Favorite Varieties of Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies 1

– Inspired by my dad’s amazing almond oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I didn’t actually use oatmeal in these cookies but I think I need to try that out next time.

Big Fat Chewy Multichip Cookies #crosssection #holidaybaking

Big, Fat, Chewy Multichip Cookies

– This was the beginning of the journey to perfection (and one of my first posts). I still enjoy making these cookies because they are jumbo sized and have semisweet chocolate, white chocolate and peanut butter chips.

Chewy Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

– If you thought these cookies couldn’t get any chewier, try adding raisins. If you don’t like raisins use any kind of dried fruit such as cranberries or blueberries (would be great with white chocolate chips).

Smoked Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Smoked Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

– Salted caramel is a popular trend right now but have you tried smoked sea salt yet? This is a cookie with a depth of flavor.

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

“I Can’t Believe It’s Healthier” Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies 3

Lavender White Chocolate Chip Cookies

– Dig a little bit of floral flavor? How about a lavender version?

Banana Split Chocolate Chip Cookies

– Continuing the fruit trend, I also turned a banana split into a cookie.

Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Brown Butter Cookies

– In case that wasn’t enough fruit, how about adding some blueberries? Paired with white chocolate and brown butter they taste almost like blueberry pie a la mode.
