To celebrate the start of the new series of Great British Bake-Off, Aldi contacted me to see if I'd like to take part in their 'Aldi's Amazing Bakes' challenge. The aim of the challenge was to rustle up a tasty baked treat on a budget using Aldi ingredients. They kindly sent me some Aldi vouchers and I headed off to their brand new store in Bideford, just a few minutes away from my office (no more 40 mile round trips to Liskeard anymore!!), to see what I could find for inspiration.
I decided to keep things simple and make some super easy chewy choc chip cookies. Perfect for after school snacks now the kids are back at school! You could vary the recipe quite easily by using raisins instead of choc chips, or maybe even some chopped nuts.
This is a great base recipe for adding your own little twist. Enjoy!
