Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t be tempted to over-bake because they will be dry and could easily burn. Instead of chocolate chips, try using chunks of really dark chocolate. - Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Makes: 12-14 cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (*See Note Below)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa, preferably Dutch processed (I use Droste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 Tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts or pecans (I like a mix of both)


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Sift dry ingredients onto wax paper or into a bowl. Set aside.
  4. With an electric mixer on med-high, beat butter, oil, sugars, egg & vanilla for 2 minutes until thick.
  5. With mixer on lowest speed, stir in flour mixture followed by chocolate chips and nuts.
  6. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto parchment.
  7. Bake 10-11 minutes, no more. They should still be soft.
  8. Cool on baking sheet for 1 minute. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Flour Note: For a softer, more spreadable cookie, reduce the flour to one cup. To see a photo in my blog click here.

Want Whole Wheat?: For whole wheat cookies use 3/4 cups all purpose flour + 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour.

    Made these cookies with white, milk and semi sweet choc chips (no nuts) …. delicious!! I used Dutch processed cocoa but was wondering if I used Hershey’s cocoa instead, do I need to adjust the amount of baking soda?

    I’ve tried several of your recipes and they’ve all been fabulous. Looking forward to trying more !!

    Thanks for taking my question.
    I would love to try your cookie recipes but my husband is diabetic and it would be helpful to know the nutritional value of your recipes before attempting them.
    Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Jenny,

    I appreciate you for sharing such a nice recipe! I made your double chocolate chip cookies last night, and they were very delicious! I was not sure it was right to use rounded teaspoons for dropping dough not tablespoons, but I just did it because I wanted to follow your direction. They were super cute, and I loved it. Anyway I am just curious you meant teaspoons not tablespoons for shaping. I am going to get some sprouted wheat and make your sprouted whole wheat flour bread! Thank you, Jenny! Merry Christmas and happy new year!

      Yes, that is confusing. I generally use 2 teaspoons to drop the dough but I will clarify that is should be a tablespoon for size. Thank you for asking.

    What brand of chocolate chips cookies do you use? Are they semi sweet. I didn’t use semi sweet and also they don’t see to melt like shown in your picture here.

    I only have white pastry flour. Would it be OK if I use that instead of whole wheat pastry flour?

    • Jenny

      White pastry flour is very fine so I would suggest just using all purpose flour.
