Here we go again - I am the best procrasti-baker in the world! My exam is tomorrow (eek!) and here I am, blogging like there's no tomorrow! The dried fruit in the recipe could be replaced with whatever dried fruit you have, just make sure they're chopped into very small pieces. If you can find dried blueberries, however, I highly recommend making these cookies with them!
Ingredients (makes 12 cookies):
- 125g butter, softened
- 3/4 cup rapadura sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 free range egg
- 1 & 1/2 cups light spelt flour
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dried blueberries (I got mine from Wray Organic in Brisbane)
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
2. Beat together the softened butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until combined.
(Thermomix - beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg for 30sec/sp4)
3. Add the flour, cacao powder, baking powder and bicarb soda and continue beating until just combined.
(Thermomix - add the flour, cacao powder, baking powder and bicarb soda and beat 20sec/sp4)
4. Fold the choc chips and dried fruit in and knead with your hands until combined. If you used the Thermomix for the previous steps, tip the cookie dough into a large bowl and proceed with this step as described above.
5. Divide the dough into 12 cookies and place onto the prepared baking trays.
6. Bake for around 10 minutes, then take out of the oven and allow to cool on the trays. I like to eat them while they are still a little warm!
