Chocolate Chunk Cookies my teenage daughter made these gooey chocolatey treats and changed out some of the ingredients for healthier options, well as healthy as they can be!
My youngest daughter Jamie is 15 and she is obsessed with:
- You tubers
not in that order.
It was actually a you tuber by the name of Tanya Burr she is actually a Vlogger yes that’s not a typo its a cross between doing a blog and videos. Tanya has a book called Love Tanya its a really good book, today is the first time I’ve had a really good look at it and I’m impressed it covers
- confidence and happiness
plus more, its quite inspirational.
This is where Jamie got the recipe from and adapted it. Its not something I eat but at least its made from scratch she know what goes into it and has swapped out some of the ingredients for healthier ones.
I tried half of one because they looked really good plus Jamie made them, I want to encourage her to cook so I thought it was only right that I try some and they were really good.
How can you make these healthier you ask? Good question here are some of the healthier ingredients used instead.
- organic self raising flour
- grass fed organic butter
- organic full cream milk
- pasture raised eggs
- Natvia stevia sweetener
- Cadbury top deck chocolate (just kidding) I wish it was!!
Apart from the flour and chocolate these aren’t too bad on occasion. You could also make a gluten free version by using a premixed GF SR flour mixture.
About once a month Jamie will be contributing to this website. If you make them or one of your kids do let us know how they turn out in the comments below, would love to hear from you.
Here is the recipe below for Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Thanks for reading 🙂

- Break up chocolate and add to mixture
- Line two trays with baking paper
- Separate mixture into 10 cookies (they are big) and put onto trays.

replace flour with Gluten Free SR Flour
Use 1 100gm pkt of 80% dark chocolate or cacao nibs (about 3 TBS) instead of top deck chocolate .
If you adjust by using these ingredients it will be a sugar free recipe.
