chewy Chocolate Cookies
My first pregnancy was fairly standard. I was sick for the first trimester, on top of the world for the second and getting tired in the third. The birth was, well, everything I could have hoped for. Isn’t that exactly how it is meant to be?
With my second pregnancy I was constantly sick, day in and day out. That was ok; I had desperately awaited this pregnancy and was not going to complain. This birth was a deal more, what is the word? Intense, than my first. But I held my healthy bub and all was well.
Establishing breast feeding was a little tricky with both but we got there and continued on smoothly. Why am I telling you all of this? Because many of my friends have recently entered Motherhood, or they are soon to be bringing another baby into their family. This has raised the question, would we like a third child? I am ok with another pregnancy, I could even do IVF again, and while the birth itself does scare me; I could do it. Breast feeding and I are not great friends but I’d be ok with that too. What frightens me the most is the sleep deprivation! We do not have family around, it is my husband, who works long days, and I. Our families are a state away.
When my kids were born they were the sweetest little things, they smelt divine, they curled up on my chest, grasped my finger and made my heart melt. But they did not sleep. Apparently some do, from day one I have heard, not mine. The fatigue is hard! I remember days of being happy one minute and crying the next; rocking a baby at midnight thinking I cannot possibly survive another 24 hours, and everyone snapping simply because everyone needed sleep! Thankfully I didn’t have it half as bad as some Mothers. Firstly, I had spent years living with insomnia and had adjusted quite nicely to functioning on little sleep. Furthermore my kids weren’t in the ‘we need sleep school’ category, they were in the ‘normal but not great’ group. During this time, one of my greatest sources of energy, strength and happiness was cookies. Cookies I could make mindlessly with a baby in my arms; cookies I could over indulge in without feeling too guilty. Cookies I was happy for my oldest daughter to eat daily, cookies I could grab at 4am or 11pm and feel fine about. Most importantly, cookies I thoroughly enjoyed!

I love chewy cookies! I also like them to be rich, dense and full of flavour. Our Chewy Chocolate Cookies tick all of my boxes and make my family and friends very happy. If you are a sleep deprived mum, if you know a sleep deprived mum, or if you are soon to be sleep deprived mum, I strongly suggest you get onto these. May they help you as they have helped me.

They’re in the oven cooking right now! Also whipped up your apricot bites for the first time today, and we all loved them. I have a meeting at my house tonight, so I’m looking forward to seeing what people think of the apricot bites and these biscuits. I love that I can offer people healthy treats, so thanks again for another awesome recipe!

Can u substitute for another nut? Like
Cashews?

Reply
bianca August 6, 2013 - 12:28 pm

Hi Mary, it will not be quite the same and as other nuts do not produce the same amount of oil it will be harder to blend, however it is certainly worth giving a shot and it will still taste delicious I imagine. Be sure to let me know how you go. Many thanks, Bianca

Reply
Juj November 18, 2013 - 4:23 pm

I tried these with cashews as I only had a few macadamias at home. They turned out well. Unfortunately, I left them in the oven for a few minutes longer than necessary and they are a bit dark.. but still tasty. I will try them with macadamias when I restock. (Wish nuts and dates weren’t so expensive!)

Do you need to chop the nuts or the dates? The cookies look so smooth! Can I put the ingredients in my stand up mixer? Or is it better by hand?

Reply
bianca August 11, 2013 - 1:36 pm

Hi Heather, I simply add the ingredients to a high speed blender or food processor and pulse until smooth, you may need to push the mixture back onto the blades several times depending on what appliance you are using. I hope this helps. Bianca

I made these the other night with great hopes of having them ready for a not so naughty afternoon pick-me-up during the week.

Delish! Cashews worked great 🙂 A wee bit oily so I added some chia seeds to soak it up, help them bind & boost the omega 3 content. I also made your nut free version for my son to take to school… heaps oilier again so I threw in some puffed quinoa & let it sit for a bit to soak in before baking. Super yummy!
So grateful for all your hard work & your generosity in sharing. Cheers!

I have made these before and they are big hit. Today I tried making them with tahini instead of the nuts. They turned out very differently and i not sure where i went wrong :(. Are we meant to use a whole cup of tahini in substitute of the nuts?
Thanks for these great recipies. They are helping keep my family away from packet eating. 🙂

Reply
bianca August 21, 2013 - 7:34 pm

Hi Kelly, yes I do use a whole cup. Perhaps try and use the thicker tahini as opposed to the more oil part at the top. Another option is to use sunflower seeds. I hope this helps, Bianca

Just discovered this website, having so much fun browsing!
Tried the cookies today, had some mint leaves from the garden that needed using so I chucked them in too = choc mint cookies. YUM!
My 16 month couldn’t even wait before they were cooked – just got stuck into the mixture.
Only issue is my blender didn’t cope well with it so they were a bit coarser than the ones pictured… think I will have to invest in a processor.

