Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Heidi came over the day with some of these delicious cookies. She and her daughter Maude (Esme’s BFF) had made them together. Heidi said it was a really easy recipe to do with a kid as there are so few steps. We had a couple with coffee and the remaining three were meant for my husband Ben and Esme to have. Um, yeah, that didn’t happen.

So. Tomorrow Heidi and her daughter Maude are coming over and we’re going to the park for a picnic lunch. Esme and I made another batch this afternoon to take on our picnic. Heidi was right – it was super easy. The only tricky part was getting Esme to stop eating the dough. I couldn’t blame her, though, it was amazing.

It’s a very standard cookie recipe but it’s made extra fabulous and quite a bit healthier by the addition of a cup of Muesli by Bob’s Red Mill. Do you know that line? Very good organic flours, oats, wheat germs, etc. You could easily substitute another Muesli or granola.

    Love this recipe, made it twice already. Muesli was a bit too expensive, so I used granola instead. First time I baked them according to instructions. Second time I wanted them softer, so I made tbsp sized portions and baked for less time.
