Within the food world, there are endless experiments happening. Some newer examples of this are glitter lattes (questionable), colored Korean dumplings, and charcoal ice cream, to name a few. It makes sense, since as humans, creating is part of our nature.
We can't say we fall behind the world of curiosity. So, that's why we've decided to fuse together fruit with flour to make strawberry chocolate chip cookies.
The thought of strawberries with chocolate arises images of Valentine's Day, fancy desserts, and more. We figured it would be great to shape those images into an everyday treat. Bringing together the classic chocolate chip cookie, and mashing it up with strawberries to create a small, tangy indulgence.
Forewarning: There is a chance you'll continue to eat these all night. Do yourself a favor, and seal them up in the fridge, or give them to a friend, or feed them to your S.O. or throw them out of your house...
Here's the recipe.
What You'll Need
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 Tablespoons butter, softened (use unsalted)
½ cup granulated sugar (or healthier: Organic Coconut Flour, 16 oz (454 g) Bag )
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
½ cup fresh strawberries, chopped
1 cup milk chocolate chips
