I love potatoe chips, all shapes, sizes and flavours. Next to coke, potatoe chips is my next weakness.
Yes, yes, I know chips are highly salty and super unhealthy but who cares, life is short and I plan to eat every flavour of chip there is out there in the big big world.
When I came across this recipe , I never really thought that potatoe chips could be turned into a cookie… the thought really never did cross my mind. I always associated chip and dip together, never chip and cake flour.
The original recipe contained eggs, so knowing me, I substituted the normal chicken egg for a homemade vegan egg and hey presto the cookie came out perfect and believe it or not the chips stuck to the cookie and the cookie itself did not fall apart.
What I liked about this cookie is that it was not only cookie dough and chips but it also contained chocolate chip pieces…. The Lord has answered all my prayers.
All major food groups, combined into a bite size treat that you can have with your coffee and not feel a single bit quilty.
My parents could not believe that there was actual chips in there, they only believed me when my mum went to the pantry to grab a packet of chips for herself and couldn’t find it. My dad of course said his stomach could not tell the difference… so much help in that department he was I tell you.
