Anyone can buy perfectly decent cookies, but nothing makes a chocoholic surrender like my homemade organic gooey chocolate cookies. 

Recipe makes about 16 • Preheat oven to 180˚ C/350˚ F/ Gas Mark 4 • Vegetarian/Halal

Ingredients:
  • 115g / 4 oz unsalted softened butter (leave it out to soften)
  • 250g / 9 oz light brown sugar
  • 1 large-ish egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (the real thing, no rubbish flavourings)
  • 275g / 9.5 oz plain flour
  • 15 g / 1/2 oz fair trade cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200 g / 7 oz organic plain chocolate (chips/chopped)
  • 150 g / 5.5 oz organic milk chocolate (chips/chopped)

Method:

You'll need a handheld whisk, 2 bowls, a wooden spoon, an ice-cream scoop (it's helpful), baking trays and parchment (greaseproof paper).

First up...
1. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl together until it's light and fluffy. The 'crunchy' sound will reduce due to the sugar dissolving.

2. In another bowl measure out the dry ingredients; flour, cocoa, bicarb and salt. Invest in digital scales, they're fantastic.

3. Sieve the flour, cocoa, bicarb and salt into the butter-sugar mixture. This adds 'air' and removes any clumps. Even though we're making cookies, the mixture needs to remain light to create crunchier melt-in-your-mouth cookies.


3. Use a wooden spoon to mix '8' shapes in the mixture until everything is combined. Turn the mixture over and flatten the mixture together till it's smoother. Cocoa and brown sugar adds the colour.

4. Chop up the organic chocolate and add 100g only or add 100g of organic plain chocolate chips to the mixture. 

The darker the chocolate, meaning, the higher the cocoa content (60% +) the better the quality and taste. I used chopped plain and milk chocolate chunks for a contrast. The remainder of the chopped chocolate is used in the next step.

5. Using an ice-cream scoop or large dessert spoon, scoop out 6 medium sized balls of mixture and place onto a baking sheet (with parchment) well apart. Use the back of a spoon to round off and flatter the cookies to about 1cm thick. They will spread out a little in the oven. Here you add the rest of the chopped chocolate by lightly pressing into the tops.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15mins approximately, checking with a wooden skewer (toothpick) - poke it in the middle of a cookie, if it comes out clean, they're done. The chocolate chunks melt and ooze out, a good sign!

Mine. With a large eco-muslim sized bite.

Happy halal eatin'. Peace and wholesome jihad.

  3. Heyy! These are great, thanks for sharing! One thing, the method doesn't mention anything about the egg or vanilla - add it after the creaming the butter and sugar. Also I had to use 2 eggs, my mixture wouldn't bind with one.


    Flattening the cookie dough is easiest if you use a wet spoon to do so :)
