Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tomorrow is cake sale day at my son’s school. I asked what he wanted to bring and he said he wanted cookies. A quick google search later and I found this recipe on BBC Goodfoods. I had all the ingredients in the press so I gave it a whirl. They are dairy-free egg-free, soy-free  and nut-free.


100g dairy free dark chocolate

170g self-raising flour

100g soft margarine (I used pure sunflower)

85g golden caster sugar

2 tbsp golden syrup

2 tsp dairy free milk (I used oat milk)


Preheat the oven to 170C / fan oven 160C

Cream the margarine and sugar together.

Add the golden syrup and mix well.

Fold in the flour slowly.

Break up the chocolate if you using a bar, my 5 year old loved bashing the bar with a rolling pin before opening it. If you are lucky enough to find dairy free chocolate chips, use these.

Mix in the milk and the chocolate chips/chunks.

Place teaspoonfuls on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Shape into rounds by hand.

[On the first two trays I didn’t shape the cookies, and they didn’t turn out very presentable to send into the school but I gently shaped the second lot with my fingers, these looked much more cookie-like]

Bake in the centre shelf of the oven for 10 minutes. They are quite soft cookies so allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack.
