Tumaco Cocoa and Powdered Sugar Cookies

I recently found this new Cocoa Powder from Trader Joes. It is a single origin cocoa produced from 100% Tumaco Cocoa Beans, Which are grown in Southern Columbia.  This cocoa powder is gorgeous and full of flavor so I thought this recipe would be perfect to bring out the essence of the Tumaco Cocoa.


1/2 Cup Tumaco Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened

1 Cup Organic Sugar

1/4 Cup Walnut or Canola Oil

2 Organic Eggs

1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1 Cup Organic Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder, Non-Aluminum

1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt

1/3 Cup Organic Powdered Sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl combine the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sea salt. In another bowl combine the oil, eggs, vanilla, sugar and whisk together well. Then combine both mixtures together and stir well then chill for 15 minutes. Prepare a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl. Once the dough has chilled spoon about 1-2 Tablespoons into your hands and form into a ball and coat it with the powdered sugar and continue the same procedure for the remaining dough. Bake for 12 minutes and allow to cool for an hour. These cookies are best cooled or room temperature.

  1. These look delicious–I love the crackled top–I made brownies the other day and I noticed that everyone ate the ones with crackled tops first. Interesting.

      I see recipie using everything organic in which case I would not use canola oul, canola is a GMO product, highly processed and unhealthy, very high in Omega 6 which is not healthy when not balanced with Omega6 and being GMO is even bigger health concern. I would use grapeseed oil instead.
