Cocoa Lavender Cookies

The weather has finally turned chilly.  Next to the warmth of a lovely heater, wrapped in a little down blanket, I have finally found a moment to share one of my favorite recipes with you.  Cookies have always been a sweet part of my childhood winters. I became the baker of my family as a young girl. So when a fire was lit and blankets brought out it was quite routine for me to whip up a batch for us to enjoy.  Here in our cozy apartment a fireplace is not present, but I still feel the desire to continue the wintery tradition of cookie baking. My Love doesn't seem to mind....

Based off of my Chocolate Chunk Cookie, I created a delicious and aromatic lavender treat.  The Cocoa Lavender Cookie. Yum. Two of my favorite ingredients, lavender and chocolate, combine to create a wonderfully satisfying and perfect fireside cookie.  So grab a soft thick blanket, start a fire and get these cookies in the oven for a cozy and sweet wintery night. From my warm kitchen to yours, cheers!

{Cocoa Lavender Cookies}

2 3/4 cups of Almond Meal or Flour ( sometimes I do half and half for a sturdier cookie )
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp Dried Lavender Petals, chopped
1/2 cup Pure Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil
1/2 cup Agave
1 1/2 tbsp Vanilla
3/4 - 1 cup of Dark or Semi Sweet Chocolate, chopped chunky

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the dry ingredients together and then add the wet.  Gently fold in the chocolate chunks. Scoop dough with a tablespoon. Roll into a little ball in your palm and then slightly flatten on your cookie sheet. Provide an inch or so of space for the cookies to expand. Bake for 6-8minutes, depending on your oven.  Keep a close eye and remove them when they seem firm.  Allow cookies to cool for a good 15 min, then remove with a spatula.  Pair with a little glass of almond milk, wrap yourself up with that cozy blanket and savor each decadent bite!
