  1. 150gr all-purpose white flour
  2. 100gr wholewheat flour
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 3/4 tsp baking soda
  5. 1/2 tsp fine salt
  6. 1 1/4 cups dark chocolate chunks (or chips)
  7. 80gr granulated white sugar
  8. 110gr packed brown sugar
  9. 1tsp ground cinnamon
  10. 1tbsp vanilla extract
  11. 1/2 cup any neutral oil (I used safflower)
  12. 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  13. 1/4 cup plus 1tbsp water
  14. Flaky sea salt (I used Maldon) for garnish


  1. In a bowl, mix together flourS, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Add the chocolate to the flour mixture and toss to coat.
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk the sugars with the canola oil, vanilla and water until smooth.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture.
  5. Stir with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula until just combined and no flour is visible. Do not overmix.
  6. Cover the bowl (I use bee’s wax wraps, because ENVIRONMENT!) and put in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  8. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  9. Remove dough from the fridge and use an ice cream scoop or a spoon to portion dough and place on the pan.
  10. Sprinkle the balls of dough with coarse-grained sea salt and bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are just golden.
  11. Let cool slightly before removing them from the sheet pan and finish them on a cooling rack if you have one.
  12. Store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.


I prefer using chocolate chunks i.e a good chocolate bar chopped up, but if you have chocolate chips at hand use those!

I feel ground ginger would also make for a good addition – I think you should go ahead and try that out!

You can use all white flour if you do not have wholewheat – I ended up doing a mixture as it is what I had at hand and it worked out really well for me.
