While the original American chocolate chip cookie is typically made with all-purpose flour, white sugar, and butter, our New Nordic version incorporates whole grain flour, a touch of honey, and replaces some of the butter with Nordic rapeseed oil. Additionally, we have added dried lingonberries to infuse the cookies with a distinct Nordic twist. We alse have the original recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie, so you can check it out.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Whole grain flour — Whole grain flour adds a nutty flavor and extra fiber to the cookies. If you prefer a lighter texture, you can substitute half of the whole grain flour with all-purpose flour.
  • Nordic rapeseed oil — Rapeseed oil is a healthy alternative to butter, providing a subtle nutty taste. Make sure to use a high-quality rapeseed oil from a trusted source.
  • Dried lingonberries — Lingonberries are a traditional Nordic ingredient with a tart flavor. If you can't find dried lingonberries, you can substitute them with dried cranberries or cherries.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a more pronounced Nordic flavor, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top of each cookie before baking.
  • If you prefer a sweeter cookie, you can increase the amount of honey or use a combination of honey and maple syrup.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container to maintain their texture and freshness.
  • These cookies pair wonderfully with a cup of hot lingonberry tea or a glass of cold Nordic-style oat milk.
  • Experiment with different types of dark chocolate, such as those with higher cocoa percentages, to find your preferred level of richness.
