These inside out chocolate chip cookies are chewy, flavorful and deeply chocolatey! Dutch process cocoa and lots of sweet white chocolate chips make for a rich chocolate taste and warm cinnamon and sweet vanilla make them even more flavorful!



  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dutch process cocoa or natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips, divided


  • flaky sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars on medium speed for 3-4 minutes until fluffy.

  4. Add the eggs one at a time followed by the vanilla. Reduce speed to low and slowly beat in the dry ingredients.

  5. Stir in about 1 cup of the chocolate chips, reserving the remaining ¼ cup to add to the tops.

  6. Form dough into balls about ¼ of batter each. Use a large cookie scoop or an ice cream scoop to measure the batter or eyeball it. Place balls on prepared baking sheets about 3 inches apart. Top each ball with a few of the reserved chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of sea salt.

  7. Bake 12- 14 minutes until tops are just set. Remove from oven and transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
