Recipe: My Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are one of my favourite cookies 

Cooking time: 7-10 minutes


  •  2 cups Plain Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/4 cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup Roasted Walnuts cooled 
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter (Room temp)
  • 1 Egg (Room temp)
  • 2 tablespoons Milk 
  • 1 teapsoon Vanilla Extract 
  • 2 cups Good Quality Chocolate (Chopped)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and butter the baking sheets. 
  2. In a standard mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or hand held whisk cream together the butter and sugar on a medium-high speed until light and fluffy. 
  3. Mean while sift the dry ingredients (not the oats) and whisk the wet ingredients together.
  4. Add in the dry & wet ingredients along in halves until everything is combined on a medium speed. 
  5. Once everything's combined fold in the chopped chocolate and rolled oats.
  6. Take the prepared baking trays and scoop or spoon evenly sized mounds leaving an 1inch between each cookie.
  7. Before putting the cookies into the oven gently press the top of each cookie and cook for 7-10 minutes.
  8. Once the cookies come out the oven leave to cool for 5 minutes on the trays before placing onto cooling racks. 
  • If you have any left over cookie dough roll up into a log and wrap in clingfilm tightly. Freeze for 1 month and leave to defrost over night in the fridge or cook for 10-15 minutes  until lightly golden on top. Cutting the dough into circles before cooking.
