Wholewheat Chocolate Chip Cookies with Almond Butter
I really had a craving for chocolate chip cookies but I am not a huge sweet tooth so store bought cookies don’t really do it for me. That’s why I decided to make my own and nothing makes baking easier than my trusty KitchenAid stand mixer!
Ok so I have become very attached to my KitchenAid stand mixer. Before I just thought baking was a hassle and who has time for this anyway - but now I'm super motivated to bake and have fun with it!
!! CHECK BELOW THE RECIPE BECAUSE I AM GIVING AWAY ONE OF THESE KITCHENAID STAND MIXERS !!
So the other day I decided to bake some delicious chocolate chip cookies. In order to make them lighter I used wholewheat flour and less chocolate bits (don’t worry you will still have plenty). I also opted to add some extra flavour by mixing in some unsweetened almond butter. It was not too nutty but you still had some subtle flavours coming through and FINALLY I had a choc chip cookie I didn’t feel urgh about after eating it :D
So here goes!
What do you need?
110g unsalted butter, melted
100g light brown sugar
2 tbsp unsweetened almond butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
180g wholewheat flour
150g chocolate chips - you favourite. I always opt for dark.
What do you need to do?
In your mixer bowl, combine the butter and the sugar. Mix until smooth. Add the egg and combine well again. Add the next ingredients step by step while incorporating them fully before adding the next: almond butter, baking soda and salt.
Add the flour little by little, making sure the mixer has enough time to fully mix everything together. Finish my adding your chocolate chips to the mix
Make little balls from your dough and place them on a dish. Cool them in the fridge for 1,5 to 2 hours.
Pre-heat your oven at 180°C. Place the cookie dough balls on a baking sheet on an oven tray about 2 inches apart. flatten them a bit with the palm of your hand and bake them for around 15 minutes.
Once baked, leave them to cool (if you can) and enjoy your delicious cookies!
Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
