You know when you just want one (maybe two) chocolate chip cookie but do not want to go through all the trouble of making an entire batch. Well, this recipe is just for you.
This recipe will give you a warm, giant chocolate chip cookie that is crispy on the edges and soft/doughy in the middle. SO. GOOD. It is so easy to put together and takes about 15-18 minutes in the oven.
I do always love making a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but I am usually the only one that will eat them in my apartment and hate throwing them away once they have become stale. I will try to give them away or freeze them for later on, but sometimes its just not the same as a freshly baked one!
To give you an idea of the size it is probably the size of your palm and dense! You can flatten it out using the back of a spatula (I did not for this photo here) which will give you a bigger and flatter cookie. In the photo above I rolled it into a ball, slightly flattened it and then baked it. This gave me a dense, dough like cookie! So really it just depends on your preference!
This recipe is completely dairy free and gluten free! I did not try any other subs for flours or a chia egg. So I am not entire sure if it will work. If you try it out, let me know!
