I recently asked my grandmother for her chocolate chip cookies recipe, because every time I go over to her house she is baking something amazing. I particularly remember her chocolate chip cookies w/ walnuts. She knew the exactly how to cook them so they were gooey and delicious. Since she’ve given me her recipe I have made a few alternations mainly to make the recipe a little healthier.
What You’ll Need:
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (I use Josephine’s whole wheat baking flour from Trader Joe’s, can also use gluten free flour)
1 cup of organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic sugar (can also use organic coconut sugar for healthier alternative)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter (You can also use coconut oil instead of butter, equal parts)
1 pack of semi sweet chocolate chips (I use Trader Joe’s brand chocolate chips, they are gluten free)
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
In a mixer or bowl (you don’t need a mixer for this recipe) mix together the whole wheat flour, organic coconut sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, vanilla, 1 whole pack of chocolate chips, and walnuts.
Crack 2 eggs in same own over ingredients
In a separate bowl melt the butter in the microwave for 20 – 30 seconds
Pour butter in bowl with the rest of the cookie ingredients
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Bake for 12-15 minutes *Keep an eye on cookies after 10 minutes of baking, they can burn easily so be careful. You’ll know they are done when the edges of the cookies are slightly darker*
Serve and Enjoy!
