YIELD: 48 cookies




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease a large baking sheet or two.
  • Combine the shredded wheat and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips in the food processor. Blend until it is finely ground.
  • Cream together the butter and the two sugars in a very large bowl.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Stir in the shredded wheat mixture.
  • Add the remaining chocolate chips. Feel free to experiment with adding other things like white chocolate or dark chocolate chips, nuts, M&M's, toffee pieces, anything you like.
  • Drop by flat tablespoons onto the lightly greased baking sheets and pop them into the oven.
  • Check them after 8 minutes or so. Depending on the pan you use, they could be done or it could take as much as 12-15 minutes.
  • Pull them out when the edges are slightly browned and the middle looks soft and squishy, but isn't doughy.
  • Make sure you cool them completely before packing in an airtight container. When they are suitable to pack, they can stay at room temperature for awhile.
