Our Favorite Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe! These Cookies are Soft but Chewy. the whole wheat is subtle so it doesn’t feel any healthier than your typical chocolate chip cookie!
Everyone has their go-to chocolate chip recipe. This one came from my mother and has been baked with love in my family since I was a tyke; I’ve made these yummy cookies so many times growing up and now with my own children on many occasions that I have the recipe memorized.
I love this time of year and am happy to see so many friends and family publicly counting what they are grateful for. I am grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to bake a batch of these cookies to put in my kids lunch, to send with my husband for his co-workers, to give to a family member with an encouraging note, to surprise a friend just because, to include for our monthly church groups “cookie night”, to bring to our extended family Sunday dinners or to bake when I’m in the mood for something sweet. It’s amazing how freshly baked chocolate chip cookies can lighten a load, lift a mood or simply make someone smile. 🙂 Don’t let the whole wheat fool you; these are still so full of flavor and delicious! 🙂

Well I’m glad to know my kids don’t see me blogging so much these days, I think I did a lot more when they were younger but have been trying to change my ways so yippee! Sure am grateful for that supportive hubby of mine. He works unique hours so he can help me out here and there. He appreciates my blog for the goodies but he also appreciates me staying home with the kids and knows it’s a fun hobby too. I need that daily craft release, lol!!
