chocolate chip cookies



These are the first batch without rolled oats


The one on the left are with rolled oats and shaped into smaller cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Back in the Day Bakery)
Adapted from Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids
Make 30 medium size cookies
1 1/4 cups (185g) unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder (original was baking soda) I used 1/2 tsp baking soda and
1/4 tsp Clabber Girl Double Acting Baking Powder
3/4 tsp fine salt (omitted)
125g unsalted butter, soften at room temperature – I used salted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract (I used 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar
1/2 cup packed (100g) light brown sugar – I used only 50g
1 large egg, at room temperature
50g lightly toasted almond meal (ground almond)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks (I used Callebaut dark chocolate callets with 54.5% cocoa)

fleur de sel for sprinkling (omitted)


Position two baking racks in the lower middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C. (I preheat my oven to 160C). Line two baking tray with baking paper.

Combine flour, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda and fine salt; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large mixing bowl, using a handheld mixer), cream butter, vanilla, and both sugars on medium speed until creamy and smooth. Takes about 3 to 5 mins.

Add the egg and whisk about 1 min just to roughly mix in then reduce the speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture in 3 portions, until just combined (takes about 1 – 2 mins).  Finally pour in the chocolate chips and oats and mix on low speed until just combined.

Use a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon to scoop about 2 tablespoonful of dough and place on the prepared baking trays, leaving 2 inches (5 cm) between as the dough will spread.

Bake the cookies, for 12-14 mins in total, switch the trays position if baking two trays at once and also rotating the tray in every 3 mins until done.  This is to ensure cookies are evenly cooked.  Leave the cookies to cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack until completely cool.

Serve and enjoy or store the cookies in an airtight container.


Eat it on it’s own for a chocolatey treat….or….


dunk into cold milk …. tasted equally good!


Leave plenty of space in between as these cookies spread a lot!

  4. Hi Jeannie,

    Happy to have you baking along with us!

    Interesting to know the addition of rolled oats is making the cookies expanding lesser during baking!

    Hope that you enjoyed these cookies.
