Aussie Lunchbox Chocolate Milo Malted Cookies

Published , Last Updated

During the school holidays, I really enjoy cooking with the kids. I find it relaxing, especially now that they know how to use the Thermomix. When I used to make cookies in the mixmaster I was sure one of the kids would put their fingers in the beaters!! Thankfully I don’t need to worry about that when we use the Thermie!

These Chocolate Milo Malted Cookies were an invention that came about whilst I was trying to come up with a new and interesting cookie to make. My mind kept coming back to the all familiar “Chocolate Chip Cookie” that I make regularly. I resigned myself to making another batch of choc chip and went to find the ingredients.

Happily, I didn’t have any Dutch process cocoa. This meant I would have to think a little harder if I planned to make a tasty cookie. In the pantry, I found a tin of our famous Aussie food icon, Nestle Milo and some dark chocolate chips.

I love crunchy cookies that have too much flavour! So I went looking for something more, that’s when I noticed a can of “Malted Milk Powder.”

The Nestle Malt powder would add to the intensity of the malty goodness of the Milo and create a mega tasty Chocolate Milo Malted Cookies. Whilst the kids and I were busy throwing ingredients in the Thermomix I struck upon the idea to press the cookie in Milo powder prior to cooking.

So we are talking about Milo on Milo with chocolate bits and a healthy serve of malt! With all this deliciousness packed into one cookie, there’ s no need for icing or more toppings. So these are a totally fuss-free cookie.

The kids loved making them with me. I will definitely be making them again for school lunches. So if you’re looking for a new cookie to pack for school or work lunch boxes, give these a try!

If you don’t have malt powder you can just add a little more Milo powder but I do recommend try the cookies with the extra kick of malt. They are out of this world!Remember the cookies will be extremely soft when they come out of the oven. However once cooled they become deliciously crisp.
