This cookie recipe has been on my mind since last summer when I discovered that King Arthur makes a Malted Milk Powder. If you don’t know what malted milk powder is, it is made from a mixture of malted barley, wheat flour, and evaporated whole milk. Because of this being derived from dairy and wheat, I stopped using it when I went completely organic. However, I have been checking the internet for years waiting for someone to make an organic version. That’s when I stumbled upon King Arthur’s. While it isn’t organic, I do trust the brand and use their cake flour as it’s the best on the market since there is not an organic version yet. So I thought I’d give the Malted Milk Powder it a try as well.
I first used it to make chocolate malt milkshakes last summer. I grew up enjoying malted milkshakes with my dad all the time. Since finding a better alternative for malt powder, we even added malts to the menu at the bake shop.
Because I love malted milkshakes so much, I thought why not try adding malt powder into one of my favorite cookies? So, like I said these Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies have been on my mind for months. And I finally made the time to bake today, and they did not disappoint. The malt flavor is very hard to describe if you don’t know what it is. It really just enhances the flavors in a sweet and creamy kind of way, and really what could be better than that?
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.
