With the colder months being upon us, plus the tons of work I have do to for uni, I have been in desperate need of comfort food! And what better comfort food is there than chocolate cookies? Inspired by different cooking sites (and by the French version of the Great British Bake Off, I confess), I’ve come up with an healthy-ish organic cookie recipe:
For 9-10 cookies, you’ll need:
55 g butter
175 g light brown sugar
28 g cocoa powder
1 medium organic egg
a pinch of salt
1/6 tsp baking powder
130g wholewheat flour
50 g milk
50 milk chocolate chips (or dark, as you prefer)
First, preheat your oven at 180 degrees. Then line a baking tray with parchment.
Melt the butter in a medium heated saucepan.
Once the butter’s melted, take off the heat and stir in the brown sugar and egg.
Add the cocoa, salt and baking powder and stir until everything is well combined.
Add the flour and continue stirring until no floury patch is left.
Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
I took 1 tbsp of dough for each cookie. If you like chewy cookies, like I do, try to make small balls rather than spreading the dough, once cooked the middle will be all gooey and awesome.
Bake your cookies for 8 to 10 minutes.
Don’t worry if they are still soft when you take them out of the oven. Let them cool down for 30 minutes before devouring them!
These cookies are heavenly, AND you won’t need to do a lot of washing up afterwards as you’re only using a sauce pan to mix up all those lovely ingredients! And that’s a win for me!
On that cheerful note, I’m off listening to Michael Buble’s Christmas album (and finishing those damn essays *sob*)!
