Compost Cookies

Delicious cookies that are full of whatever crumbs you have leftover from your last junk food binge!




  1. Firstly, mix up your cookie dough according to the packet instructions (in my case, it was just add water).
  2. In a ziplock bag, crush up the potato chips and pretzels into small pieces. Add this mix into the cookie dough.
  3. Mix it all together and then add in the chopped up chocolate bar and the nuts.
  4. Overturn the entire thing onto a piece of cling film and then roll it into a long cylinder. The dough needs to be put in the fridge for a couple of hours so that it is very cold.
  5. After a couple of hours, remove from the fridge and cut it into disks. Try not to handle the dough too much, as your body heat could affect it.
  6. Place the disks on cookie sheets and bake in a moderate oven until they are golden brown on top.
  7. Finally, let them cool and then eat and enjoy!


This recipe is extremely loose, and you can really add anything that you fancy, sweet or savoury. It’s highly forgiving…
