Chocolate Chip (Sourdough-discard) Cookie Recipe!

If you have a sourdough starter, chances are you have some leftover "discard" from feeding it. Don't throw it away! There are all sorts of delicious recipes you can make with sourdough discard. Here's just one example:


  • 120g Butter (Salted)
  • 130g Sourdough Starter discard (100% hydration)
  • 60g Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 140g All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 130g Chocolate Chips or Chocolate bits (Semi-sweet, preferably)
  1. Brown the butter over the stove till brown butter bits appear. Take the pan off the stove and let it cool.
  2. Mix in the butter with the sourdough starter discard, vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, salt and all purpose flour.
  3. Ensure that the mixture has cooled sufficiently before adding in the chocolate chips or broken chocolate bits.
  4. Place mixture in the fridge for 1 hour.  This helps the cookie to achieve a chewy texture. Skip the fridge rest if you prefer a crispier cookie.
  5. Bake at 180C for 15 minutes or until cookie edges are crispy and soft in the middle.

 Enjoy your delicious sourdough discard cookies!
