New Meal Monday: Chocolate-Ginger Cookies for Two

Sometimes you need a second (or third) cup of coffee during the day. And sometimes you need a little something sweet to go with that coffee. These single-serving cookies are the perfect solution – just enough to satisfy the craving without leaving you with a dozen cookies… staring at you… daring you to eat the entire batch. 🙂

Ingredients
  • 5½ tbsp flour (AP, spelt, whole-wheat pastry)
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp greek yogurt (or oil)
  • Sea salt
Instructions
  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and ginger. Add in the vanilla, maple syrup, almond milk and greek yogurt. Mix until a dough forms, then stir in the chocolate chips. If the dough seems too wet, add a bit more flour. If it's too dry, add a splash more milk.
  2. Divide the dough into four, roll each piece into a ball and place on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Bake in a toaster oven for 7 or 8 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. Serve warm with a good cup of coffee!
Notes
These cookies are quite puffy and will have a cake-like texture, due to the yogurt. If you want a flatter, crisper cookie, I would suggest use a neutral oil instead.

Enjoy!
