My friend tipped me off to this recipe a few years ago and it's absolutely my favorite whole wheat recipe. The whole wheat flour gives it this wonderfully chewy consistency and you can't even tell it's made with it.
3/4 C Unsalted butter
1 C Sugar
1 C Light Brown Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
2 Cups sifted Whole Wheat Flour
1 C White Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2 C Semi-sweet chocolate chips
DirectionsPre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter & sugars in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix in vanilla & eggs. Combine flours, baking soda & salt. Gradually blend flour mixture into butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and drop onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with silpat or that has been greased. Bake 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets before placing on a wire rack.
- Try adding in 1 cup of oatmeal and reducing the white flour to 1/2 cup.
- I have also made this recipe using only wheat flour (substituting the white for the wheat) and it turned out delicious as well.
