Mood Boosting Easy Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking chocolate chip cookies and have always loved cookies, they really hit the spot! I have made this recipe of chocolate cookies quite a number of times now and wish to share it with you chocolate lovers. One of the ingredients I am going to push for you to include is the healthy and tasty cacao powder; packed with antioxidants and magnesium, you will be able to enjoy your cookies and know you are benefiting from them.


  • One cup of soft butter
  • Half a cup of sugar/honey
  • Half a cup of raw Cacao powder
  • Two eggs
  • Two teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • Three cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 and half teaspoon of salt
  • A pack of chocolate chips

Oven:  350 F (175C)


  • Add butter and sugar into a bowl and whisk until creamed.
  • When creamy, add eggs one by one into bowl and then the vanilla, baking soda, cacao powder and flour – now use hands to mix all together.
  • Add the chocolate chips.
  • Begin forming a ball shape and pushing the dough down according the preference.
  • Bake for 10mins in oven until golden brown

This is my favourite recipe to cook on any day of the week! It really is a pleasant dessert to consume, especially with the cacao powder in it. Some of the benefits of Cacao powder for you:

  • Mood improver – contains amandamide (bliss molecule) that produces euphoria.
  • Hormone helper – contains serotonin that improves your overall well being. Ideal for woman during PMS.
  • Heart protector – contains anti inflammatory antioxidant. Also improves blood circulation.
  • Prevents aging – polyphenol antioxidants are in Cacao that prevent aging and keep your skin looking good.
