Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)

Ahhh… Right now I have a break from school. One week of doing anything you want – wonderful!

I’ve been so busy the last couple of months, but this break I’m going to do nothing. No traveling, so big events and no (well, at least not so many) homeworks. Usually I really love being busy but from time to time I think it is important to do nothing.
And then again… I’m not good at doing nothing, so this week is dedicated to cooking, crafting, friends, running, photography and reading – and a lot of tea. Oooh, it’s gonna be great.
I have some friends coming over in half an hour but I thought I just had time for making a small blog post :-) – including a recipe in healthi-fied chocolate chip cookies.
Saturday, after a little ballet lesson, my mom, brother and I went for a little trip to Copenhagen (we live just 20 minutes from the center, so I go there quite often). Last year a marked called Torvehallerne (it means “The Market Halls”) opened in the center of Copenhagen. Despite my big interest of food, I hadn’t been there yet. So saturday my mom took my brother and I there. It was great! Well I love every food market but this really was great. You could get all the world’s delicacies. We bought some very delicious syrups and ate lunch at a small fish booth – and then we brought some cinnamon rolls home. Yummy!
I wish we had more of those markets in Denmark. If you ever go to Copenhagen (which I think really is worth a visit) make sure to visit Torvehallerne. They are very nice.
But well, now to the recipe. Friday I made these lovely cookies for my brother and I. I didn’t want to make the completely healthy since my brother just like things their usual way. Not that he doesn’t like healthy things – he definitely does. But what I didn’t told him was that these actually are lightened up a bit. They turned out great! Enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 12 cookies

  • 100 g. flour of choice – I used a mix of spelt and wheat but you could use almost any kind
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • Chocolatechips (amound depends on your taste – I used around 1/3 cup)
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • A tiny bit of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. melted coconutoil or margarine
  • About 5 tbsp. milk of choice (use almond or soy etc. for a vegan version) 
How to do

Preheat oven to 200°C/ 390°F Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the vanilla and coconut oil/ margarine. Mix well. Add the milk as needed one tbsp a time. You might need a bit more than 5 tbsp.
Shape the cookies. These cookies doesn’t change their shape as usual cookies so make sure to make then the size and shape you want them.
Bake for about 6 minutes. They’ll get harder when they cool so take them out of the oven when they are still not completely done.
These cookies are nicest when they are warm – enjoy!

    Hi! How much baking soda should we use? These look like a great alternative to regular cookies!

    Could you use coconut sugar instead of sugar in these? Or would I need to change the amounts to do this?

    Your blog is amazing. I made your avocado cookies and they were superb!
