Healthy-ish choc chip (and sultana) cookies

After making these for years, they are probably the family's favourite lunch box sweet and always a must have for a party. The recipe is so easy and makes approx 40 biscuits so there is plenty to go around.


1/3 cup raw sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

125 grams of unsalted butter (softened)

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

2 large eggs, slightly beaten

3 cups of unbleached flour

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1-2 cups of dark chocolate bits/chunks

3 tablespoons of almond (or regular) milk

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Handful of sultanas (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla until lightly blended.
  3. Combine dry ingredients and gradually add to butter mixture.
  4. Add milk and mix.
  5. Stir in choc chips (we usually purchase melts and cut into chunks) and sultanas.
  6. Roll into balls and slightly press with a fork.
  7. Cook for approx 12-15 minutes or until golden.
