The Perfect Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cookie

Print Recipe
1 dozen


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg plus one egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Bluebird Einkorn Flour or substitute Bluebird Einkorn Baking Mix
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda omit if using Einkorn Baking Mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt omit if using Einkorn Baking Mix
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Brown your butter. Start by melting ¾ cup butter over medium heat in a saucepan. First, your butter will begin to boil. Let it cook a little longer until it foams. Once butter is foaming, remove from heat and continue to stir until foam has disappeared. Butter should be a light brown color. Let butter cool for 2-3min.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup brown sugar and ¼ cup white sugar and butter. Mix until just combined.
  • Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla to the sugar-butter mixture until just combined.
  • To the same bowl, add 2 cups Bluebird Grain Farms Organic Einkorn Flour, ¾ teaspoon baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined (do not over mix).
  • Mix in 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop and roll dough into two inch balls. Place balls on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30min (DO NOT SKIP) This allows the whole grain flour to soak up all the good flavors. It is worth the wait.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-11min
  • When cookies are done baking, take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
