Time for another recipe. Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip cookies. Don't let the name fool you. These are delicious and if you are new to using whole wheat, try white whole wheat. It has the same nutritional value as whole wheat only lighter in color and milder in taste. It's not bleached or enriched, just a different type of wheat. Anyway, I've made these a few times and we love them. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/4 C. raw or turbinado sugar
1 C. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C. Whole Wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. (12 oz.) chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Mix sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
*You can also add 1 Cup of chopped nuts with the chocolate chips if you'd like.
