Last week I shared a Whole Wheat Banana Bread Muffin recipe, made with a white whole wheat flour that I just used for the first time. Since I loved how those turned out, I decided to try it in a cookie recipe, and once I again I was not disappointed. These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies have a wonderful soft, chewy texture. They are a little bit of a healthier treat, made with the white whole wheat flour, oats, and coconut oil.
Sometimes I think, “Hey! Let dessert be dessert. We don’t have to go and make EVERYTHING healthy! Is nothing sacred?” But since the taste of these cookies was truly not compromised in any way, shape or form (and let’s not forget they ARE still full of sugar and chocolate), I’ll let this one slide.
I appreciate a cookie that has a slightly crisp edges and a soft center, and in order for this to happen they have to be somewhat thick. These cookies did not spread out too much in the oven, even though I didn’t take time to chill them. When the craving strikes, who really wants to wait on that chill?
So how about you whip up a batch of these bad (good) boys, pour yourself a cold glass of milk, and we’ll all just feel a little less guilty! Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
