  • 2/3 cups (approx 10 2/3 Tbsp) Butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp double strength vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp pure mint extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Silk soy milk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 1/3 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup Swirl semisweet chocolate and mint chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • To measure sugar / Splenda mix, scoop 4 Tbsp of Splenda into measuring cup then fill with sugar until it measures 1 cup. Use hand mixer to cream sugar/Splenda mix, butter, vanilla, mint extract and egg until well blended.
  • In a separate bowl, mix cocoa, soy milk and sour cream until well blended and consistent in texture. Add to butter mixture and mix until well blended.
  • Add flours, baking soda and salt and mix until just blended (you may need to switch to a spoon or mix N’scraper if mixture gets too tough). Stir in mint chocolate chips.
  • Using a medium scoop, drop cookie dough balls onto a baking stone and bake for 9-12 minutes or until just set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes on baking stone before transferring to cooling rack

Notes

This is a better-for-you version of a cookie I used to make with my grandmother. These cookies are the perfect blend of chocolate and mint and are super soft and cakey
