Weird, right? But, it kind of makes perfect sense to try out a cookie using whole wheat flour. I mean, that makes it healthy, right? Of course it does. I started to make cookies to try to cover up the scent of the fish broth I was cooking earlier in the day. But, I realized I had no all purpose flour and instead found a bag of whole wheat flour in my cabinet. I was surprised at how moist and tasty this cookie is.
Here’s what you’ll need…
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1/2 C butter (one stick), softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp hot water
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 C whole wheat flour
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a cookie sheet.
We use our Kitchenaid mixer to cream the white sugar, brown sugar and butter until combine. Next, add the egg until combined, followed by the vanilla extract. Dissolve the baking soda into the hot water and add to the mixture until combine. Add the salt and then add the flour slowly until well combined. Lastly, add the chocolate chips.
Spoon out heaping teaspoons onto your greased cookie sheet, making sure not to cloud the cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the center of each cookie is firm.
