  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup malted milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, malted milk powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  • With the mixer off, add in the dry ingredients. Turn the mixer on low and beat until just combined. Don’t over mix.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks.
  • Cover the dough and refrigerate dough for at least one hour, you can chill it for up to 72 hours.
  • When ready to bake, remove the dough from the fridge. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Roll the dough into cookie balls, about 2 to 3 tablespoons per cookie, depending on how big you want your cookies.
  • Place on a large baking sheet that has been lined with a Silpat or parchment paper, about 2-inches apart.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Remove the pan from the oven and give it a good bang on the counter or solid surface. Sprinkle the cookies with flaky sea salt.
  • Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


To measure flour, fluff, spoon and level. Don’t pack the flour into the measuring cup. I use Carnation Original Malted Milk Mix. You can find it at most grocery stores.
