“From "Chocolate Never Faileth" Cookbook. Delish.”
36 Cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease cookie sheets (I used stoneware and did not grease the stones).
  3. Blend flours, baking powder and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.
  5. Add orange extract, vanilla extract, and eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each one.
  6. Add flour mixture and stir until well combined.
  7. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.
  8. Drop by rounded teaspoons on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. (I open the oven about a minute before they are done and quickly flatten with a fork because I found the dough to be too sticky to flatten easily before baking).
  9. Bake 9-12 minutes, until edges are barely golden brown. Do not overbake. Even slightly underdone is o.k. so the cookies will stay soft.
  10. Store in an airtight container. Then eat for breakfast, or a snack, or whenever. Because, you know, these are healthy :).
