Way Chocolate Chip Cookies

How much chocolate can you get into one chocolate chip cookie? Probably more than this, but it was still a lot. :)

Stacey's Way Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients:

1c + 2 tbs sugar, organic
1 1/4c brown sugar, organic
2 sticks (1c) butter, halfway melted
2 oz coconut oil, organic
1 tbs vanilla bean paste
2 eggs, organic
2c white flour, unbleached, organic
1.5c whole wheat flour, organic
1/4c cornstarch
1/3c unsweetened Scharffen Berger cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1c semisweet chocolate chips, Guittard
1c milk chocolate chips, Guittard
1c white chocolate chips, Trader Joe's

First, I preheated the oven to 350F. Then I microwaved the butter and coconut oil until the butter was partially melted.  I added the butter and oil to the sugars and then added the vanilla bean paste in my standing mixer.

I turned the mixer on at medium speed until it was combined.  Then I added the eggs and beat it until it was fluffy.

I put all the dry ingredients in the bowl and then put all the chocolate chips on top. I mixed on the "stir" setting in pulses (if you let it go, flour will fly everywhere).  Once just combined, I made 1 3/4" balls of dough and put them on my favorite cookie sheets (these aren't exactly the ones I have, but they're close and still by Wilton) 1.5-2" apart.

I put them into the oven, usually one sheet at a time, on the rack that's just one notch higher than the middle.  I put them in for 10 minutes, rotating 180 degrees at the halfway point, and then removed them from the oven.  Using my temperature gun, I checked the surface of the cookies to make sure they were around 200F.  Then I let them cool on the cookie sheets for another 10 minutes before removing them with a spatula.  The cookie sheets, surface temperature, and letting the cookies cool on the sheets are the keys to cookies that are soft in the middle.
Yummy, yummy, yummy...


  1. You're inspiring me to BAKE anything at this point! Looks delish! :o)


  2. Yay! We can make whatever you want when we get together for a craft day. :)

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

Chocolate Banana Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting

I made these for a potluck. Three people asked me for the recipe. Now you can be part of the three!  Ingredients: 3 large ripe bananas, mashed 3 tbs butter 3 tbs oil 2 eggs 1/3 c buttermilk 1 tsp vanilla 3/4 c sugar 1/2 tsp salt 2 c flour 3/4 c baking soda 1/2 c cocoa powder 2 tbs butter 1/2 c milk chocolate chips (but you can use any kind) Chocolate dipped banana chips and decorating sugar (optional) Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all the first set of ingredients together (all the wet + sugar and salt). Mix in the flour and baking soda. Split the batter in half and add the cocoa powder, 2 tbs butter, and chocolate chips to 1 half. You might have to use a mixer because the cocoa powder gets clumpy. Fill muffin cups with half of each kind of batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Makes about 18 muffins. Cream cheese frosting ingredients: 1 – 8oz pkg cream cheese 5 tbs butter 1 tbs sour cream 1 tsp vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste) 1 c p

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

My son (currently 2 years old) loves pancakes.  Protein, not so much.  I tried to get a bit more protein in his carbs. Ingredients  (organic, if possible) 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 eggs 1 cup cottage cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tbs milk butter, oil or oil spray Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and then fold into dry ingredients mixing as little as possible (keeps the pancakes tender). Heat a pan and grease with butter. My son likes small pancakes (so I use about 1-2 teaspoons at a time), but you can make full size pancakes if you wish. It usually takes a minute or two before you can turn them over, or you can look for small bubbles at the edges of the pancakes before flipping. Remove when golden brown. If you want to substitute white flour, you'll have to add more flour (maybe 3-4 extra tablespoons) unless you like thin pancakes. Also, I usually make a big batch o
