I took my basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and packed it with super foods. You get vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants with the cocoa nibs and walnuts. Fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids with the flax and chia seeds, and healthy MCT fats in the coconut oil. These cookies are an easy way to treat your kids (or yourself!) with a great tasting dessert that provides nutrition and still satisfies your sweet tooth.

  • Beat brown sugar, coconut sugar, butter, and coconut oil with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into creamed butter mixture until completely blended; beat in vanilla extract with the last egg.

  • Stir hot water and baking soda together in a small bowl until baking soda is dissolved; stir into butter mixture. Add cream of tartar and mix well.

  • Mix flour into butter mixture until dough is smooth; fold in walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, cocoa nibs, and salt. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned around the edges, about 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Cook's Note:

White sugar can be used in place of coconut sugar.

I used grass-fed butter and extra-virgin coconut oil.

A friend of mine made these and we had them at her house. They were so delicious I had to make them myself. I used all coconut sugar and pecans instead of walnuts. I must admit I am a cookie dough lover more than a cookie lover and this dough is amazing! The Chia seeds and cacao nibs give a little crunch that is soooo good! These are just as good baked, too. I love that we get a little more nutrition while getting our cookie fix :). I will definitely be making these again! Read More

5.14.20 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/241934/super-food-chocolate-chip-cookies/ ... I didn't have or couldn't use all ingredients - no nuts, chia seeds, nibs. Yes, this review is based on my cookies, but the base is the same & that's good. Without the nibs, ya gonna want more chips. Without the chia seeds (maybe with, too), more flour. I added 1/4c whole wheat flour. They spread considerably & dough was refrigerated. Maybe a shot more flax would help. Kind of greasy, too. Read More

These were phenomenal! Someone wrote that even the dough was good and they were right! I made a few changes....I only used half a cup of brown sugar I used 1 cup of flour and 2 cups of a protein pancake mix I have sifting them all together. I absolutely will be making these again! Read More

LOVE the combo of nuts semi-sweet chocolate and chia seeds! I didn't have all the ingredients and used only half the amount of sugar (in brown sugar) but found them still too sweet for our tastes... next time I would try adding applesauce in place of some of the sugar and oil. Also I just used baking powder in place of the baking soda and tartar and they fluffed up great! Read More

This are very good, not as good as my normal ones, but pretty good none the less, also little more healthy so its a good trade off I also didn't have dark chocolate chips so I'd imagine it would make it even better If you dont have cream of tartar you can replace it with it with baking powder Read More

Our household follows a vegan lifestyle, so I omitted the eggs completely. Wow! These were delicious and crisp, a quality that I don't always associate with 'healthy' cookies. I will be making these again! Read More

I didn’t change a thing in the recipe and they are great. I have been changing the classic Toll House cookie recipe for years, adding flax seed, grinding up Uncle Sam cereal for part of the flour back in the late 1970s. This recipe takes them to another level. I do wish there was a nutrient and calorie count, but I guess I’ll have to do that myself. I’m at 3500 feet elevation, which is borderline for baking. I pressed them down with a fork and stuck them in the freezer for a few minutes before baking so they wouldn’t be quite so thick. Will make again! Read More

I omitted the cup of Ghirardelli dark chocolate from the recipe. Only used the 1/4 cup of cocoa nibs & feel like that was enough. On 1/2 of the cookies I also sprinkled some coconut flakes on top of them before putting them in the oven. The cookies turned out great with and without the coconut flakes and gave them some variety. And since the recipe made so many cookies I put 1/2 in the freezer. It's nice to have a delicious treat on hand so I don't turn to the store bought processed junk in times of weakness...thanks for the recipe!:) Read More
