The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies (Whole Wheat)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

I have been experimenting with whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipes for a few years. I have finally hit upon what I believe to be the PERFECT cookie recipe by combining ideas from a half a dozen decent recipes. This is more specifically directed at home-grinders.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together butter, honey, vanilla and Sucanat (brown sugar).
  2. Add in egg. Cream well.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together flour(s), salt, baking soda and powder.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture to creamed mixture.
  5. Add oats, then chocolate chips and almonds (optional).
  6. Bake at 350 for approximately 10 minutes. Take them out while still a little bit gooey. Let finish baking outside of oven while cooling on the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan once firm.

These cookies are truly perfect right out of the oven! I was a little scared that the oatmeal might make it not taste good. I was wrong they blend in perfectly. I don't feel as guilty eating this healthier version of a classic cookie. The only thing I would change on the recipe is less sugar. To me the cookie is to sweet but other then that its perfect. Thanks for the new keeper recipe! :)

Wonderful! I used regular raw sugar in place of sucanat, I didn't add the almonds and I used a chopped up toblerone bar for the chocolate. My family took a bite and loved them, then they gave me a funny look when I told them they were whole wheat. Crispy and chewy, the flavor of the whole wheat gives them a nutty taste.

Delicious! After buying some sucanat in bulk, I was searching for some good recipes to use it in. This cookie recipe was very moist and chewy. I have not tried it with the chocolate/caramel swirled morsels, but I imagine it would be good as well. I used only about a cup of semi-sweet chocloate chips, which was enough for us ... especially when I push a few of the chips onto the top of each cookie before baking them. Probably would be great with raisins too. We've been trying to cook/eat less processed foods and use more whole grains, so it's been fun to have these, somewhat guilt-free, cookies around the house. They're especially tasty fresh out of the oven. :-)
