I’m Supposed To Be Dieting…

Today I really felt like baking so guess what? I DID!

I’ve been really craving chocolate chip cookies but we had no butter I could cook with.

So, I Googled cookie recipes without butter to see how I could go about making some and I found an American recipe.

I don’t mind American recipes but you have to faff about converting cups to grams and so-forth.

But I did it all anyway and here it is:


225g of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
175g sugar (can be granulated or caster)
120ml vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of honey or golden syrup
as many chocolate chips as you like!


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in a bowl and set to the side.

In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, oil, egg and honey/golden syrup.

Add the flour mix into the sugar mix bit by bit until it’s all incorporated.

Add the chocolate chips and give it a good stir.

Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough and then roll it between our hands into a ball, press onto sheet with your fingers slightly.

Repeat over and over until all the dough is gone.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until they start to look golden on the top.

Take out when they’re done and voila, beautiful soft choc chip cookies!

I made about 10 cookies and they were absolutely delicious!
