts, Chopped
2 Organic Eggs
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Organic Molasses
3 Heaping Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (non-dutch pressed)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Sel Gris
Cream the butter and sugar together, then add in the Molasses, Olive Oil and lightly beat in the eggs one at a time until the mixture is well combined.
In another bowl combine the Flour, Chocolate Chips, Macadamia Nuts, Baking Soda and 1 teaspoon of the Sel Gris, whisk till combined.
Combined the wet mixture with the dry and stir together well, unlike Muffin Batter, you should not see any dry ingredients.
When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 375 degrees
Arrange cookies a few inched apart from each other and top with the remainder Sel Gris a top each cookie and bake for 10 minutes.
Sit down with a cookie, cappuccino and enjoy!
