Choc Chip Cookies

Whilst these cookies are not the healthiest of snack, they taste absolutely fantastic - crunchy around the edge and gooey and 'chocolatey' in the centre.... so, what's not to love?


200g butter, softened
200g soft brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
340g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
220g dark chocolate, chopped into small chunks
150g walnuts, toasted and chopped

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celcius.
  • Line two baking trays with baking paper.  
  • Beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time.  Beat until well combined.  Add in vanilla extract.
  • Fold in sifted flour, baking powder and baking soda. Then, gently mix in chocolate chunks and nuts and stir until well combined.
  • Take tablespoons of the dough and roll into balls. Place them onto the baking tray, making sure you leave enough space in between to allow the cookies to spread.
  • Bake for about 11 - 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden but still very soft (they will firm up upon cooling). 
  • Cool the cookies on the tray for about 3 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container.

These are best eaten when they are warm out of the oven.
If you want cookies to be crunchy, extend the baking time.


  1. Hi, meelan's daughter, Joyce here. Does it have to have walnuts?:o

    1. Hi Joyce, firstly thanks for visiting my humble blog. In answering to your question, it doesn't have to be walnuts. You can put almond, peanuts or any nuts of your choice. Or you can even leave out the nuts.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I always love reading your thoughts and comments!
