Easy and baking are two words I like seeing next to eachother and that’s why I love this cookie recipe. Not fancy, not gourmet but definitely delicious! A great one to try with kids.

You’ll need…

  • 125g butter
  • 1 1/4 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1/4 cup of self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2/3 cup Choc chips, M&Ms, cranberries, or your other “chip of choice”

After that…

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced) and line baking trays with paper.
Beat butter, brown sugar and egg in a small bowl until smooth (use electric beater if you have one)
Sift plain flour, self-raising flour, bicarb and cocoa in a large bowl and add to the other mixture and combine.

Add in your Choc chips and mix

Drop cookie blobs on baking tray with a few cms between each one or you’ll end up with one mega cookie (been there)

Bake for about 10 mins and put on wire rack to cool (and wonder how many will actually last long enough to cool)
