Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

For my very first recipe post, I wanted to do something classic. Well, you don't get much more classic than chocolate chip cookies.

These chocolate chipsters are actually whole wheat, made with freshly ground flour, organic butter, organic eggs, and sucanat. Don't let that scare you though! They are actually delicious. You can hardly tell a difference between these and your average chocolate chip cookie, except that you might feel less guilty about eating them : )

There is something nostalgic and comforting about chocolate chip cookies. It seems like no matter how bad your day might be going, eating a chocolate chip cookie somehow makes you feel a little bit better. Or maybe its just me. In any case, no matter what type of day you're having, its a good day for cookies.

These cookies are a snap to throw together, and the finished product offers a cookie that is crisp around the edges, and soft in the center - delish!

I had some mini chocolate chips on hand, and they were just so cute, I felt compelled to use them. I pressed the top of the cookie dough balls into a bowl of the mini chips - makes the chips more visible, so everyone can see how adorable they are.
Good to the last bite.

Happy baking!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from the Nestle Tollhouse recipe
Makes about 5 dozen cookies


10 oz. Soft White wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/2 cup honey-granule sucanat
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts


Preheat your oven to 375ยบ.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside. Cream butter and sucanat. Add vanilla to creamed mixture. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition. Gradually stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.

Place rounded tablespoons of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet, using a cookie scoop, or two spoons.

Bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
