Ever envisioned a treat that combines the luscious, velvety embrace of chocolate with the golden, warming touch of turmeric? If your taste buds are dancing at the mere thought — because, we do too — get ready for a truly delightful journey.
Chocolate biscuits have always held a special place in our hearts. They are the perfect comfort food, a sweet refuge from a challenging day. But what if we told you that there's a way to elevate this classic treat — and making it extra healthy? Just add the magic, and that magic is — Nutra Nourished’s Cocoa Turmeric powder.
The Benefits of Cocoa Turmeric
Before we delve into the recipe, let's uncover the wonder that is Nutra Nourished's Cocoa Turmeric Powder. This unique blend takes two extraordinary superfoods – cocoa and turmeric – and marries them into a delicious and healthful powder.
Cocoa, the beloved chocolaty delight, brings to the table not only its heavenly flavor but also a powerful punch of antioxidants and a mood-lifting embrace. Meanwhile, turmeric, with its radiant golden touch, steps in as the main character, celebrated for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. When these two forces combine, it's like a symphony of flavors that's as indulgent as it is wholesome. It's the dynamic duo for those who crave the sweetness of life while savoring a sprinkle of wellness.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
Yield: Approximately 20 biscuits
- 1 ¼ cups or 156.25 grams all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup or 30 grams cocoa powder
- 2 tsp Nutra Nourished Cocoa Turmeric Powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup or 113 grams unsalted butter, softened
- ⅓ cup or 67 grams granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup or 71 grams brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup or 175 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips
- First things first, fire up your oven to a toasty 350°F (180°C) and get that baking sheet all snugly lined with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, let's create a magical dry blend. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, Nutra Nourished Cocoa Turmeric Powder, baking soda, and a dash of salt. Set this special dry mix aside for its big moment.
- Next, get a separate bowl, bring in the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Now, let's work some magic - cream them together until you've got this fluffy, dreamy mixture. This step usually takes a couple of minutes but oh, the results are worth it.
- Add in the egg and a dash of vanilla extract to the buttery-sugar dreamland. Mix, mix, mix - you're aiming for that beautiful blend.
- Now, the grand moment has arrived. Gradually introduce the dry magic mixture to the wet dreamland, stirring until they become one - a uniform, glorious dough.
- And now, for the grand finale, the semi-sweet chocolate chips take center stage. Gently fold them into your cookie dough - it's now officially party time.
- Grab a spoon or an ice cream scoop. Onto the prepared baking sheet, drop dollops of your doughy delight. Leave some breathing space between each - they're going to spread their wings.
- Into the oven they go - bake them in their cozy space for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the centers still keep that soft touch. Remember, these beauties will settle even after the heat's turned off, so don't overdo it.
- Once they've had their oven adventure, bring them out. Let them chill on the baking sheet for a few minutes - they need a breather - then give them the star treatment and move them onto a wire rack. There they cool, waiting to be devoured.
Ugh! I know, I know — patience? Out the window, for sure! I mean, we just want to grab some mouthfuls. BUT, stop what you are doing and imagine this: as that delightful chocolatey goodness kisses your lips, brace yourself for an incredible explosion of flavors - oh, it's an absolute delight! The cocoa sweeps you away with its familiar, cozy charm, all the while the turmeric steps in, offering a subtle, earthy hug, creating a symphony of taste that's just too good to resist.
And let's not forget about the aroma that wafts from the oven as these biscuits bake. It's an olfactory journey that'll have you eagerly anticipating each batch.
Savoring a chocolate biscuit is more than just enjoying a sweet treat; it's about relishing the medley of flavors and the extra goodness that Nutra Nourished's Cocoa Turmeric Powder brings.
