Giant Miso Cookies

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

If you love sweet & salty, these cookies are for you! Cookies are such a fun thing to bake because there are endless ingredients to experiment and create any flavour or texture profile possible! What is Miso, you ask? Miso has been used since the eighth century and is a fermented paste made from soybeans, a grain, salt and koji. It can be chunky or smooth and there are more than 1,000 types of miso! Miso adds a salty flavour to many Japanese dishes and can be found in the refrigeration section in most grocery stores. Miso is typically used in savoury recipes such as salad dressings, stir fry’s or sauces, but I have taken a sweeter approach, with a Miso Cookie.

You will love these cookies because they have quite a complex flavour combining the miso, nut butter, butter, and chocolate. They are the perfect amount of salty and sweet.
