"Everybody raves over these -- they have a richer flavor than ordinary chocolate chip cookies! This is for people with access to freshly-ground flour; it's just not the same with store bought or all white flour. Pecans can be used in place of the walnuts." — kansasgranny

light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
sifted whole wheat pastry flour
semisweet chocolate chips
I took the advice of other reviewers and used all whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of margerine, and Splenda brown sugar with a little honey. I also used dark chocolate chips. The cookies come out a little cakey and SO good. My whole family loved them!! Thanks for the recipe!
too much flour. and DONT use applesauce...makes it cake like and not in a good way!
I have been trying to add whole wheat flour to our diet, and have learned to be careful. All whole wheat recipees are not equal! But this recipee is absolutely scrumptious. I ran out of white flour and used all whole wheat flour and my kids and husband still devoured these cookies faster than I could bake them. When using all whole wheat flour I had to add about 1 cup more flour. Thanks Belinda for the fantastic recipee!
This recipe calls for too much sugar. I only used 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 brown sugar and with that, it was good. I decreased the salt to 1/2 teaspoon because a hate salty cookies. Other than that, this recipe is great. Its nice to have whole wheat once in a while! BTW: Whole wheat flour is not the same as WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR.
This is a great recipe. I did tweak it a bit for my taste since when I made it as in the recipe it was a bit dry.
I reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup
replaced the 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1/2 cup oats (although i might try 3/4 cup next time)
I increased the baking soda to 1 tsp and reduced the choc. chips to 1 cup.
The end result is a bit more hearty because of the oats and a little less sweet. I froze a bunch of the batter and I pull them out when I want a nice warm treat!
My husband and I absolutely love these cookies. I used others advice and used only whole wheat flour and they still tasted great. I went one step further and used splenda and brown sugar splenda in place of the sugars. You can't go wrong with this recipe. We love it for a guilt free snack. Be sure not to overbake.
My friends never miss an invitation to dinner at my house because they assume I'll have these cookies. I use all whole wheat flour, butter instead of margarine, extra walnuts and fewer chocoate chips. One time I only had one egg, so used 1/4 cup of canola oil. You just can't ruin them. Amazing recipe!
Okay, omitted half the chocolate chips and the walnuts. Egg substitute for the eggs. 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup margarine.
Yummy!!!!! Sort of crispy and chewy at the same time. I like these a lot!
