  • Caster Sugar: 1 cup
  • Unsalted Butter: 125g, room temperature
  • Egg: 1
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 tsp
  • Almond Meal: 50g
  • Self-Raising Flour: 200g
  • Chocolate Chips: 100g
  • Food Coloring: Red, yellow, green, and blue (¼ tsp each)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Begin by preheating your oven to 320°F (160°C), ensuring it’s ready for baking the cookies.
  2. Prepare the Cookie Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the caster sugar and unsalted butter until the mixture is light and fluffy.
    • Add the egg and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until fully incorporated.
    • Gently fold in the almond meal and self-raising flour with a pinch of salt, mixing until just combined.
    • Stir the chocolate chips into the dough, distributing them evenly.
  3. Color the Dough:
    • Divide the cookie dough evenly among four separate bowls.
    • Add a different color of food dye to each bowl (red, yellow, green, and blue) and mix thoroughly until each portion of dough is vividly colored.
  4. Shape and Bake the Cookies:
    • Take small portions from each colored dough and combine them to create a multicolored effect. Roll the dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Ensure there’s enough space between each cookie on the baking sheet as they will spread during baking.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cookies are just set and the edges are slightly golden.
  5. Cooling:
    • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes to set further, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serving Suggestion: Serve these eye-catching Rainbow Chocolate Chip Cookies at your next party or gathering, or simply enjoy them with a glass of milk or your favorite cup of tea as a colorful treat.

Baking Tips:
