For me, these cookies are perfect. Chewy and soft, kinda caramel-y, studded with mini chocolate chips, chopped dried figs and toasted walnut pieces (I like pecans a lot too). You could definitely use whatever combination of things you like best, but I would try it this way first.
I like using mini chips in these. They distribute better throughout the cookie. My chips were vegan semi sweet, but I'm pretty sure I would enjoy dark chocolate chips too, or a combination of both!
I love these with chai or one of my mushroom teas. (Teecino Ashwagandha or Turkey Tail, typically). I love teas that are earthy or warmly spiced with many treats, and definitely with these nutty, figgy, chocolate chip cookies. Even better if you turn it into a tea latte. I heat unsweetened soy milk to fill my mug 1/2 way, add my tea bag, top with boiling water, then a small spoon of local honey.
The brand of sugar I prefer to use is "Wholesome Organic". Of course, use whatever you want!
