Chocolate Chip Cookies, V3
So I love my old chocolate chip cookie recipe that I developed, but I had some dietary changes. This recipe is in progress and attempted to eliminate added/non-natural sugars as well as some experimentation with flour types.
- This recipe was designed and baked at an elevation of ~6,900 feet.
- Rub coconut oil on the inside of measuring cup before filling it with honey, it makes it a little easier to empty cleanly
- I’ve been playing with the flour mixture, currently about 50% white and 50% whole wheat.
- If you do this, I think there needs to be about a tablespoon of coconut oil or coconut butter to prevent the cookies from seeming dry.
- 2¾ cup flour (430 g)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks, ~65°F)
- ⅔ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ct
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups Hu No Sugar added keto baking chocolate chips (these are sweetened with dates)
- Combine flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl.
- Beat butter, honey, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl. It doesn’t quite cream in the same way a traditional sugar/butter mixture does, but there’s some similarities. It should take a while and it should get lighter, smoother, and more homogenous, although not quite as homogeneous as butter/sugar.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
- Gently beat in flour mixture on low speed, occasionally clearing the edges of the bowl. Be carful not to compress the egg mixture too much.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Form dough into balls 1” in diameter and drop onto ungreased baking sheet 2” apart. Don’t press the dough balls flat, unless you want really flat cookies.
- Bake for ~9 minutes. Cookies should look just barely dry and begin cracking on sides. They should be just barely set when poked gently with a finger r and there should be minimal visible browning on edges of cookies.
- Remove cookies from oven, immediately place on cooling rack.
Eat when it feels right. Fully baked cookies can be saved in a container for up to a week.
