Easy chocolate chip cookies made with malt milk powder.


  • 115 grams (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 210 grams (1 and 1/2 cups) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 35 grams (1/4 cup) malt milk powder
  • Pinch of salt, optional
  • 115 grams (3/4 cup) milk or dark chocolate chips, plus extra for decorating


  1. Line two baking trays with baking or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars using an electric beater for 1-2 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  3. Add vanilla and egg and beat until combined. Sift in flour, baking soda, malt powder and salt, if using, and mix to combine. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to roll balls of dough (roughly 1.5 tablespoons each) in your hands and place them onto your prepared trays, leaving room for the cookies to spread out.
  5. Bake for approximately 11-12 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. Press a few extra chocolate chips on top. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
