Behold the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie! These little cookie morsels are just the right texture, have a deliciously bold vanilla flavored-dough and chunks of dark chocolate. They truly are the definition of the best chocolate chip cookies out there.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda and salt until combined. Set aside.
  3. Place the butter in a large glass mixing bowl. Microwave on high 30 seconds or just until the butter is mostly melted (it can have small chunks of soft butter that aren’t completely melted). Add the sugar and egg to the bowl. Use a hand mixer or a whisk to beat or whisk the mixture until fluffy and pale in color. Add the yogurt, miso paste and vanilla and beat or whisk until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredient mixture a little bit at a time, beating with the hand mixer until just combined and it resembles cookie dough. Alternatively, use a spatula to fold together the ingredients until just combined (a hand whisk is not the best tool for this step).
  5. Use a spatula to fold the chocolate chips into the dough until just combined.
  6. Use a medium cookie scoop to form about 2-inch balls of the cookie dough. Roll them between your hands, then line them on the prepared baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
  7. Bake 9-12 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to set and the bottoms are faintly browned. Let them slightly cool before enjoying.


Cooking Tip: Adding miso to desserts brings out the natural flavors of the other ingredients (i.e. chocolate), enhances the flavor and adds a chewy texture to cookies.
