Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm not saying that these chocolate chip cookies are "good for you", but why not get a dose of whole grains and enjoy it?

This actually happened by accident.  I try to use whole wheat products whenever I can - pasta, bread, flour, etc.  I hadn't tried whole wheat flour in my cookie recipe because I didn't want to change or mess with the texture.  If you've tried whole wheat products, like pasta, they have a texture difference that I didn't want to make when serving goodies like cookies.

One weekend, the hubs asked me to bake some cookies and all I had was whole wheat flour.  We tried it and it actually made for a better cookie recipe!  The texture was the same and the cookies have a little bit of a toffee taste.  Now, I always use this recipe when baking cookies. Enjoy!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Stir both sugars, butter, vanilla and egg until blended.

Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet, approximately 1"-2" apart.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until browned. (I like my cookies chewy, so if you use this cook time, the cookies will be a little soft in the middle)

Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

Try out this recipe and let me know what you think!
