Divine Berry, Pine Nut and Chocolate Cookies

15 Sep


These cookies are actually amazing. It’s the only word to describe them that doesn’t cause injustice! They have a wonderful richness from the chocolate but they are them balanced out by the berries and the oats give them a rustic hint so they aren’t too fancy. They are also great because they can be adjusted to your own personal taste, you could change the pine nuts and berries for any number of different options. Such as cherry and hazelnut or macadamia nut and fudge chunks, there are endless options. All I know is that everyone must try these cookies! 😀

Divine Berry, Pine Nut and Chocolate Cookies ( Approx. 20 cookies)

125g butter, softened

110g soft light brown sugar

65g soft dark brown sugar

1 egg

130g plain flour

30g cocoa powder

1/2tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

70g porridge oats

100g dried mixed berries, e.g. blueberries, cranberries etc.

100g pine nuts

100g dark chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 180Âșc/350Âșf and grease two large cookie sheets.
  • Beat the butter and two sugars together until well blended and creamy. ( You don’t have to cream them)Add the egg and beat until combined.
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt on top and, using a wooden spoon, mix until blended in.
  • Add the oats, dried berries, pine nuts and chocolate chips and again mix until blended in.
  • Gather pieces of dough into balls about the size of a golf ball (Embrace the sticky hands… it’s just an excuse to lick them clean!), then flatten slightly and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Place well apart and bake in the oven for 15mins.
  • Allow to cool on the tray then tuck in and enjoy!
