Delectable Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Drew kindly told me this morning at 7AM that a coworker of his was retiring and thus, we needed to bring something to the office to say goodbye!  Even though I had brought store bought cookies 3 days prior, what hubby wants hubby gets 😉

So, since I didn’t bring in homemade cookies last time, I decided before work to whip up these delectable treats.  Even though I don’t eat dairy, I did sneak in a bite (or 5) and I definitely would’ve eaten the whole batch if I could’ve….but my body, and the scale, is very happy I didn’t!

Although my dairy free cookies are by far my favorite (and I’m bias since I can eat them guilt free), these certainly will be one of my go to cookie recipes to turn to when Drew decides to surprise me with another cookie request.

Serving Size:  Between 40-50 cookies


1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar lightly packed

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup cocoa powder

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I did 1 cup white chips and 1 cup chocolate chips)

2 teaspoons milk (I used Almond Milk)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt and set aside
  3. In large bowl, beat butter, both sugars, eggs (one at a time), and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the dried ingredients that were set aside in 1 cup increments until well blended. **Tip:  I found the batter to be really dry so I added milk a teaspoon at a time to make it slightly less dry.  You want it to be sticky but not moist so make sure not to add any more than 2 teaspoons
  4. Next, add your chocolate chips and fold into the batter gently
  5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop onto the prepared baking sheets
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set.  I found 8 minutes to help them cook and stay soft
  7. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely
