How much flour should we take out if we would like to add cocoa powder for a chocolate flavored dough?

Agree with drbabs recommendations.
Keep in mind both the cocoa powder and flour are powders, but they have different properties.
The previous hotline discussion she linked to is very informative.

I think it’s something you’re going to have to experiment with. There was a discussion about this on Hotline a while back. Here it is: https://food52.com/hotline/19632-using-cocoa-in-place-of-flour

Maybe best to use a tested recipe for chocolate cookies, and add spices if you like. https://food52.com/recipes/8088-holiday-sables
