Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and Melt ReviewThick and Chewy Chocolate Chip

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

In case you have not heard of Melt before this is what it is; Melt is a butter substitute that is a rich source of medium chain fatty acids (the “good” fats) that your body burns as energy instead of storing as fat, thereby boosting metabolism.  Each organic ingredient in Melt has been carefully chosen so that Melt tastes delicious and supports healthy weight when replacing other fats in your daily diet.  It’s also organic, gluten-free, cholesterol free, carb free, soy free, trans fat free and certified kosher.

Melt contains virgin coconut oil, flax seed oil, palm fruit oil, and canola oil — all healthy cooking oils and “good fats.” Typical buttery spreads are made of hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, which have been linked to obesity, heart disease, etc. Melt also has 50% of the saturated fat and fewer calories than butter. Be sure to check out Melt’s website for more facts, great recipes, and to find out where you can purchase Melt.

A perfect opportunity presented itself to use Melt when my parents came to visit.  My Dad is a sucker for Chocolate Chip Cookies.  We have been making the same recipe since I was a very small child.  I wanted to branch out and try something new.  I had my eye on this recipe by Annie’s Eats. What better time to give it a try.  I have since tried this with regular butter as well.  I can honestly say, I prefer the ones made with Melt.  I think they were softer and chewier for longer, and they seemed to bake up better for me.  And the true tester, my Dad, thought they were great!  This will be the true test if he actually reads my blog 🙂  I am sure I will hear about trying to trick him!

Printable Recipe

2 cups plus 2 Tbls flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
12 Tbls Melt, melted and cooled until warm
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1  egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven 325°.

Combine dry ingredients together; set aside.  Mix butter and sugars until combined.  Beat in the egg, yolk, and vanilla until combined.  Add dry ingredients and beat until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Roll about ½ cup of dough into a ball.  Holding dough ball in fingertips of both hands, pull apart into two equal halves.  Rotate halves 90 degrees and, with jagged surfaces facing up, place formed dough onto cookie sheet, leaving ample room between each ball.  Bake until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy (approximately 11-14 minutes).  Do not overbake.

Cool cookies on sheets for a few minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy this Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Recipe.
