Why You'll Love This Recipe

If you are a fan of malts (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 as well (I need to share that recipe soon!).

So, if you're familiar with malts, then you know that malt powder provides a light, creamy, slightly sweetened flavor that nothing else can mimic! This is what makes it so special. So, when I found that King Arthur made a Malted Milk Powder, I just had to try it. Even though it is not organic, I do like King Arthur brand and I buy their organic flours. There is no malted milk powder on the market that is organic yet – why, I do not know because there's only a couple ingredients in it! You would think it would be out there! But, I've searched and scoured the internet.

So, in the meantime, I will use this Malted Milk Powder when I'm craving that matly falvor that only Malted Milk Powder can provide! 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! Delaney even says these taste just like Mrs. Field's cookies (if that helps you bake them!).

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
