Chocolate Chip Apple Cookies

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

These cookies are my entry for this month’s We Should Cocoa Challenge hosted by lovely Chele at the fantastic Chocolate Teapot  blog.  The ingredient to be paired with chocolate for November is apple.  I’m not overly keen on chocolate and fruit combinations but I do like being challenged to try making something I might not normally bake.  I wanted to do Chele’s challenge early this month – partly because I failed miserably to enter last’s month’s event and also because I’m going on holiday so won’t be posting for a couple of weeks. 

I thought about making an apple and chocolate cake but it just wasn’t doing it for me. I then thought about doing an apple crumble incorporating white chocolate into the topping but I’m a bit of a crumble purist.  So after some internet research I finally decided on making these cookies whose recipe I found on  I’d say the chocolate slightly dominates the apple but only a little bit.  The apple was grated which meant it didn’t produce a soggy cookie, in fact they are very cake like.  I’m just not sure about them but it then occurred to me as I tried my second that they fit my ‘Jaffa Cake theory’.  I’m just not sure either about Jaffa Cakes but every time I’m offered some I always have to have at least two to check that I still don’t like them. Let’s face it if you don’t like something you don’t go back for more so these cookies are in the same category.  I’m not wild about them but I don’t dislike them. Mr CB however loves them so it is definitely just a personal thing. 

The Recipe

1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 tspn bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tspn cinnamon
2 apples, grated
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (100g packet)

1.  Preheat the oven to 180c. 
2.  Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and then beat in the egg.
3.  In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Then sift into the egg mixture.  Finally stir in the apple, rolled oats and chocolate.
4.  Put rounded teaspoons of the mixture onto a baking tray lined with greased proof paper.  Bake for 12-15 mins.
