Recipe | Cookies

Now that the weather in Brussels is quickly going back to the usual gloomy sky, I’ve found myself wanting to bake and cook a lot more again. I love chocolate chip cookies but can’t seem to like the processed ones, that always have a ton of weird ingredients and are way too sweet and greasy for my taste.

Here is a recipe I have done a gazillion times that I absolutely love!



200g of brown sugar

100g of butter

170g of dark chocolate

220g of flour

1 egg

1 tbs of vanilla extract (can be replaced by vanilla sugar)

1/2 tbs of baking powder


1. Make chunks out of the dark chocolate, I use Côte d’Or baking chocolate, you can alternatively buy chocolate chunks.

2. Mix the butter to make it softer. If you have a Kitchenaid you can use it, if not just mix it with a flexible plastic spatula like I did.

3. Add the brown sugar and mix.

4. Add the egg and vanilla extract.

5. Add the flour mixed to the baking powder progressively.

6. Finish off by adding the chocolate chunks (I tend to mix them by hand to make sure there is chocolate everywhere). Try to form a large ball with the cookie dough.

7. Cover the bowl with plastic film. To make sure the dough is well protected I suggest you put the plastic film directly on the dough. Leave it in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.

Preheat your oven at 170C (Convection).

8. Make dough scoops and put them on a baking tray covered in parchment paper. (I end up with around 20 cookies and use two trays).

9. Leave in the oven for around 10 minutes.

10. Let them cool down before putting them on a plate.

11. Eat them with a nice latte watching your favourite show or reading your favourite blogs.

Have a lovely weekend!
