Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

GUEST POST: Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Chocolate and Carrots

Hey everyone, I’m Caroline from Chocolate & Carrots, a blog where I make your favorite desserts a little healthier for you, with a side of my calorie-free cutie pie, Liam! I’ve been loving all of the amazing cookies that you’ve been bringing to Katrina’s Kitchen. I’m so excited to bring a batch too!

I’ve made quite a few chocolate chip cookies in my day and I officially proclaim that these are in my top 5 favorite ever. The two types of chocolate chunks scattered throughout the cookies are a perfect balance of bittersweet and silky smooth. The cookies themselves are soft and chewy…you can’t just stop at one! To top it all they are made with half of whole wheat flour! You’d never guess when you take a bite!

My only regret is that I didn’t save more for myself. I sent them off to my husband’s coworkers to share the love. My thighs are thanking me, but my tastebuds want more! Good thing they are simple to whip up…I’ll just have to make some more right away!

Seriously, who can say no to that ooey, gooey melted chocolate in a just-out-of-the-oven cookie.

Yield: Servings: 17-18 2" cookies or 35-36 1" cookies

Soft Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 Stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 Cup canola oil
  • 3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 Cup unbleached bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped into bite size pieces
  • 6 Ounces milk chocolate, roughly chopped into bite size pieces

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter until creamed (about 2 minutes) with your paddle attachment.
  2. Add in the canola oil, brown sugar, and sugar. Beat until nicely incorporated (about 1 minute).
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
  4. Add in the flours, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Beat until just combined.
  5. Fold in the chocolate.
  6. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  8. Separate the dough into balls. I did 2" (about 2-2.5 oz) balls, but I also did some with 1" (1 oz) balls. Just take your pick!
  9. Place the balls in the fridge until you're ready to bake.
  10. Place the dough balls 2" apart for the 2 oz balls or 1" for the 1 oz balls on a silpat or parchment paper covered baking sheet. With the 2" balls, I fit 5 on a baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 10-12 minutes (12 was my magic number with the 2" balls) until lightly browned around the bottom edges.
  12. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  13. Store in an airtight container.
