Spicy Spiced Chocolate Cookies

These use more “traditional” baking ingredients, but the millet adds a crunch and the spices add real spice–careful with the cayenne! The cookie texture is light and airy but not dry and not cakey either… let me know how you’d describe it!

Total time (including baking): 25 min. Makes about 20 medium-sized cookies.
