Amazing chocolate cookies

Hi healthy eaters!
We have been wondering for some time what the best word to describe this little awesomeness is. And probably it would be just: perfect. But let's be honest. These are not the healthiest cookies on the earth. What is more, they are not even close to be just a bit healthy. However, if you have a sweet tooth, then having a cookie, or two, from time to time is not a diet crime for anyone, take all the ingredients now!
Nevertheless, we are still a healthy blog, so we decided to transform original recipe a little, so you can minimalise your remorses connected with sudden abandonment of healthy lifestyle. If you are not that kind of person, in brackets you can find the original recipe. If you still need an encouragement to bake these cuties, there are a few advantages: tender, sweet, simple, hearty, moist & chewy. We hope you will enjoy our special recipe.

Wholesome cooking!

For about 20 cookies

100g butter
1 cup flour - you can use wholewheat flour but we did not try this
1/4 cup half: brown and muscavado sugar - trust me, it is enough (originally: 1 cup sugar)
1/3 tsp salt
1/3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
2 chocolate bars ex. dark and milk - you can also use only one bar and replace unused rest of the bars with nuts (originally: 3 chocolate bars)
1/2 cup walnuts (original recipe does not include nuts)

Leave the butter in room temperature for 15 minutes. Chop chocolate into small pieces (about 8x8mm). Sift flour into the bowl together with salt and baking powder. Beat butter with sugar for 5 minutes. Add egg to the mixture and beat for another 5 minutes. Add flour mixture and mix everything with mixer. Add chopped chocolate and mix with spoon. Fill baking tray with baking paper. Start to form balls from dough and place it on baking paper. Balls should have max. 5 cm of diameter. Leave about 7-8 cm of free space between cookies. Flatten a bit cookies. Put it in the oven pre-heated to 160 celsius (320 F) and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown edges. Remember, that cookies after taking out from the oven are very tender so leave them for at least 20 minutes to cool down and become more tough (do not worry, they will be soft and tender).
