Chocolate choc chip cookies
Embracing my kids in the kitchen is really paying off.
Just the other day I sat on the lounge with a cuppa, flicking through a magazine, while chatting to my son who was in the kitchen testing out his creation for Chocolate Choc Chip Cookies. The recipe invention had been on his mind for a while (off course it had to be chocolate on chocolate!)
So on the weekend between basketball and golf he whipped up this batch and saved me having to think about a healthy treat for lunch boxes this week.Winning!
He had a couple of attempts with this recipe (mum got involved the first time and apparently wrecked it a bit) before he was happy for me to blog it. And he wants me to tell you that for some reason, they are yummier after a couple of days!
- 1 cup white spelt flour
- 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
- 2 - 3 eggs (depends on size)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 125gms butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup coconut or rapadura sugar
- 1/4 cup choc chips
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees.
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a one bowl.
- Mix butter, two eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix together until just combined.
- NB: If batter appears too dry, add in the third egg and mix through.
- Roll up tablespoons of dough into balls and place onto lined baking trays.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes. Rotate cookies at 5 minutes.
- Leave them to cool on trays.
- These are delicious with my Notella spread on top : )
NB: My kids are used to less sugar in recipes, if you are just starting to transition your kids away from sugar, you may decide you need more. A sneaky taste of the batter will tell.
Why not spread some Notella on top for some extra decadent deliciousness!
