Cocoa Cookies

On a Special Sunday’s post I made this delicious and  easy cookies: Cocoa Cookies, that I found on one of my favorite Romanian blogs that I love to browse from time to time: Edith’s Kitchen.You can find the original recipe here.

My family was amazed by the results, despite the little changes that I made here and there. And my co-workers could not believe that something so delicious could come from so few (and let’s not forget HEALTHY) ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup  melted butter ( vegan )
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp of instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp rum extract (you can add a bit more as the taste is not very strong after baking) ( you can also substitute the rum extract with other flavor of your choice; I made with almond extract as well )
  • a pinch of Himalayan salt

In a bowl mix together the melted butter, the sugar, the egg, salt and the rum extract.

In a different bowl mix the flour, cocoa and baking soda.

Add the flour mixture over the butter mixture and mix well.

I have also tried a second batch substituting the egg with apple sauce. I have to admit in look they were slightly different but the taste was just: YUMMY !!!

One thing is sure. I added this cookies on the family list and preferences and because today is Family Day in Ontario,  I hope you all have a great day.
