Double Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Did I hear double chocolate?? Yes Please!!! Chocolate is my favorite sweet, hands down! That means, I am always trying to add chocolate in whenever I can. haha. Since we are just over a week from celebrating Christmas, I thought it would be fun to dress these cookies up a bit. Adding the candy cane to these brownie like cookies creates such a great texture. The soft cookie with that crunch from the candy cane is so satisfying.

If you haven’t noticed yet my goal is to make cookies that use simple quality ingredients and hopefully you only have to use one bowl. These don’t disappoint in the “easy” department.

How to Make the Cookies

Start by adding all of your dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.

  • Oat Flour
  • Arrowroot
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Cacao Powder
  • Baking Soda

Next add the wet ingredients to dry.

  • Vanilla Extract
  • Melted Salted Butter
  • Egg

Using a hand mixer mix your dry and wet ingredients. Fold in your chocolate chips and mashed candy cane. I like to leave my candy cane pieces a little on the bigger side so that they really stand out.

After you have folded in your candy cane and chocolate chips. You will want to put your dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I have found that chilling this dough helps keep a thicker cookie. If you don’t have time to chill the dough, I don’t think the recipe will be ruined but the texture might be a little different.

After you have chilled the dough, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, scoop the dough and place on the baking sheet. I ended up with 17 or 18 cookies.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Once your cookies are done baking let them cool before moving them around. This allows them to set up. Sometimes if you move cookies or baked goods in general too early they want to fall apart.

These delicious Christmas cookies kept the best taste and texture in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
