Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 350◦.
  • Blend the first five dry ingredients in your food processor. Pulverize until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • In a separate microwave bowl, combine the extracts, oil and ¾ cup of the chocolate chips. Melt in the microwave for two to three minutes or until completely combined (stirring after each minute). Pour the dry ingredients, as well as the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips, into the wet mixture. Stir the batter until evenly mixed and no large clumps remain. Stir until the entire mixture is dark and shiny.
  • Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Using a small ice cream scoop, place the dough in balls on the cookie sheet. Flatten the dough on the parchment paper. The cookies will not spread out any more than the size that you flatten them. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let them sit on the cookie sheet to cool for a few minutes. 
  • Place the cookies on a cooling rack or cutting board to finish cooling.
