Author Notes

These are hard not to eat right off the cookie sheet — 100% whole wheat flour helps these stay moist, fudgey, and extra super gooey. —Community Grains

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups 100% whole wheat flour (like Community Grains Hard Red Winter Wheat Flour)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  1. Place both sticks of butter on counter to soften, about 1-2 hours.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer place both sticks of softened butter and cream on low with paddle attachment. Add the sugars and cream the butter with the speed on medium-high, until the mixture becomes fluffy and lighter in color. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix until just incorporated.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F. Once the cookie dough is thoroughly chilled, scoop golf-ball sized balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will look under done when you remove them from the oven – don’t worry, as they will continue to cook!
  4. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes before trying to remove them from the cookie sheet. Enjoy immediately after they cool or store in an airtight container for later!

I think some of your instructions are missing too.

When do you add in the cocoa powder? The flour? The baking soda?
Phoebe September 21, 2018
Hi Maggie - Thanks for writing, sorry that we've missed a step or two! You would measure out the dry ingredients in a separate bowl (Cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, salt), and then add them all to the mixer slowly once the butter/sugar is creamed (fluffy). Add the dry ingredients in two or three installments on low so that the flour doesn't fly up in your face. Once the flour is incorporated into the dough, you can add the chocolate chips and anything else liked chopped nuts. Mix on low again to incorporate everything. If you have time, cover the bowl and let it chill in the refrigerator for an hour or more before scooping and baking the cookies.
