I always tell people that you can’t go wrong with a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Buttery, chewy and loaded with chocolate chips, they’re a treat that people of all ages can enjoy. Plus, there are versions out there to suit just about any dietary restrictions including gluten free and vegan. Over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!!), I’m sharing a recipe for Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies that are made with 100% whole wheat flour.
Whole wheat flour can be a great one to incorporate into your baking when you’re trying to bring more heart-healthy whole grains into the mix. Now, some whole grains are not going to turn cookies into health food – but they will make them a healthier option that you can feel especially good about snacking on. Many recipes will tell you to substitiute a poriton of whole wheat flour into a recipe that typically uses all-purpose flour to get the best results. That is because using all whole wheat flour will change the texture and flavor of a standard batch of cookies. But with the recipe, I’ll walk you through all the things you need to know to produce a batch of tasty and (somewhat) healthy chocolate chip cookies to fill up your cookie jar!
