This easy recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies is healthy, paleo, and gluten free. Perfectly soft and chewy, completely ideal for the holidays (or any time of the year really)!
So I’m not just a huge fan of most Christmas cookies if I’m being honest. Peppermint drinks and candies are delicious but added into cookies? Not so much. Sugar cookies are fun to decorate and all but does anyone else feel like the flavor just tastes like a mouthful of powdered sugar frosting? Gingerbread? Can’t stand it. I know, I know I’m starting to sound like the Grinch and could really use something to help my heart grow three sizes.
Luckily I have just the thing! As I was sitting and contemplating what cookies to make for the holidays, inspiration struck. Double Chocolate Cookies. Perfect for the holidays and basically every other day too.
They’re so easy to make, have super simple ingredients, and are absolutely dang delicious. Plus if you want to add in a peppermint twist just mix 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract into the batter! Or really take it to the next level by dipping them half way in white chocolate and sprinkling with crushed candy canes!
