Chocolate Chai Cookies

I got this recipe from Vegan Joy's blogspot . I couldn't wait to try it. Please check out her blog as well.

Chocolate Chai Cookies

6 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate
1 cup whole wheat flour
¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
pinch sea salt
½ cup canola oil
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup hot, strong black tea
¼ cup molasses
1 teaspoon baking soda
crystal or turbinado sugar, or evaporated cane juic
e, for rolling cookies

Chop chocolate into ¼” chunks. Set aside.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the canola oil, brown sugar, molasses, tea, and baking soda. Add the flour
mixture to the liquid, mixing well to combine. Stir in chocolate chunks. Preheat an oven to 325° F. Lightly grease baking sheet. Form dough into 1” balls. Roll in evaporated cane juice, and place on the prepared baking sheet spaced 2” apart.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until the cookies have flattened slightly and the
tops are cracked; they should be soft to the touch, but covered with a crust. Allow to cool 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Or eat warm, with a glass of almond milk or a cup of hot coffee. (This recipe was copied from Vegan Joy's blogspot.)
