Salted Chocolate Cookies

81 Flares 81 Flares ×

I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately. This is mostly because I am attempting to prepare meals centered around vegetables rather than meat or pasta. I know this doesn’t sound like it would be too challenging, but I feel like I am constantly researching and practicing new ways to prepare some of my favorite seasonal vegetables.

This weekend, I needed a break from vegetables. I needed something sweet and maybe even salty to break up all of this healthy eating.¬†Salty and sweet is a flavor combination I can never get enough of. There is just something so addicting about a sweet flavor in your mouth accompanied by a salty sidekick begging you to eat more. I normally satisfy this flavor addiction with¬†these salted chocolate chip cookies, but I was feeling adventurous this weekend and created a simple salted chocolate cookie, a little bit salty, a little bit sweet… and maybe a little bit addicting.
