Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies



Did you know that cookies made with whole wheat flour are good for you?  And if you grind your own wheat berries to make the whole wheat flour - then the cookie calories don't count at all.  Seriously.  That's what I'm going with anyway :)

I was curious to see what this recipe would be like since I have never used whole wheat when making cookies, but let me tell ya, they are awesome!  I gave one to my teenager and she didn't notice a thing.  She even asked for another one :)




Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups siflted whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Mix in vanilla and eggs.  Combine flours, baking soda and salt.  Gradually blend flour mixture into butter mixture.  Fold in chocolate chips and drop onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with a Silpat or that has been greased.  Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets before placing on a wire rack.

  1. They look great! I use whole wheat flour in my chocolate chip cookies too. They really do turn out well...and it feels good to know you are eating a "healthy" cookie!
