Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its Secret Recipe Club time again! Just as a reminder, as a part of the club, each month you’re assigned another Secret Recipe Club blogger to make a recipe from. If you want to join, click here to sign up.


This month, I was assigned Savvy Eats. Julie seems like such a cool chick! We actually have a lot in common, we both:

  • Went to Big10 Schools
  • Majored in Engineering
  • Have a love of food, health & working out

When I was searching through her recipes, there were SO many I wanted to try. However, when I saw her recipe for malted chocolate chip cookies, I knew this would be the one! Josh is a huge fan of malt and I have never used it in baking. I headed out to the store and picked up a container of malted milk.  You can find the recipe on her blog here and I have also placed it below.



  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup malted milk powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chunks



Preheat the oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat the butter, oil and sugars together until fluffy and creamy. Stir in the malted milk powder and eggs. Add the vanilla, baking soda and salt, mixing until blended.

Slowly mix in the flour, beating until the dough is smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and space 1 1/2-2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until the tops are only lightly browned.



These were totally delicious! A great change up from the run of the mill chocolate chip cookie.
