I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Giant Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lots of chocolate, with a little coffee and a pinch of salt for the ultimate sweet and salty treat!
1  1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oat flour (use oats in food processor)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps instant coffee granules
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsps vanilla
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup broken chocolate bar or more chips
salt to top cookies (optional)

So, if you don't have oat flour just take 1/2 cup of oats and whirl it in a food processor. Then combine the white flour, oat flour, baking soda, salt and coffee.
In a large bowl mix the melted butter, brown and white sugars, vanilla and egg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, then fold in the chocolate chips. I used some large bittersweet chips and a bunch of mini semi-sweet chips.

Take a 1/4 cup scoop to measure out the cookie dough onto lined baking sheets. Leave a good 2" between each cookie and do not press down. I used 3 cookie sheets. Break your chocolate bar in pieces. I used this Dark Chocolate with Coffee Crunch bar from Ikea for an extra punch of coffee!

Stick some chocolate bar chunks into each ball of cookie dough and if you want sprinkle some salt. Usually this calls for flaked sea salt, but I use Himalayan pink salt for the job. Salt really enhances the chocolate.
Bake at 325°F for 16-18 minutes

Leave them on the cookie sheet a few minutes then remove to cool on a rack a few more minutes (if you can wait that long!)
Makes 15 hand-sized cookies.
