There are many different ways to make chocolate chip cookies. You can add in different ingredients, change the quantities or leave some out for slightly different results.

Depending on which ingredients you choose to substitute or change you can create thinner and crispier cookies or fluffier and chewier cookies.

Different types of flour can also create an entirely different type of cookie. Even melting or softening your butter can create a very different outcome when baking cookies.

Chocolate chip cookies are a classic but can be made in so many different ways. You can also add different types of nuts or add more or fewer chocolate chips depending on your preference. Although the best chocolate chip cookies use a good amount of chocolate, usually about 1 whole 12 oz bag or 2 cups measured.

Typically you will find some basic ingredients in any chocolate chip cookie recipe such as butter and sugar. One ingredient that you will usually find in this type of recipe is brown sugar.

But is it an absolute must for chocolate chip cookies to come out right? Will it drastically change the texture or flavor of your cookies? And what exactly is the difference between white sugar and brown sugar anyway?

Brown sugar is basically just white sugar mixed with molasses which creates the brown color. Molasses is a syrup that is also created from refined white sugar. It has a caramel flavor that also works well in different sweet and savory sauces.

In brown sugar, the molasses is actually added to white sugar and it retains moisture a little better than plain white sugar and needs to be packed tightly when measuring.

The nutritional profiles of white and brown sugar are only slightly different. Brown sugar contains only slightly fewer calories than white sugar but it is enough to be considered healthier or a low-calorie option.

There are about 15 calories in a teaspoon of brown sugar and a little over 16 calories in white sugar. There is also a small difference in the number of minerals found in white and brown sugar but not enough to make much of a difference in your diet.

However, the chemistry and acidity between white and brown sugar are different and the two sugars can behave slightly differently depending on the recipe. If you swap out one for the other it may change the flavor and texture of your recipe.

White sugar can make cookies rise more and the brown sugar might make your cookies moister. But generally, they can both create sweet and delicious cookies and it’s just a matter of preference.

There is also a slight difference between light and dark brown sugar. Dark brown sugar contains more molasses which make the flavor a little more like caramel.

So what can you do if you don’t have brown sugar in the house? You can actually make cookies using ONLY white sugar. Yes, it’s true, and these cookies are absolutely delicious, if only slightly less chewy than traditional cookies with brown sugar.

I personally love these white sugar chocolate chip cookies because they are sweet and crispy for all you crunchy cookie lovers out there!
