Sometimes bigger truly is better. 😉 My Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie is the single-serving, monster-sized cookie of your dreams. if you’ve ever found yourself complaining that traditional chocolate chip cookies are just too small, then this is truly the recipe for you! Plus, this isn’t your mama’s chocolate chip cookie – it also happens to be gluten-free, grain-free, paleo-friendly, and vegan. What could be better than that?!
Friends, if there’s anything better than a traditional chocolate chip cookie, it’s a GIANT chocolate chip cookie. This giant cookie recipe totally takes me back to being a kid, and getting a cookie from the local hole-in-the-wall bakery. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I always felt like the cookies from those bakeries were so big! As a kid, it would take me way too long to finish them, and oftentimes by the time I was done, my hands would be fully covered in chocolate. And looking back, I can honestly say that it was 100% WORTH IT.
But since those bakery-style cookies are often full of… well, not the healthiest ingredients, I wanted to create my own healthy twist on these giant, nostalgic cookies. And don’t get me wrong, I love a good bakery cookie every now-and-then. But I also love that I can whip up a healthier version whenever I want. It’s called balance. 🙂
And while this cookie is a single-serving recipe, if you’re looking for a cookie recipe that can feed a crowd, I highly recommend my viral Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies for a true crowd-pleaser, my Best Ever Chocolate Chunk Olive Oil Cookies for a rich, delicious cookie recipe, or my Best Gluten-Free Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for a more conventional chocolate chip cookie recipe!
Would you believe me if I told you that you that this recipe uses only 7 different ingredients? It’s true! It truly could not be easier to make this Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie anytime that the craving strikes.
Making this cookie could not be any easier! Simply start by preheating your oven to 350 F. Then, prepare the flax egg. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flaxseed meal with 1 tablespoon of water and set aside for at least 5 minutes, until it thickens up. If you’re using a conventional egg in this recipe, then you can skip this step!
Next, mix together all of the remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, minus the chocolate chips. Once your flax egg has thickened, add it into the batter and mix well to combine. Then, slowly fold in the chocolate chips.
Form the dough into one large ball, and place it onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Press the cookie down, until it’s about 1/2 inch thick. Then, bake for 13-14 minutes.
Once its done, let cool and enjoy!
