Chocolate Cookies

Yummmm. These cookies are even better with a little fat free frozen yogurt. The perfect summer treat!


1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I used regular whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (It said to sift it, but I didn't)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 TBSP unsalted butter
1 large egg white

Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl

In a separate bowl blend brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter together with a mixer until combined, but still grainy. Add the egg and vanilla, blend until smooth

Add the flour mixture and combining all of the ingredients

Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and gather the dough into your hands. Roll dough out onto your work surface and roll into a log, approximately 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Wrap the dough log in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours)

When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats

Unwrap your log roll and slice in 1/4 inch rounds, placing them on the baking sheets

Bake for 20-30 minutes
