The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Choc chip cookies really are the ultimate comfort food, aren’t they?

Even better, the whole family love them, fresh out of the oven or as a snack.

However, with a little care, we can indulge ourselves with these delicious cookies while still maintaining a healthy diet.

“Making these with my kids was as much fun as eating them!”


These do have a quite a bit of sugar – but the key thing is not to overindulge. One cookie is not going to destroy your diet. Just ensure the ingredients are fresh, you have some company or family around to make it a special event, and don’t eat too many.

A balanced diet can include a few indulgences, as long as it is not every day.

I’m not sure about licking the mixer attachments or licking the bowl, but it would be a shame to waste them!
