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, baking powder 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 together butter, vanilla, and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 mins.

Add the egg and mix for no more than 1 min; the eggs will not be fully incorporated. Turn the speed down to low or use a spoon to mix and sift in the dry ingredients in thirds, mixing until just combined, 1 to 2 mins. With the mixer running in low speed or mix with a spoon, sprinkle in the chocolate chips or chunks, mix until just combined, about 1 min.

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 the divided dough to allow room for spreading.

Bake the cookies, both baking trays at a time, for 12-14 mins in total, swapping the tray position and also rotating the tray in every 3 mins to sure even doneness. The cookies should be golden brown around the edges but still light in the centers. Cool the cookies slightly on the tray for about 5-10 mins, then transfer the cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve and enjoy or store the cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature.

  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.
