Chocolate Brownie Cookies


I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want a cookie!  I'm not talking about your basic chocolate chip (although I will never turn down one of those either!) but I mean a fudgy, over-the-top, chocolate indulgence.  Wait, does this make me high-maintenance?  Who cares if chocolate is involved?!  So today I am going to be sharing with you one of my top cookie picks! 

Here’s what you’ll need… 

1 cup all-purpose flour


1 tsp baking powder


1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


1/2 tsp salt
 



3/4 cup granulated sugar


1/3 cup coconut oil


2 large eggs


1 tsp vanilla extract


1 cup powdered sugar 
 


       In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, espresso powder, and baking powder.


       In a separate large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the coconut oil and granulated sugar together until fluffy, about two minutes. 
 

       Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, mix well.  Next, add the dry ingredients then continue mixing until fully combined.
    Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least three hours.

       Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
 

       Place the powdered sugar into a small bowl.  Roll the dough into little balls that are about one inch around, then roll the cookie dough balls in the powdered sugar to fully coat them.

       Place on the prepared cookie sheet, spacing the cookies about two inches apart.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
        When they are done baking, you should have a cookie that is crispy on the outside but oohhh so soft and gooey on the inside! 
 
Enjoy the chocolatey goodness!
