DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl; set aside.
  • Beat butters, sugars, applesauce, and honey on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Gradually beat in flour mixture, just until combined.
  • Scrape down bowl (for flour buildup on the sides) and stir in chocolate chips.
  • Set OVEN to 375ºF (If using dark or nonstick pan, lower temperature to 350ºF).
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still soft; cookies should NOT be browning yet.
  • *optional: You can quickly chill dough or dropped cookie dough on baking sheets in the freezer 10-15 minutes before baking, for a thicker cookie.
  • You can also position oven racks to top and bottom thirds of oven; halfway through baking, rotate cookie sheet top to bottom and front to back.
