INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup / Zucchi Organic Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup / white sugar
  • ½ cup / light brown sugar
  • 1 / egg, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon / vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup / unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup / all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup / dark rye flour
  • 1 teaspoon / kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon / baking powder
  • 3.5 ounces / bittersweet chocolate chunks
  • for finishing / Maldon sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheet pans with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer with a whisk attachment to mix together Zucchi Organic EVOO, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla extract until fluffy.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, rye flour, salt, cocoa powder, and baking soda.

Using a spatula, fold the flour-cocoa mixture into the wet mixture, until the dough has come together and there are no longer any dry bits of flour. Note: the dough will be a bit oily. This is normal!

Fold in the chopped chocolate.

Use your hands to roll the dough into golf-sized balls. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Bake cookies for 15 minutes, until cookies are hardened around the edges. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle the tops with flaky sea salt.

Let cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool for another 15 minutes.
