Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies


This healthier version of the original chocolate chip cookie is still chewy and full of flavor. I came up with this recipe on my own so that I could feel a little less guilty about snacking on my favorite sweet treat. Unfortunately, I think they are so delicious that I tend to eat more than I should!

36 cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Cream butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix until light and fluffy. Add whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt and mix. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts to make a very crumbly dough. Use hands and spoon to press and compact dough.

  3. Form dough into approximately 3 dozen 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Press down slightly to flatten.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
