wholemeal chocolate chip cookies
wow yummy. chocolate chip cookies have about a million recipes. the one that comes on the tollhouse chocolate chip bags is actually a really good one. this one however, was altered from martha’s kitchen. these are the thin crumbly yet slightly chewy ones. i don’t really like cakey chocolate chip cookies, if it’s cakey, it should be a cake! i used wholemeal flour again (because i have a big bag of it) so it’s slightly good for you 🙂

ingredients:
2 cups of wholemeal all purpose flour (regular all purpose flour is the same portion as well)
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of butter (or shortening)
1 whole egg
1 egg white
2 cups of semisweet dark chocolate chips

preheat oven to 350°F or 170°C

step 1: the mixing
in a bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt. then in a larger mixing bowl, mix together the butter/shortening with the sugars (the white and brown!). add in the vanilla, whole egg and egg white. now fold in the dry mix from before. mix with a spatula until all combined and then fold in the chocolate chips. the chips should be last!

step 2: the baking
use 2 spoons to form dough balls about 1 inch in diameter and place them on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. they will spread so make sure you give enough space. bake for 12-15 mins – until golden brown. i like my cookies soft in the middle for some reason so i took them out at about 12 mins, keep them in there for another 1 -2 mins to get the middle solid. if you’re using 2 baking sheets, make sure you rotate the trays halfway through the baking time and switch levels.

let the cookies cool on a cooling tray and enjoy! i actually made a few batches crunchier because vini likes them crunchy – perfect for ice cream sandwiches just like diddy riese!

    “perfect with ice cream sandwiches”, we have never thought about that! great idea!

  3. Ohhh, I want to dive into that plate right now and it’s only 8:30am! 🙂

  4. Let’s face it: you can’t REALLY go wrong with chocolate chips. Your recipe looks good, though. I’ll try it this week.

    Looks great! It took me years to figure out how to make my cookies look like cookie store cookies, but your preferred ‘slightly crispy on the outside and slightly gooey in the middle’ makes my mouth water. So yours is the next cookie recipe I try. Although, being a diabetic, I may try it with one substitution: using Splenda (granulated) in place of the granulated sugar. Thanks.

  7. mmmm these are delish. i can say this with authority as i am eating one as i type this!! i wish i had some ice cream to make it into a sandwich….