I love these cookies. I made them a couple months back when I discovered the recipe on another blog, but your story has inspired me as all three of my bubs havent been great sleepers. my third, now 7.5months, suprised me sleeping like a dream (6-9hour stretches) from early on but at 5months that all went out the window and she now sleeps up to 2hours at a time through the night. exhausted doesnt even begin to describe how I feel these days, but I’ve seemed to been able to adapt to sleep deprivation over the years.

Just one question though, my son is not allowed to take food with nuts in… What is hulled tahini compared to tahini? I have made them with nuts today and we’ll have them (most probably all of them…. My husband will be very lucky if we save him one) after school so it was ok with the macadamia nuts.

Tried making these yesterday with cashews instead of macadamias as that’s what I had in the cupboard and they’re much cheaper. I think they’re really tasty and so does my husband and daughter, but my son doesn’t agree unfortunately.
Maybe I didn’t process the ingredients for long enough, or the change in nuts made a difference, but I didn’t find that they stuck together enough to make balls, so I added a bit of melted butter for extra moisture and this helped to bring it all together.

Thought I’d try this recipe and had only sayer dates and tahini on hand so gave that a go. I’ve used Sayer dates in every recipe I’ve tried that calls for medjool dates and it’s been fine. Sadly this time I might as well have just eaten spoonfuls of Tahini. I think maybe it needs less tahini? Ick. But will get some macadamias and try again coz everyone else says they taste awesome.

This recipe really appealed to me today, I am 39 weeks pregnant with my second and can’t do a lot, so I have been experimenting a little and trying to get some energy boosters into the fridge for the coming weeks of sleep deprivation and breastfeeding establishment :). Is there any reason why you can’t leave this mixture in the fridge and bake as required? I’m thinking of making a huge batch today and popping in the oven every few days or so. Perhaps I’m being a bit naive in thinking they might last that long in our house!
Kate

HI Katie, I think that will work perfectly fine, it is a great idea, you can even keep the mixture in the freezer, or you can bake the cookies and store them in the freezer, you can even eat them straight from the freezer!! All the best with your baby. Many thanks, Bianca

Yum! These were delish, even though they were a little chunky because my food processor isn’t very powerful – it’s ten years old and I thought for a minute it was going to throw in the towel, but it pulled it off for me! I used dried dates that I soaked for a few minutes in boiling water and they worked out just fine. Next on my list: Jersey Caramels! Thanks for the great recipes.

I made these with my two year old daughter yesterday- fun, quick, easy and so yummy! Though..this morning I put went to put them in a snack container for my daughter and they were soft- yummy still but more like eating cookie dough? Is that what they’re meant to be like? Should I have cooked them a bit more- I like mind to have a bit of a crunch and then chewy centre… What would you recommend because I DEF want to make these again! Thanks for that you do;)

bianca November 26, 2013 - 8:13 pm

Yes that does happen, I have some cookies coming up that don’t do this so be sure to keep your eye out. You can keep these in the freezer (even eat them straight from the freezer) or you can add 2-4 teaspoons of coconut flour when you make them. I hope that helps. Bianca

Many of Bianca’s recipes are incredibly simple and use very few ingredients – it’s hard to believe they can be so tasty. We can highly recommend her Chewy Chocolate Cookies – made with just 3 ingredients in about 5 minutes, healthy and sooo good! Yes, you read right. Chocolate cookies that are healthy.

[…] 20. Chewy Chocolate Cookies These chocolate cookies are nice and chewy so you can get the feeling like they’re fresh from the oven, even if they’re not. They have a mixture of dates and macadamia nuts, and they’re using straight cacao powder so there’s no hint of milk chocolate here. It’s these little differences that make such a big difference. Milk chocolate has dairy and refined sugar in it, so by going with cacao powder you cut that out and you are left with the chocolate sans dairy and sugar. That spells a win for Paleo followers. […]

Hi Hayley, did you use hulled tahini? It is less overpowering then unhulled tahini which I personally do not especially like. Alternatively increase the amount of dates that you use. Also, did you use medjool dates?
Thanks, Bianca

Hi Bianca,
I can totally relate to your story :-)… I have just had my first child who is now 11.5 weeks old.. Prior to falling pregnant I suffered with insomnia also and I thought this would work in my favour as I was use to surviving on no sleep… However (and this is a BIG however ha ha), I had no idea what tired was until my baby was approximately 9 weeks old, the adrenalin wears off and I experienced tiredness that I had no idea existed.. Whilst I was pregnant people would say to me “you better enjoy your sleep now” or “you don’t get time to eat with a baby” to which I thought was rubbish but now here I am almost 12 weeks later walking around some days like a hungry zombie 😉 I was going to feature your jersey caramels on my blog and facebook page but I actually ate them before I got a chance to photograph them, woops.. But these sound yummy and your story made me smile… Is there any way you can recommend storing these to keep them crisp as I prefer my cookies crisp, I saw in the comments you mentioned the freezer but I imagine this would just make them hard and not as much a cookie.. No biggie if you can’t but I thought I would ask xx

Thank you. I think you are doing exceptionally well to be maintaining a blog and FB page while looking after your new baby!!
