Hummingbird's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fat, chewy and loaded with chocolate chips. These are what chocolate chip cookies are all about. Perfect for dunking too!

Another fantastic recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. What makes these extra special? The use of brown sugar. It adds a sweetness that beats white sugar any day. Plus I used dark chocolate chips and they really made these pop even more!

I think this is my 3rd tested recipe now from this cookbook and so far, so good. Everything has been incredible. This cookie recipe definitely delivered. With fall fast approaching and kids headed back to school quick breads and cookies are a staple in this house. Chocolate chip cookies are my kids fave and though I have a few great recipes on hand already I figured why not try out another one.

For easy clean up I highly recommend lining your baking sheets with parchment paper. And for ease of measuring, definitely invest in a cookie scoop. I love mine ! If you don't have one though them measure out the cookies one teaspoon at a time.

These don't spread too much but give yourself a good inch space between each cookie. Don't overbake these either so keep a watchful eye on them.

Let's begin!

    I'm happy to see the ingredients listed by gram weight.

  2. Nice twist with the brown sugar and dark chocolate! For some reason milk chocolate does not appeal to me as much as the dark. Your pictures are stunning-thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!
