Simple recipe for the best cookies ever.
"A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand." - Barbara Johnson, author
Cookies are among my favourite comfort foods. Crispy outside, soft and still warm inside. And the excitement is always huge when the whole kitchen smells of the delicious biscuits while baking. I always make a lot of dough, so that I can freeze small balls of it and bake them fresh when Luca and I need something sweet in the evening (which is actually every evening).
Here I show you a version that is a little bit healthier than the classic version, but just as good in taste... no, even better!
What you'll need for about 20 cookies:
- 170g butter
- 2 eggs
- 170ml maple syrup
- 240g whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 100g dark chocolate (chopped)
Start by preheating the oven to 180° Celsius. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy, then add the eggs, one at a time. Slowly add in the maple syrup and beat the mixture until combined. Add the flour and baking soda and beat until fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and put the cookie mixture in the refrigerator to let it harden a little (takes about 30 minutes if you can wait this long...).
Take the bowl out of the fridge and start forming walnut-sized scoops. The bigger the scoops, the bigger the cookies... the greater the pleasure. Bake the cookies on a baking tray covered with baking sheet at 180° celcius for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Bake only as many cookies as you want to eat right away and freeze the rest. I usually place the scoops on a baking tray covered with baking sheet to freeze them in the freezer before I fill them into a more practical zipbag.
Now be ready to enjoy the still warm cookies to the fullest. - Sooooo good !
