Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

The grand kids really wore themselves out, we came in from playing in the yard and out they went. I must admit I was tired. It was a beautiful sunny day, they played in the dirt for hours. A favorite past time for all the kids. Mamal lets them dig and get dirty. Just toss them in the tub when they are finished. They all know the routine. Lol!


We made cookies in the morning with my whole wheat flour. They were so yummy. The whole wheat flour gives them a chewier texture which we love. You can use regular all purpose flour if you prefer. She’s a great little baker. :)

    They look yummy! I make mine with wheat flour too. It makes me feel better about all of the sugar. I’m visiting from the Sunday blog hop.

    I have switching to more whole foods, sucanat, ww flour, real butter.. I’ll have to give these a try! Here is my Sundae Scoop post: http://likemamalikedaughter.blogspot.com/2012/04/bell-bottom-baby.html

    Would it work just as well to use all sucanat?

      I have not tried it that way but I know people substitute brown sugar with sucanat. I will do that next time. Thanks for stopping by.

    Whoa these look delicious. I was wondering if I could use my whole wheat flour for a batch of cookies or if it would taste bad. Looks like it will be awesome!

    Thanks!

    The grandkids are really cute, and the thrilled look at your granddaughter baking cookies gave me a chuckle. Looks like she enjoys being in the kitchen with you. I’ve never really used whole wheat flour in sweets, so I’m glad to know it still tastes good! Thanks for sharing your great recipe at my party!

    This recipe looks amazing and I am always trying to swap white flour for wheat. I would love it if you would link up to my party at http://www.claimingourspace.com/2012/04/tout-it-tuesday-2.html

      I slowly have gotten white flour out of our diets this past year, and most processed foods. It’s a journey and I feel better already. Thanks for the invite and for stopping by!
