These are my all time favourite chocolate cookies that I have been making since high school, when a friend gave me her auntie's recipe. The choc chips work equally well if they are white, milk or dark chocolate; M&Ms; Smarties; or little easter eggs.


1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup castor sugar
2 egg whites
3 tsp vanilla essence
choc chips

Preheat oven to 190C degrees and line two large trays with baking paper.
In medium size bowl sift flour, cocoa, and baking powder.
In a second, larger, mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg whites and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined and smooth. Carefully fold in choc chips.
Drop the mixture in round dessert spoonfuls, 5cm apart, onto the baking trays. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are set and slightly springy to the touch.
Transfer cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before storing in airtight containers.
