Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies – super moist and chocolatey these amazing cookies have become our family’s favorite sweet treat!
I started making these chunky cookies a few weeks before Christmas and I believe I’ve made them at least 6-7 times already. I know, that’s a lot of cookies but they’re seriously delicious, I warn you! 🙂 And not to mention how simple they are, easy as pie, really! 🙂
I’ve never been a big cookie fan to be honest but I admit these have become my favorite treats recently. They’re super moist (lots of butter!), chocolatey and just perfect.
The first few batches I made were chocolate chip only – these were the kids’s favorite. Recently, I’ve been adding nuts, seeds and dried fruit, apart from the chocolate, and this updated version has become my favorite. I just can’t get enough of them!
I’ve used some raw cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds, goji berries & cranberries. And for the chocolate chips I used the kids’s leftover chocolate Santas. They had way too many of these so this is a great way to reuse them and not waste. Whou would waste chocolate anyway? 🙂
Here’s how to make these Chunky Cookies
- 225g flour
- 150g dark brown sugar
- 150g butter, melted
- 2tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4tsp salt
- 150g chocolate chips
- dried fruit, nits and seeds, if wished
- Preheat the oven to 190°C.
- In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and sugar.
- Add the egg, melted butter and vanilla and mix well.
- Add the chocolate chips and some seeds, nuts and dried fruit, if wished.
- Make small balls and arrange them on a baking tray ensuring there's enough space between.
- Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes. Let them cool down completely.
These Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies taste even better with coffee/milk/tea. I can probably get half a dozen down with some milk or coffee or even tea. But hey, they’ve got some raw nuts, seeds and dried fruit so that makes them half-healthy? 🙂 Just joking! There’s nothing wrong in indulging yourself a bot (or a lot). These are definitely worth every calorie. 🙂
I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for more quick, easy and tasty recipes coming very soon. I hope you all have a lovely week! Hopefully we get some sunshine too. 🙂 xx
