Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sunday, May 29, 2011

After making the healthy brownies, I had a lot of whole wheat flour leftover.  And since we are now down to single digit countdown to our beach vacation — I wanted to use things that were already in the house and fridge like the chocolate chips, etc. 

So I searched the website for a dessert recipe using whole wheat flour and I found this chocolate chip cookie recipe and had all the ingredients in the house. 

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

    3/4 cup margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups sifted whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I only had 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I didn't use any)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Generously grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. 

Stir in the vanilla and eggs. Combine the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda and salt, gradually blend into the creamed mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts if desired. 

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
