Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always try to cook and bake with little or no sugar, However, sometimes I cannot resist. Especially when it comes to cookies. Chocolate Cookies!! Please forgive me. However, I can assure you that all other ingredients can perfectly be used with a clear conscience! I will try this recipe with agave syrup one day, and may update this recipe if the result is as good as the sugar version.

1 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups wholemeal pastry flour
3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
80g dark chocolate (min. 70% cocoa)
Heat the butter until liquid and let cool down. Combine sugar and egg and stir well. Stir in butter and vanilla extract . In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Add slowly to the butter mixture constantly stirring until well incorporated.
Shave the chocolate into tiny pieces and gently fold into the dough.
Place teaspoon-sized dollops of dough on a baking tray and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 12 minutes.

Makes about 40 cookies
