Chocolate Chip Cookies

My first memory of cooking these was when I was about 11 years old. I'd eaten the batter long before that though, while helping mama with them. The recipe is from a great book of her's from when she and dad first got married. One that when you hold it just so, falls open to this recipe.

I'm not sure I have ever enjoyed another choc chip cookies as much as I enjoy these. Try them and see if you feel the same...

You will need:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
320g choc chips
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 Tbs milk
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder

Mix the butter and sugar until light and creamy then add the eggs and vanilla and combine well.
Add the chocolate, nuts and seeds, then the flour, milk and baking powder.

Once well combined, spoon onto a lightly greased tray and bake at 180C until golden (about 10-15 minutes).

Lookout, they are very more-ish!
