What’s In These Chocolate Chip Cookies without Salt?

How Do I Make Chocolate Chip Cookies Salt Free?

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line 3 baking sheets with tin foil and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and water.  With a wooden spoon stir and mix well for a few minutes to combine.
  • Add the flour and low sodium baking powder to the bowl, and stir for another few minutes until the dough is well incorporated.  Add the chocolate chips and mix well to combine.
  • Measure out 1/3 cup of dough for each cookie, and place 3 or 4 balls of dough on each baking sheet.  Place baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes before baking (don’t skip this step), then move to the oven. When one pan is in the oven, put the next pan in the freezer.
  • Bake cookies for 10 minutes.  With an oven safe glove, grab the sheet pan and lift the pan a few inches over the oven rack, and let the cookie pan drop onto the baking rack.  This will allow the cookies so spread out and crinkle at the edges.  Repeat this 3 or 4 more times, baking the cookies for a total of 16-18 minutes.
    Place finished cookies on a wire rack to cool and do not move until they have cooled completely.

The Best Low Sodium Baking Swaps

Baking can be a fun (and delicious!) hobby, but many baking ingredients to contain high amounts of sodium. Baking soda, baking powders, and butters or milks may have additional added salt or preservatives. I like to bake with some fantastic swaps which are have low/no salt, and make better versions of the classics!
