I adapted this yummy, easy-to-make cookie idea based off of this recipe on my friend Amari's blog.
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chunks (I used semisweet, but dark chocolate would be good, too)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour
3 Tbs. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup real maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350*F. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In separate bowl, mix oil, syrup, applesauce, and vanilla. Add the wet
mixture to the dry and stir until moist. Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil and spoon rounded tablespoons of
batter onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let
cool briefly. Transfer cookies to cooling rack and enjoy!
Packing these in my lunch box will help me get through working over 62 hours in the next 6 days. A girl can dream, right?!
