Dark Chocolate Chili Cookies with Kumquat Glaze

Morning all! I hope you have a marvelous Monday and a wonderful start to your week. I thought I’d share a recipe with you today that I whipped up this past weekend and cannot believe how crazy good it turned out! Dark Chocolate Chili Cookies with Kumquat Glaze.


Yes. Dark Chocolate Chili Cookies with Kumquat Glaze.


These were absolutely sensational! I don’t even know where to start with these chocolately, chewy, decadent cookies.


Clearly I’ve still been in a baking mood. I believe made this batch at about 9:30 pm on Saturday night. What can I say, I was craving cookies and this is what resulted from the ingredients I had on hand.


The cinnamon spiced chocolate with subtle notes of kumquat makes this flavor profile superb. Factor in the hint of chili and this cookie is taken to the next level! Chocolate, cinnamon and chili. Perfection. Add a little kumquat (a citrus fruit similar to an orange) and you’ve got yourself one phenomenal cookie.


When you can’t believe how good this light, fluffy, doughy and chewy cookie is, you’ll bite into one of the melted, ooey, gooey dark chocolate chips and think you’ve died and gone to heaven.


Best. cookies. ever.

Dark Chocolate Chili Cookies with Kumquat Glaze

Makes 12 cookies

1/2 cup unsweetend applesauce

1/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp kumquat marmalade

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

3 tbsp cocoa powder

1 and 1/4 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp chili powder

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

To make these cookies start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees, and making your flax egg by combining 1 tbsp of flax seed with 3 tbsp of water and placing in the fridge for 10 minutes to gel.

While flax egg is thickening, combine the applesauce, sugar, marmalade and vanilla in a small bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon and chili powder.

When the flax egg is ready, add it to the wet mixture. Stir to combine.

Then mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Fold in dark chocolate chips, and form into 12 cookies (about a tablespoon size each).

Bake for about 11 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Enjoy!

Freshly baked cookies make my day,
