- 1 c. flour
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- pinch of ground cinnamon
- pinch of regular salt
- ½ c. + 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- ⅔ c. granulated sugar
- ½ c. unsweetened applesauce
- ⅓ c. plain nonfat yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Wagco Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 tsp coarse sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350° and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix the first four ingredients (flour through regular salt) together.
In a large bowl, stir together the cocoa, sugar, and applesauce. Mix in the yogurt, vanilla, and balsamic vinegar. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated.
Drop about 1 tbsp of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten with your fingers or the back of a spoon, and sprinkle with a bit of the coarse sea salt. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bake at 350° for 9-11 min. Cool on the pan for 5-8 min before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
