When adding flavours add powdered ingredients such as cocoa and almond meal, and small stuff like chia seeds and desiccated coconut to the creamed butter and sugar before adding flour. Chunky stuff like chocolate chips and dried fruit should be added after the flour. I have made so many variations on this I can't even remember them all! Some of my favourites have been: Quadruple chocolate - 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cocoa with milk, dark and white chocolate chips. Super coconut - unrefined coconut oil instead of butter then desiccated coconut and coconut chips. Fruity - dried currants, dried blueberry and dried apricot, all finely diced. Christmas - 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, one teaspoon of mixed spice and one cup of mixed dried fruit.
