Wholemeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can’t go past a classic chocolate chip cookie (or biscuit depending on what you prefer) and we’re sure you have your own recipe already but why not give this one a try?

This recipe is easy, fast and makes deliciously soft, sweet and choco-full cookies. Replacing regular flour with wholemeal flour gives the biscuit a richer taste. The recipe may look od to you as you will notice there is no baking powder but bear with us – this recipe works!

We also recommend you head down to the tips before you go ahead with this recipe, there are some good notes to keep in mind (if we do say so ourselves).

100g butter
¼ cup sugar
1 ¼ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of milk1
½ teaspoons vanilla essence
2 ¼ cups of wholemeal flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups of chocolate chips

Soften butter and add both the granulated and brown sugar and mix until creamed.
Add eggs, milk and vanilla essence to the butter and sugar and mix until well combined
Mix the wholemeal flour, salt and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Ensure you mix these together prior to going in to the wet mixture
Mix about 1/3 of the dry mixture into the wet mixture and combine. Repeat until all of the dry mix is incorporated and a dough forms
Add the chocolate chips and mix
Chill in the fridge for 30 mins to an hour
Preheat oven to 190 degrees and prepare a baking tray with baking paper depending on your tray
Scoop a tablespoon of dough into balls – no need to flatten but do leave around 5cm around each ball when you put these on the baking tray
Bake for 10-15 minutes (check after 7 minutes and see how you’re getting on)
Enjoy warm or cool!

Chilling the mixture makes it easier to ball up so we do recommend this
Roll in to balls – you don’t need a fork or to push these down, they flatten out perfectly themselves
1 ½ cups of chocolate chips would be fine too!
You could replace some of the chocolate chips with walnuts for a crunchier flavour
If you don’t want to make all of the cookies straight away, create individual balls and freeze and you can defrost and cook when you’re ready.
You can also freeze the cooked cookies.

So our question to you is this: Would this recipe replace your current chocolate chip cookie or biscuit recipe? We love these and would love to hear what you think if you make them!
