Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and mix into the creamed mixture.
Once the mixture is thoroughly mixed stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a teaspoon place heaped spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheets, spaced well apart and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes until lightly golden.
