We’ve got a new sugary treat for you. Nothing tastes quite as satisfying and delicious as a fresh oven baked cookie when you’re having a sweet tooth craving. In this post, we’ll be putting a unique spin on a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe by adding some nutritious sea vegetables. We substituted salt in this recipe for our Organic Sugar Kelp Flakes since our seaweeds have natural salt from the ocean. These cookies have a great depth of flavor that’s sweet, chocolatey, slightly salty from the kelp, with a hint of cinnamon. The whole family will love them - they get devoured at our house in no time.
These chocolate chip and kelp cookies will have great form and be slightly gooey in the middle when fresh out of the oven.
Hot tip: If you'd like to make a chocolate chip and seaweed cookie that isn’t so sweet, or slightly healthier, try adding raisins, chopped dried fruit, or nuts instead of chocolate chips.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 30-40 medium large cookies
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp Organic Sugar Kelp Flakes
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp of baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large duck or chicken egg
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder until well combined.
In a large bowl, beat together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Gradually stir in the flour mixture until just combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips and Organic Sugar Kelp Flakes.
Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. To store cookies, place in an airtight container with 1 piece of bread to keep cookies moist.
Happy baking, enjoy.
