Can I add chocolate chips to the Chia Cookies?

Absolutely! Feel free to add a handful of chocolate chips or chunks to the dough before baking for a chocolatey twist.

Expert Tips

  • Dough Consistency: If the dough is too sticky to handle, chill it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before shaping.
  • Uniform Cookies: Use a cookie scoop to ensure all your cookies are uniform in size, which helps them bake evenly.
  • Check Doneness: Cookies should be just golden around the edges as they will continue to harden as they cool.

How Do I Ensure the Cookies are Chewy and Not Too Hard?

To keep the cookies chewy, avoid overmixing and overbaking them. Remove them from the oven when they are just lightly golden, and they will firm up as they cool without becoming too hard.
