And these choc chip cookies are just that!
These gorgeously golden oat, coconut and chocolate studded cookies come together in one bowl and in less than 15 minutes.
PLUS there’s tonnes of kitchen fun for your little one to have. From measuring the flour, cracking the egg and stirring together the dough. Your child will be non stop smiles.
And did we mention these cookies are deelishhhhh!
Oh my goodness – the pockets of deep dark molten melted chocolate nestled amongst the maple sweetened & cinnamon scented cookie crumb are sublime.
My little Harry is a little obsessed, as you can see…
Find your step-by-step recipe below lovely and get cooking with your kids! Happy baking…
Begin by preheating your oven to 160 degrees celsius (325 F) and line an oven tray with baking paper.
Set your kids up at the kitchen bench safely (my little ones are confident standing on stools but when they were smaller I would set up a kids sized table in the middle of the kitchen for them to work at) in front of a wooden board.
Together measure the brown sugar and wholemeal flour and add to the bowl.
Together measure the rolled oats and add to the bowl.
Measure and add the coconut.
Measure and add the ground cinnamon.
Measure and add the baking powder & bicarb of soda.
Arm your little ones with a wooden spoon or spatula and ask them to stir the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
Now it’s time to crack the egg. Ask your little one to gently tap the egg on the side of the bowl until they hear a crack. Once cracked ask your child to open the egg ‘like a book’ so the egg falls into the bowl. Use a wet finger or piece of shell to fish out any pieces of egg shell that may have fallen in too.
Next, measure and add the cooled melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Ask your child to stir until all of the ingredients are combined.
Next, chop the chocolate into little pieces. I decided to chop the chocolate myself as Grace and Harry were too busy trying to eat it!
Add the chocolate to the cookie dough and give it a good stir to combine.
Take heaped teaspoons of the choc chip cookie mixture and roll into balls. This is the task kids love most – its super fun and super messy! Pop the cookies onto your prepared tray approx. 2 centimetres apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden and set. Watch your little ones face light up with pride as they see the choc chip cookies they made emerge from the oven.
For a little treat, pop a choc chip cookie and some fresh berries onto a plate for a lovely little morning tea.
