Salted Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cookies With Pistachios
makes about 30 cookies
2 cups All purpose flour
3/4 cup Cocoa powder, Dutch processed
1 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Flax seed, ground
1/4 cup Water
3/4 cup Olive oil
2 cups Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla extract
3/4 cup Chocolate chips

Sea salt, for topping cookies
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
In another small bowl, combine ground flax seed and water. Let sit to gel for a minute.
In a larger bowl whisk together olive oil, sugar, and vanilla. Add flax-water mixture, then slowly add dry ingredients. Mix until dough comes together. Then mix in chocolate chips and pistachios. Try not to over mix the dough.
Roll dough into balls about 1 inch thick. Place onto parchment lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on each cookie. Bake for 10-11 minutes, until cookies crack slightly on top. Let cool completely before enjoying.
