Heavenly Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

Chewy, chocolatey, soft… what more do you want in a cookie? I am about to share with you a simple yet yummy recipe that I have shamefully kept to myself for a while now. But it’s time to be nice and allow you to indulge the tastiest chocolate chip cookies.

Fun fact: we moved house recently, and the oven didn’t work (that meant no baking!), so as soon as we bought a new one, I knew I had to test it out with one of my dessert recipes. This was that very recipe! Safe to say, the oven worked marvellously, and out came these delicious, soft cookies that crumbled when you broke them in half, but were just the right amount of chewy-ness.

How many? 6 cookies

How long? 5 mins preparation time, 10 mins cooking time

- 1 cup self-raising flour

- ¼ teaspoon baking powder

- ½ cup brown sugar

- Sprinkle of salt

- 1 tablespoon of non-dairy milk (I used coconut)

- 2 heaped tablespoons of butter

- Drop of vanilla extract

- 1 large bar of chocolate (to chop) or a bag of chocolate chips


1. Firstly, preheat your oven to 180 and line your baking tray (I rubbed six circles of butter onto a baking tray to do this!)

2. Add your dry ingredients to a bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

3. Melt your butter in the microwave, then add it to the dry ingredients with the vanilla extract and non-dairy milk.

4. Mix all ingredients well until the mixture becomes a dough.

5. Chop up the bar of chocolate into whatever size chunks you would like; I love a mixture of big chunks and flakes. Alternatively, add chocolate chips.

6. Use a tablespoon to measure a heaped spoonful of the dough, before shaping it with your fingers. The dough consistency should be slightly moist so it can be easily moulded, but not too wet that it sticks to your hands.

7. I rolled the spoonful into a ball, before putting it on the baking tray then squashing it down slightly to flatten it.

8. Once you have done this with all your dough, pop them in the oven for ten minutes until golden brown.

9. Take them out the oven even if they are a bit soft, as when they cool down they will harden to the perfect texture that’s crumbly yet chewy at the same time.

10. Enjoy with some custard or cream! Or, dip one into your favourite hot beverage or glass of milk… the possibilities are endless of how you can enjoy these cookies!
