Sourdough Discard Chocolate Chip Cookies

Success! You're on the list.

Maybe you are new to sourdough, or you are a seasoned vet, either way we are all on the lookout for new ways to use our discard. What better way to use it up than to make a batch of cookies? I mean, it is using your sourdough discard so somehow that makes it feel like it is a little bit healthier. At least that is what I am telling myself. These Sourdough discard Chocolate Chip Cookies are so fluffy and sweet. They quite literally melt in your mouth.

More melt in your mouth sweet treats: S’more Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cut Out Sugar Cookies, Lemon Poppyseed Sweet Rolls and Strawberry Iced Sugar Cookies.

My main goal is to create easy meals that can be enjoyed by the whole family. These days it seems like we are getting pulled in a thousand ways, except toward our homes and our dinner table. Dinner is the perfect time to take a deep breath and talk as a family, doesn’t matter if there are 2 of you or 10. I want to be able to help encourage you and provide doable meals that can help make this time happen.

More doable family meals: Sloppy Joe Pasta Casserole, Sheet Pan Dinner, Creamy Sausage Pasta and White Sauce Chicken Enchiladas.

Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment paper because these cookies tend to stick. Also be cautious of not over baking them. I bake mine for 9 minutes.
