4 Ingredient Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Cookies

Ingredients:
-1 cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt
-1 cup of dark chocolate chunks {you can use chocolate chips, but I prefer the chunks}
-1 box of organic, gluten free fudge cake mix {or you can use any healthy fudge cake mix of your choice}, or you can also use 3 cups of cacao powder
-Sea salt to sprinkle

Directions:
-Preheat your oven to 350.
-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-In a bowl, mix your cake mix/cacao powder with your Greek yogurt. It will seem very powdery, but just keep mixing. If it seems WAY too dry, you can add 1 tbsp more of yogurt, but if you add too much, the cookies won’t set.
-Slowly mix in your chocolate chunks.
-Place tablespoons of your dough on the parchment paper, leaving an inch or so apart.
-Lightly press down each cookie, as they won’t spread much.
-Sprinkle a touch of sea salt on each cookie.
-Bake for 8-10 minutes. Your cookies WILL feel soft. Don’t over bake. Pull them out after 10 minutes and let them cool and set.

These cookies taste like an amazing, chewy, decadent, brownie/cookie combo. The best part is, they’re not bad for you!

-Gluten free
-40 calories per cookie
-Delicious

Enjoy! πŸ™‚
