¾ cup coconut or date sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1¼ cup TCHO Unsweetened 100% Dark Chocolate Baking Discs, chopped into rough chunks

  6. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  7. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes.
  8. Scoop dough into about 2 tablespoon sized portions.  (You can go smaller, just keep an eye on your cookies while they're in the oven!  You may have to shave a couple of minutes off your baking time.)
