How to make the Chocolate Chip Cookies in a jar?

First, pour the flour mixture (oat flour, combined with the protein powder, baking soda & salt) at the bottom of the jar.

You can use a spoon to transfer the mixture. Then, use the spoon or a smaller cap from another jar to push down the flour and make more space for the rest.

Next, add a layer of sugar, and finally on the top – the chocolate chips. You can also play with the order of the layers. Before gifting the jar, add the free printable tag with the recipe instructions.

Note: The recipient will have to add the wet ingredients (oil + milk) before baking the cookies. That’s why it is essential to have a printed or handwritten tag with the instructions attached to the jar.

FAQ:

How long will this cookie mix keep?

If all the ingredients are fresh and recently purchased, it can last 3-4 months. For best results, promptly make the cookies after receiving the jar. This is because the sugar may become a bit stiff, and hard to take out.

What’s the best jar size for this recipe?

You can use 620g (22 oz) or a smaller jar for the cookie mixture. I used 620g, and 900g (check the first image for reference), and there was space on top both times. I haven’t tried, but a smaller jar (like this 16 oz) should work well if you press down tightly the ingredients. Using mini chocolate chips will also affect how full the jar is.

How to prepare the jar?

Since you will be storing food, make sure the jar is completely clean. You can put it in boiling water for a bit, and then let it air-dry (or dry it with a cloth towel). Make sure the jar is fully dry before putting the ingredients, so they don’t stick to the edges.

Can I skip the protein powder?

I haven’t tried (yet) this recipe without protein powder, so I can’t confirm if the result will be as good. If you want to experiment and skip the protein powder – add more oat flour. (again, I can’t recommend it, and if you do that – do it at your own risk)

If you want to keep the protein powder in the recipe, I recommend using one of my favorite, called Vitally Vegan. Use the code ZEROWASTE to get £10 OFF your purchase.
