1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 large egg whites

1/3 cup of dark chocolate finely chopped ( approx. 57 grams) OR 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Prepare cookie sheets by lining with silpat, parchment paper OR spraying with nonstick spray. 

2.  Measure out flour and combine in small bowl with baking soda and salt.  Set aside. 

3.  In medium bowl, with electric mixer, combine the softened butter and the brown sugar and mix until light and fluffy.  Add in the granulated sugar and mix for a minute or so longer.  Add cocoa, egg whites, and vanilla extract, beating well.  Gradually add in flour mixture, beating until well combined.  Stir in chocolate chunks.

4.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.  ( it will be a stretch, but if you are careful you CAN get 40 cookies from this dough)   Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Remove from oven when done and allow to cool on pan for a minute or two before placing them onto a wire rack to cool.
