Whole Wheat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Usually when I hear words like "whole wheat", "healthy", "low-fat", I automatically associate it with foods that taste like cardboard. I've switched our family to all whole wheat recently though and have been trying out some new recipes that my kids will like. This is a winner!! These cookies are even better than white flour cookies! I loved them! And the kids approved, too. ;) Thanks, Momables for the recipe!

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1¼ cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside.
  2. Pour the melted butter in the mixer’s bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the eggs, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough.
  3. When ready to bake, heat oven to 375F.
  4. Scoop chilled dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 7 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for even browning -this depends on your oven. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
