Recipe Notes

The first time I made these cookies, I left the cookie dough in mounds on the baking sheet (affiliate link) and the cookie were thicker and chewier. The next time, I flattened them slightly with the back of a spoon before baking and they spread out more, were much thinner and had a deliciously chewy crunch to them.

Variations and Substitutions

Tablespoon mini chocolate chip and Heath bits cookies topped with sea salt.

Tablespoon Sea Salt Mini Chocolate Chip Heath Bits Cookies

  • Substitute your favorite add-ins in place of the mini chocolate chips. I’ve used mini M&M baking bits, Butterfinger baking bits, and a combination of Heath Bar bits and mini chocolate chips with excellent results. Reese’s Pieces minis or peanut butter chips would also be delicious.
  • Change up the flavor profile by using maple, almond, coconut or orange extract in place of, or in addition to, the vanilla—perhaps decreasing both ⅛ teaspoon if you’re using more than one.
  • Use your favorite 0 calorie sweetener in place of the Monkfruit sweetener.
  • Try substituting finer Truvia Brown Sugar Blend (affiliate link) for the coarser turbinado sugar.
  • Top with a lite sprinkle of coarse sea salt as soon as they out of the oven.
