Easy Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Jump to Recipe

I have a confession to make – before this recipe I had never made chocolate crinkle cookies before. In fact – I had never even thought twice about them before I polled my audience on IG and it was the #1 cookie. I decided to come up with a healthy and chocolate crinkle cookie recipe to kick off the holiday season.

How to make Healthy Easy Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

  1. Combine

    coconut oil, coconut sugar and eggs first as these are things you don’t want chunks of in your cookies!
    The cocoa you combine in the next part is critical to the flavor of your cookie.

  2. Add Cocoa

How to Make Cookies Crinkle

  1. There are a few methodologies to this – one way is to roll cookie dough balls in granulated sugar and then powdered sugar before putting them in the oven.
  2. This chocolate crinkle cookie recipe is, of course, the easier way – which is just one sugar. It works just as well!

What is a Crinkle Cookie?

Think of a cross between a brownie and a cookie. When I first tasted the batter I was blown away because it’s basically brownie batter. It’s a little bit thicker – hence it becoming a cookie and not a brownie, but equally delicious.

How Long Do These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies Last?

It depends on the house you’re living in… no just kidding! They’ll last about 2 weeks in the fridge or 1 month in the freezer. Although, I doubt they’ll last that long at all, they’re so good!

I hope you’re holiday season has been off to the best start! Family and cookies are my favorite part of this season, by FAR. I hope you’re making these with someone you love! Tag me on Instagram or leave a comment below! I would love to hear from you. Happy Holidays!
