Back before I became a food blogger (and obsessed with food), I was one of those people that thought that there was a single magical cookie recipe and that I needed to find it and only make that one recipe.

Fast forward to now, and I have now 6 chocolate chip cookie variation recipes on my blog, not including this one.

I have realized that there is a chocolate chip cookie for every mood and that life is too short to limit yourself to only one!

I first made these cookies on a whim while visiting my in laws in Florida for Christmas.

I had been baking for a few days and decided that I wanted to make cookies.

However, I just wasn’t in the mood for just any cookie and wanted to try something new.

I tested out these classic chocolate chunk cookies and fell in love!

They are perfectly chewy, not cakey, and taste like a bite of heaven.

Everyone loved them!

I had a hard time naming these cookies (because…well I do have 4 other recipes that I also love), but I decided that they are as close to classic (while still using some healthier ingredients) as you can get.

Crispy on the inside + chewy on the inside = cookie perfection.

These are always a hit when I make them, which has been countless times over the last year.
