Delightfully Fluffy Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Fluffy Cookies Granola Girl Bakes 3

Some like them crispy, some like them soft, I like them fluffy! 🙂 Chocolate Chip Cookies have never been my specialty and considering I don’t use crisco/shortening to keep things a bit more healthy when baking it makes perfecting a cookie all the harder. I usually mix up a batch, carefully scoop the dough on the tray with high hopes of a fluffy outcome, put them in the oven, then 10 minutes later they have run all over the tray and the smoke alarm is making it’s delightful noise! 😉 But, I finally found a recipe that turns out fluffy and soft EVERY TIME! The creator boasts that this recipe creates the “puffiest” cookie and, though they aren’t the fluffiest I have seen, they definitely hit the “fluffy cookie” spot for me. 🙂 So, what makes this recipe different than others? Chilled butter & baking powder! Most Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes just have baking soda and call for “softened” butter. These simple modifications definitely did the trick! 🙂 How about you? Do you prefer them crispy or soft?

Original recipe from with a few modifications from me!

Yields 12 large cookies


  • 1 stick cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 TBS granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, cold
  • 1 TBS vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 heaping tsp salt
  • 1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place parchment on large baking sheet.
  2. Beat the cold butter and sugar until barely combined (not creamed, not fluffy, not runny- still very cold) Then beat in the egg and vanilla until combined.
  3. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then add them in 2 batches to the wet dough. Once mixed together, add in the chocolate chips, and be liberal with them! You only make puffy chocolate cookies for the first time once 🙂
  4. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out the cookie dough onto your baking. Bake your cookies for 11-13 minutes or until the outsides are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes or as long as your willpower holds.
  5. Then devour!
