Salted Triple Chocolate Cookies
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup cocoa powder, unsweetened (Dutch processed)
½ teaspoon salt, sea or flake
4 ounces chocolate, semi sweet
4 ounces butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces chocolate chips (2 oz milk chocolate; 2 oz dark chocolate or 4 oz semisweet)
Additional Flake Salt to sprinkle on top of cookies (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.
Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler, while stirring gently. After the butter and chocolate have combined, blend (off heat) with the sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture in parts until it is mixed well, but do not over-mix. Stop when everything is blended. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop (about 3-4 tablespoons), scoop cookies onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with flake salt (optional). Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven and let cool on the baking sheet.
