Because we make cookies every Friday night we sure have cookies in the kitchen for the weekend. They don’t really last until Sunday but at least for a day, they last for my husband to munch on. The easiest recipe is the chocolate chip cookies! But sometimes I run out of chocolate chips so I use nuts. They are healthier, better, and just yummier. I don’t know anyone who likes a tough cookie. My teeth aren’t too strong for those hard-to-bite cookies so I always make chewy or gooey cookies. They also cook so much quicker! We love it while it’s warm… then you pour cold milk into a glass and dunk it just the way you would with any chocolate cookie. That’s it. We are done for the night! We then choose a movie to watch and laugh or cry our hearts out. We don’t really go to the cinema because we think it’s a waste of time and money. We usually borrow from the library and watch last year’s release. Cheap? Yes, we are! Haha!
Still warm from the oven…
If I don’t make sweets my husband gives me a hint of something like: “Umm… do you want to go to Lidl?” Or, “do you want something sweet?” “I want to snack something for movie night…” I already know what that means. Altha! you forgot to make him his Friday night treat! With all my heart I immediately bake cookies for him or sometimes pancakes drizzled with honey topped with fruits or ice cream because he is so easy to feed, really. My husband wouldn’t take anything from anyone. He eats only what I give him unless we decided to dine outside. Also, because of that, it is not an option for me not to cook. If you’ve seen my Instagram page, I sometimes promise to make something and post it. Then, I would end up posting something else which means my husband wanted to eat something else. Now, that baby Sofia is on the way, I would have two customers waiting to be fed at the table. I think it’s going to be really fun! I don’t mind. They are the light of my world.
The batter is stiff but manageable…
Just done baking. Still super soft… Let it settle for 30minutes. If rushing to eat bake 5 minutes more…
- Why mix gluten-free and regular flour? Because if you use only regular flour the cookies will be thicker than this. Half gluten-free and half regular all-purpose flour yields just the right thickness of cookies and that store-bought choco-chip texture.
- What will happen if I use only Gluten-free flour? The cookie dough will be very thin. The gluten gives the cookie its body. 😉 Like this one: Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
After 30 minutes when it dries and stabilizes… Still soft but ready for eating…
1 cup gluten-free flour (preferably organic)
1 cup all-purpose flour (preferably organic)
3/4 cup organic brown cane sugar (heavily packed or white cane sugar)
1 cup organic coconut sugar (if you don’t like coconut sugar: 1/2 cup coconut sugar & 1.25 cups of sugar)
1 1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp pink salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup butter/ virgin coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Grease the baking pan with oil or use a parchment paper
- Melt butter over medium-high heat for a minute or until completely melted but not boiling. You may also use low fire
- Mix together flour, baking soda, and Himalayan salt using a sifter or a spatula. Set aside
- Prepare your mixing bowl. Plug in your handheld/stand mixer and set to medium speed (3-4 speed). Cream melted butter, coconut sugar and cane sugar until fully incorporated and somewhat creamy
- Slowly, beat in the vanilla, the egg, and the egg yolk until creamy and a bit fluffy
- Mix in the sifted flour, salt, and baking soda into the mixture until it’s just blended
- Stir in walnuts by hand using a wooden spoon or a silicone spatula. It will be a stiff mixture
- Use a spoon to scoop up 1 heaping tablespoon of the cookie dough and place onto the baking sheets/pan. Give each dough at least 4-inch space apart for a nice circular cookie shape.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes. Check it for the first 10 minutes. Let it cool for 30 minutes but best to leave it overnight. Serve with warm or cold milk and enjoy!
If you plan to eat the cookies immediately right after baking, bake it for 15-18 minutes otherwise you can leave it overnight which will give you a cookie that doesn’t fall apart when dunking in a glass of warm or cold milk. Yumminess!
