Easy double chocolate muesli cookies

“Everything’s good, so long as it’s chocolate,” DH never tires of telling me. And he may have a point. So when I was considering baking a batch of weekend cookies, I naturally thought of making chocolatey ones. But you know me, I couldn’t make anything so altogether unhealthy as just a regular chocolate cookie. 

Meanwhile, my recipe for easy muesli cookies is one of the most popular on Family-Friends-Food. Probably because a) they’re super easy to make, b) they taste fantastic and c) you can persuade yourself that they’re healthy because they contain muesli! So it wasn’t exactly a huge leap of the imagination to attempt a chocolate version of this biscuity delight. And I’m thrilled to share the wonderful results of this highly successful baking experiment with you 🙂

Crumbly, chewy, rich and chocolate, and packed with fruit & nuts. These easy-to-make double chocolate muesli cookies are a real treat!

These double chocolate muesli cookies are light, crunchy-yet-chewy, chocolatey, and packed with fruit, nuts, and chocolate chips. Kipper, unsurprisingly, was exceptionally keen on them! She had one as an after-school treat and it disappeared very quickly, followed by a request to ‘test’ another one. Hmmm.

I used butter, just to be extra decadent, and they really do have a lovely rich flavour. However I’m sure you could substitute margarine to make them parve if necessary. They would still be marvellously chocolatey, and packed with flakes and grains and nuts and deliciousness!

You know, I’ve an inkling these would make really fantastic ice-cream sandwiches. Just saying.

Healthy too 😉

This made 15. Next time I might make them a bit smaller. Or not…

Rich & chocolatey, these easy-to-make muesli cookies are the ultimate healthy(ish!) treat! Packed with fruit, nuts & chocolate, they're a guaranteed hit!
