Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ed was out on the clam boat with his brother Chris all day today.  I wanted to make him a dessert to warm him up, but that was also good for him!

Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Cookies

In a medium bowl, mix together:

  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a stand mixer, beat until light and fluffy:

  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unbleached molasses sugar, or brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Add to the sugar mixture and blend:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup our own maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Slowly add the dry ingredients into the mixer, until just blended.  Stir in by hand:

  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Drop by rounded teaspoonfulls onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake in a 350 F oven for 10-11 minutes, until set around the edges but still soft on top.

I was also thinking that replacing the chocolate chips with dried cranberries and/or white chocolate chips would be good, too.  Maybe next time!

  1. Hmm…. I generally try to do whole grain with all my cooking but it never occurred to me to do chocolate chip cookies that way. Hearty dessert? Why not!

  2. Does Ed know how lucky he is? You’re making us all hungry!
