When you are perpetually on a diet, but still fond of these simple pleasures like cookies, cakes and biscuits, the best way, I find, is portion-control. These mini chocolate cookies do the job perfectly well!

  1. 2 ½ cups wholewheat flour
  2. 1 tspn salt
  3. 1 heaped tspn baking powder
  4. 2 tbspns organic brown sugar
  5. 1 cup vegetable oil
  6. ½ cup + 1 tbspn organic extra virgin coconut oil
  7. 4 tbspns fresh natural yogurt
  8. 1 tspn coconut essence
  9. 1 tspn organic vanilla essence (optional)
  10. ½ cup dark chocolate chips

This cookie dough can be made in just 1 bowl. The recipe makes about 40 mini cookies, or 20-22 larger ones.

Preheat the oven to 150 C

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and mix well.
  • Make a well in the centre, and add the oils, vanilla and coconut essences, and 3 tbspn of yogurt.
  • Mix well until combined uniformly.
  • Line and grease a baking sheet/cookie sheet.
  • Just before you transfer blobs of the cookie dough onto the sheet, add in the last tbspn of yogurt and mix well again. Now make blobs smaller than a lemon, and place them on the cookie sheet
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the cookies are light brown and still slightly soft in the centre.
  • Let them cool completely before storing them away.
