Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

What is malt powder?

Malted milk powder (or malt powder) is a powder that is made up of malted barley and milk powder. This powder can be added to drinks and foods. It's most commonly known for in milkshakes like chocolate and vanilla, turning them into malted milkshakes. This creates a creamy, lightly sweetened powder that nothing else can mimic!

So, if you are a fan of malted milkshakes then you are going to love these Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies! I grew up getting chocolate malts with my dad often, it was one of our special things we did together. We even made them at home in the summertime! So, for me, this flavor is incredibly nostalgic.

These Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, chewy, creamy, light and oh so delicious! Dunk them in milk or eat them plain, either way you do it, these cookies will taste nostalgic for you if you're a fan of malt! There is no organic malt powder on the market right now, so I use King Arthur's as I think that's the next best option.
