Chocolate chip & ’weed cookies

Chocolate Chip Weed Cookies

Ocean Greens presents no shortage of challenges when it comes to flavors and cooking: seaweed ice cream, seaweed bread, green breakfast smoothies, and now it’s chocolate and seaweed in a cookie! This is exactly what seaweed does; it challenges, tickles, intrigues, and seduces. Learning how to taste, mix, and comfortably handle these vegetables from the sea are the keys to this seaweed adventure. Hopefully, seaweed will secure a permanent spot in your pantry.

Makes 10 to 12 cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the flour, chocolate, pecans, cane sugar, sea lettuce, vanilla, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the rice syrup, oil, and water and then stir it into the flour mixture. Knead well with your hands until the ingredients come together in a dough.
  2. Form small balls from the dough, place them on the baking sheet, and flatten them slightly (but they should still be thick).
  3. Bake the cookies for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. The cookies will be crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool.
