Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

I know there are a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipes here on zaar already but this is different. :) These cookies are puffy and crunchy rather than flat and gooey. They are only lightly sweet and can be varied easily. Think of adding in chopped nuts, oats, coconut flakes etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a big bowl cream butter until frothy.
  2. Add in sugar and vanilla while beating continously.
  3. Add honey and egg. Mix well.
  4. In another bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture little by little as to prevent excessive dusting.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips and work into a smooth dough.
  6. Using your hands take little portions of dough, roll them into balls (approx. the size of a walnut), place on a paper-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350F for 15-20 minutes.

It's always nice to have a cookie that's a bit different from the usual, & this one definitely is that, & delightfully so, too! Wonderfully tasty & a great chocolate fix for this 'holic! Will be making these again several times before the end of the year, I know! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These are little mounds of greatness! I love how they remain puffed up and have a softer center but a crispy outside! I really liked using the bit of honey in these and did use a local wildflower honey. These made 16 perfect cookies which I then used to make Recipe #318131. These were perfect for that as they did not crumble while building the s'mores. I'll be using this recipe often for lunches as they will not be crumbly by the time the kids have lunch at school. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
