Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies are made healthier with whole-wheat flour and less sugar but are still thick, chewy and make the perfect treat!
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love enjoying a chewy cookie just like everyone else but don't make them nearly enough. With us being home so much more this last year, the kids have had a lot of fun helping me cook and bake and together, we came up with these thick and chewy whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. They are so delicious! I made them for social media and decided that they were so good that I had to share them on the blog. I hope you enjoy!

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

What makes these chocolate chip cookies healthier? They are made with 100% white whole-wheat flour which gives them more fiber and vitamins than using white flour. They also have less sugar than other chocolate chip cookies but still taste plenty sweet. I have made them with walnuts as well which are very delicious- if you want, feel free to add in 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts.

These cookies turned out chewy but firm. They are thick and taste delicious with a glass of milk. I'm sure you can imagine that my entire family loved them. They are cookies after all! 


Storing Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can store these whole wheat chocolate chip cookies in a plastic container on the counter for about 5 days. If you don't plan to eat them in that timeframe, you can freeze them wrapped in plastic wrap in a container for up to 6 months. If the cookies get too hard, you can easily microwave them for a few seconds to soften them up.
