BAKED: Chocolate and Hazelnut Chunky Cookies


After posting this on Instagram earlier this week, I've had a fair amount of people asking me to get this post up ASAP - so, here you go cookie-lovers - this one's for you!

I always try and experiment with different cookie recipes so here's a few others, if you want to make your friends, family and work colleagues very happy with a new weekly batch of cookies -

Okay...so that's a few more than I thought I'd actually posted on here but yeah, I'm a biiiig cookie fan!

These beauties, well, they're up there now with my go-to Oatmeal and Raisin. Just sayin'! 

I got this recipe from The Londoner - she knows her sweet treats! Mine don't look quite the same but, honestly, the taste is out of this world. Next time I'm contemplating a drizzle of Nutella in there to add more gooey-ness to the melted chocolate.



All you need for 12 big cookies:
250g Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
200g Brown Sugar
170g Unsalted Butter, Melted
100g Granulated Sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Egg and 1 Egg Yolk
250g Galaxy Chocolate, Chopped
100g Hazelnuts, Chopped


1. Preheat your oven to 170 (fan)

2. In a bowl, mix together your flour, bicarb and salt

3. In a separate bowl, mix together your sugars and butter

4. Mix in your eggs and vanilla - I can't lie, the mix looks...interesting..

5. Pour this runny mix into the dry mix and combine the ingredients together thoroughly - either with your wooden spoon or in a food processor. I always do it the old fashioned way!

6. The mix will come together in a sticky dough - mix in your nuts and chocolate - knead it together so it's all evenly mixed.

7. Line a baking tray with parchement and grab a ball of cookie dough, flattening it slightly.

8. Repeat, placing all of them on the tray as you go along - you may need to do two batches so they have plenty of room to spread out (I did mine in one, hence the shape!)

9. Allow 10-12 minutes cooking time - the edges should go a nice golden colour when they're done!

10. When they're done, remove from the paper and leave on a wire rack to cool down. I know it's really tempting to just eat them warm from the oven...I won't tell if you don't!
