Surprisingly Not-Too-Bad for You Chocolate-Marshmallow Cookies


These can be as healthy as you want them, but they are to die for! If you can, I urge you to invest in a stone baking sheet, they are fabulous for making cookies. Also, take the cookies out before you think they're done; they will crisp up after they're taken out.

1 dozen cookies


  • cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup vegan margarine (such as Earth Balance®)

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg white

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips (such as Ghiradelli® 60% Cacao)

  • cup chopped pecans

  • cup marshmallow cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Beat white sugar, margarine, and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg white and vanilla extract; mix until well blended.

  3. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to the sugar mixture gradually, using a wooden spoon to work the dough together. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.

  4. Drop dough by the teaspoonful onto a baking sheet. Smoosh cookies down a little and make an indentation in the middle of each one. Place a small spoonful of marshmallow cream into the indentations.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
