Because sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do. Bake cookies with your sister and call it a day. If you don’t have a sister, a really good gal pal would work too. You just need some tasty ingredients, good sing-a-long music in the background, and it’s bound to be a great afternoon!
I found this recipe on Pinterest. It’s awesome because it’s called, The Ultimate Healthy Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! These cookies have “less butter for chewiness, more vanilla for buttery flavor, brown sugar for moisture, and cornstarch for softness.” I have always loved simple chocolate chip cookies. These were good without the guilt!
My sister, Kirsten, helped with the cookies and we had so much fun!
Original Recipe: Amy’s Healthy Baking
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Cornstarch
1/4 tsp. Salt
6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 Egg Whites, room temperature
1 Tbsp. Milk
4 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Regular Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
2 Tbsp. Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
*Side note, I cooked my cookies 10 minutes like the original recipe said and they were too overdone for my liking. I love cookies to be gooey, right?! It’s taken me almost 4 years to figure out I have a very hot oven, obviously. They will look almost under-done when they’re finished, but I promise they aren’t! Don’t overcook them and ruin all your hard work! Now, go grab you a tall glass of milk and a cookie, or just bring the whole plate.
