Easy cookie recipes for kids

If there’s one thing or activity you should teach to your child while they are still young, it’s baking. Baking or cooking primarily encourages children’s thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. Furthermore, since baking has a mix of math itself, they will also have the opportunity to master their counting and measuring skills. And since most toddlers are naturally enthusiastic and curious, you can expect them to be filled with excitement with simple tasks such as stirring, kneading, and even scooping batters and other ingredients. 

However, as a parent, you still have to be responsible and mindful of their safety. First off, you must set some rules for your toddler when they are in the kitchen. For example, only you can touch the knives, push buttons, and more. Second, you must read and follow the recipe from start to finish before your toddler’s excitement gets ahead of them. And with this, you must prepare and set up everything beforehand. This means already setting up the ingredients and tools on the counters. If you have smaller tools that are fit for toddlers, then that would be perfect. For example, a small bowl that they can stir the ingredients in, a child-sized apron, and more.

Lastly, you must look for a recipe that is very simple and doable for children. Here’s a very easy chocolate chip cookie recipe you and your child can do:


1 egg

1 3/4 cups flour

125 g butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Chocolate chips



Preheat the oven 180°C and line three trays with baking paper then set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla then add the egg, flour, and salt, and combine. Stir in the chocolate chips. Roll the dough into teaspoon-sized balls and place them on the trays. Make sure to leave enough room in between cookies to spread as it cooks. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes then leave the cookies on the tray for a few minutes to cool down before removing. Feel free to make your child add other ingredients they want (e.g. chocolate chips, nuts, m&ms, etc). Serve.
