During this two-day holiday, why not whip up a batch of delicious, ooey-gooey, chocolate chip cookies?! This is my favorite recipe, and it's easily adaptable to meet your diet needs. Feel free to throw in some chopped nuts, shredded coconut flakes, dried cranberries, or whatever else your heart desires!!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup butter (or substitute)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 sugar
- 2 eggs (or chia/flax eggs - recipe below)
- 1 tsp vanilla pure extract
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- whatever other goodies you want to throw in!
- 1 tbs flax or chia seeds
- 3 tbs water
Okay, on to the really good stuff. Cream the butter and sugars together in a large bowl. Add the vanilla extract and eggs (or substitute!). Then you will add the dry ingredients: salt, baking soda, and flour. Mix well to combine. Finally, add the chocolate chips and other goodies. You really can't have too many. Put desired size of cookie on a parchment-paper-covered cookie sheet with plenty of room for them to spread. Bake in the oven, preheated to 350 degrees, for 10-12 minutes.
Lastly, try to let the cookies cool long enough before eating straight out of the oven. Cookie burns can be dangerous too! ;) Hope you have a wonderful, cookie-filled weekend!
