Ingredients to make Fresh Basil Chocolate Chunky Cookies

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 125 grams of dark chocolate bar roughly chopped
  • 2/3 cup of chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of all spice powder
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of water
  • coarse salt for sprinkling

How to make Fresh Basil Chocolate Chunky Cookies

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, all spice powder and salt. Now add the chocolate chunks to the dry ingredient mixture and gently toss to coat.
  2. In a separate large bowl, whisk together both the sugars with the olive oil and water until smooth and thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes. If there are sugar lumps, you may need to break them up before whisking.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture along with chopped basil leaves, and then stir using a wooden spoon until just combined. No flour should be visible but do not over mix. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight
  4. Preheat the oven to 180° C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or butter paper, alternatively you can grease the pan.
  5. Remove dough from the refrigerator, using a spoon or an ice cream scoop.
  6. Place dough into 2-inch mounds on the prepared pan. It is recommended to freeze the balls of dough (after placing them on cookie sheet) for 10 minutes before baking as the cookies retain their shape better during baking.
  7. Remove the dough balls from the freezer and sprinkle the dough balls with coarse-grained sea salt, and bake for 12 to 13 minutes, or until the edges are just golden. Do not over bake. Let cool completely before serving.
My Tip: Adapted from Ovenly original recipe. Original link can be found on my blog. You can alternatively use 1 ¼ cup of chocolate chips of your choice (as in the original Ovenly recipe) in place of chocolate chunks. Sprinkling the sea-salt on top of cookies before baking is a very nice addition. Freezing the dough balls, really helps in retaining the shape of the cookies, so do not skip this step.
