Wholefood Chocolate Chip Cookie

It’s no secret. I’m a cookie lover.

No cookie lover’s collection of recipes is complete without a chocolate chip cookie, so I had to share with you my ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe. This recipe has a few variations, try them out and see which you prefer. These cookies have received ticks of approval from my husband (win!) and all the mums and kids at playgroup. One little mite (hello Luca!) was going so crazy for them I had to hide the container!

These cookies have just a short list of nourishing, whole food ingredients to which you can add your favourite high-quality chocolate for the chocolate chips (or chunks!)

Lisa's Choc Chip Cookies


  • 1 ¼ cup wholemeal Spelt flour (170g), or wheat, buckwheat or gluten-free flour
  • ½ cup LSA (60g) ground linseeds, sunflower seeds, almonds *
  • ½ tsp bicarb soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • cup maple syrup (70g)**
  • cup macadamia oil (70g)***
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder, vanilla bean paste or seeds of half a vanilla bean
  • 40 g dark chocolate chopped in large chunks. I like Green and Blacks or Lindt – both 85%


  • 1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
  • 2. Add all the ingredients, apart from the chocolate, to a mixer and beat until coming together. (Thermomix – speed 4, 15 seconds)
  • 3. Then add your chocolate chunks and mix through until distributed. (Thermomix – reverse, speed 3, 5 seconds)
  • 4. Place walnut-sized round balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper and flatten gently.
  • 5. Cook for 10-12 minutes
  • 6. Remove from oven and leave to cool (if you can) before eating.


* Instead of LSA you could use almond meal or extra flour
** Instead of maple syrup and macadamia oil you could use raw honey and melted coconut oil.
*** I have also tried this using 120g room temperature butter and 50g rapadura sugar. They were crumblier but totally delicious.
Oh, and a friend said “you know what I love most about these? It's the big chunks of chocolate” so don’t chop it up too fine!
