Chocolate Chip Maple Sugar Cookies

These cookies are a perfect balance of gooey chocolate, with a hint of maple. Adding walnuts creates an other worldly flavor! Using maple sugar instead of white sugar adds a myriad of health benefits including minerals and vitamins. Perhaps maple sugar’s most impressive quality is its lower glycemic index. This means that blood sugar will rise more slowly when consuming maple sugar versus white sugar.

Most cookie recipes encourage a 2 bowl operation where the liquids and solids are combined separately and then folded together. I have also used just one Cuisenart bowl and found the results to be the same!


Mix in Cuisenart until smooth:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¼ cups pure granulated maple sugar

Mix separately and then sprinkle evenly on top of combined mixture. Pulse a few times to incorporate.:

  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Pour in and mix lightly:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk or semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnut pieces

Bake 10-12 minutes in a 325 degree
