I’ve been feeling a little ho-hum about my cookie options lately, you could say I’ve been in a “cookie rut”. So I decided to mix things up a little with these Malted Milo Cookies. I love crunchy cookies that have too much flavour!
With those factors in mind I’ve created these double chocolate cookies. The first chocolate flavour comes from our famous Aussie icon, Nestle Milo. The second level of chocolate is introduced in the form of dark chocolate chips. I’ve also used Nestle Malt powder to intensify the maltiness of these cookies. Finally the top of the flattened cookie is pressed into more delicious milo powder.
So we are talking about milo on milo with choice bits! With all this deliciousness in a cookie there is no reason to fiddle with icings, or additional toppings. So these are a fuss free cookie, perfect for school or work lunch boxes.
With this in mind I give you the Malted Milo Cookie! A cookie that every Aussie kids will love! Serve it with a milo milk for strong healthy bones. If you don’t have malt powder you can just add a little more milo powder but I do recommend try the cookies with the extra kick of malt. They are out of this world!
I’ve given these cookies as a Thermomix recipe, but if you don’t have a Thermomix simply do the regular cookie routine. Just cream butter and sugar add and egg then mix through the chocolate chips and flour.
Remember the cookies will be extremely soft when they come out of the oven. However once cooled they become deliciously crisp.
