Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Clover

I have said before on here, that if I do a recipe post it will be a recipe that ANYONE could make, and that’s what I have for you today. My easy chocolate chip cookies made with Clover, are one of my boys’ favourite treats for after their evening meal, and they are so simple to make. Here’s my fail safe recipe.

Easy Choc Chip Cookies with Clover

First things first, you will need to pop your oven on to preheat. Mine is a fan oven and I put it on at 160 degrees for this recipe, but if yours isn’t a fan oven I’d still say to try the same temperature and just cook for a little bit longer, as they don’t take long to cook at all.

You will need to line 2 to 3 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. The recipe makes around 26 cookies, so plenty to share.

Cookies Ingredients


225g plain flour

150g Clover melted a little bit (which now has no artificial ingredients)

100g light brown sugar

100g milk chocolate chips (or white or dark chocolate, which ever you prefer!)

60g granulated sugar

2 tea spoons of vanilla extract

1 medium egg


As I said this is an extremely easy recipe. All you need to do is put all of your ingredients, other than the chocolate chips in to a big mixing bowl. Then mix until the mixture is all looking wet and gooey and you can’t see clumps of flour any more.

Then add the chocolate chips and mix/fold them in to the mixture. Now you have your cookie dough all ready – see I told you it was easy!

Use a small spoon to help you to put the mixture on to the baking trays in small mounds. Remember that they spread quite a lot, so leave plenty of space between them. If you want bigger cookies, then you can use more mixture for each cookie and make a few less.

Pop them into the oven and leave to cook!

When I make them, they are ready after around 13 minutes, depending on your oven and how you like them it may take more or less time. I cook them for long enough that the edges are crispy, but the centre is still soft almost like a shortbread.

Since they don’t take long to cook, keep an eye on them!

Cookies Choc Chip

Now for the best part, the taste test as any parent has to pre-taste any yummy foods they’re giving to their children obviously. It’s pretty much a legal requirement!


By the way, the mixing bowl I used today to make these came from Simon’s Mum as mine has gone walkabout somewhere again (the joy of boys, I don’t even want to know what it’s been used for!) and the bowl was 38 years old. I feel quite young now…

I’ve been using Clover to cook with and as a spread for years, as I love the taste and was a little worried when I saw they were now not including any artificial ingredients, as I thought the taste may have changed. Luckily it hasn’t, and it’s nice to know that my boys will have less artificial additives now.

Clover gets part of it’s great taste from the buttermilk it’s made with. It’s the only spread I’ve found that tastes as good if not better than butter, but only has around half the saturated fat of butter.

This is the good thing about home baking as well, you know exactly what’s in the things you bake. Over on Clover‘s Facebook page at the moment, they have a fun competition to win a Clover oven glove and for 30 people to have their photo put on to special ‘Nothing Artificial’ fridge magnets if you fancy popping over to try.

If you have a go at making my cookies yourself, then let me know what you think. I promise you can’t go wrong making them, very easy!

P.S For any Type 1’s out there who carb count, they work out to 0.661g of carbohydrate per 1g of cookie ;)

    Ooh I do like an easy recipe! We made cookies yesterday too, great for making with small people because they’re so simple. I might have a go at your recipe next time, they look fab!x

      They are so quick to make, they disappear in no time afterwards though ;)

    Hm, I feel about ready for a cuppa and a choc chip biscuit now – is there anything more comforting? Agree with you regarding knowing what goes into home baking, plus home made just tastes better! #picknmix

    • 6 November 2015 / 11:37 am

      It definitely does, especially as you can eat it whilst it’s still warm!

      Most definitely a recipe it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong with :)

    These look delicious! I am so not a baker though. I feel like I should do more but honestly… it’s just not my thing. I do like eating them though! #picknmix

    • 6 November 2015 / 11:47 am

      I’m incapable of making a decent cake etc, but these are honestly the easiest thing you’ll ever make….well other than toast obvs ;)

    What a deliciously easy cookie recipe! I make a similar one using dates instead of choc-chips. #picknmix

    • 6 November 2015 / 11:49 am

      I keep meaning to try these with raisins, though they’d just be more like flatter rock buns then ;)

    These sound great. Have to admit though that I’m very tired & had forgotten Clover is a butter, so I came to this post thinking it was cookies with clovers (like the flower) in, which I thought was an intriguing idea! After some consideration, however, I suspect that this recipe is better, for edibility & stuff! #picknmix

    • 6 November 2015 / 6:04 pm

      Ha, I’m now wondering what cookies with green clover are like! ;)

    These look lovely! I will have to try them with my kiddo’s, they will love them!

    • 6 November 2015 / 6:06 pm

      They are really easy to make as well, so they can get stuck in ‘helping’ ;)

    These look so yummy and you can’t go wrong with fail safe either. I’m so bad in the kitchen. I adore your heart bowls and measuring cups. xx

    • 6 November 2015 / 6:11 pm

      It’s probably sad that I love the fact that when you tip things out of the heart bowls they often keep the heart shape ;) I’m not especially skilled in the kitchen, hence when I find a recipe that works I stick with it ;)

    Ohh I like the look of these, even a terrible cook like me might be able to manage these ;) #picknmix xx

    • 6 November 2015 / 9:08 pm

      I’m really not a natural chef, so any recipes I make or put on here are pretty much fail proof ;) My favourite recipes are where you literally throw all the ingredients in ha!

    Oh why oh why do you do this to me?? lol
    They looks sooooo good!! Now I have to go shopping… :p

    • 9 November 2015 / 9:46 pm

      Ha! They taste even better than they look ;) I’m resisting the temptation to make another batch!

      Of course I don’t mind, I share for others to see and share :) They are really yummy, I’m being good this week as I’m on a diet, but so tempted to make some more! ;)

    150g flour
    100g butter
    50g sugar
    simplest recipe out there ;) I learnt it in year 7 at school and have memorised it ever since although I tend to double it up to make enough. I love to bake but I HATE baking with the kids so I dont tend to do it very much. being 2 & 4 they are more interested in eating the raw ingredients rather than making anything and its far too messy. they usually get sent out of the kitchen in the end whenever I have the stupid brainwave of trying to encourage them.. My mum never used to bake with me either even though she makes the best victoria sponge ever (I dont like cake)

    I think I shall give yours a go though as I do like trying a new recipe, just need to wait untill the girls are out of the house!

      We mostly made salads in my secondary school ha! ;)
