  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, and butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the vanilla, salt, and baking soda until well blended, then mix in the ground pecans and flour. Stir in the chocolate chips last. Try not to over mix once you add the flour.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets so they are about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cookies are just starting to brown at the edges. Let cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

call it a perversity, but i had to try this one with only one (bad) review and i'm glad i did. i accidently splashed in extra vanilla, and my margarine - not butter - was melted in some parts. i used freshly-toasted walnuts in place of pecans. my only problem was that i accidently baked them too long, about 15 minutes. THESE COOKIES have a nice nutty flavor from the whole wheat, and they spread out, but not too much like some other chocolate chip cookies. next time, and there will defintely be one, i will bake these at the suggested time. PLEASE ignore the other reviewer (excuse me) but i have absolutely no explanation as to why this cookie didn't turn out for them. whole wheat does take some getting used to, perhaps that's it. have a glass of milk handy for this one!

PLEASE NOTE: I would use the base cookie recipe here again - it is actually very good. However - I am debating on whether or not to even keep these after baking - the amount of chocolate chips overpowers the cookie! I love chocolate and these are just not up to par as written!... Might as well be eating a candy bar! Next time - I will add a MAXIMUM of 1 cup of chips for this entire recipe - or just eliminate them altogether and substitute 1 cup of brickle chips.

These were fantastic! A great way to avoid refined wheat flour and stull indulge. I scaled the recipe down, skipped the pecans, and replaced the white sugar with half as much Splenda. Will make these regularly!

I don't know why anyone would give this less than 5 stars. We absolutely loved these! I didn't have any pecans, so I put in about a quarter cup of flax seeds for some crunch. I might add more next time -- they were pretty good. Personally, I couldn't even tell these were made with whole wheat. We'll definitely make them again.

I thought this recipe was great! I had no problems whatsoever- I was a bit hesitant as to how the cookies would turn out before i put them in the oven because the dough was a little grainy, but they cooked fine. To anyone who likes pecans as much as I do, 1/4 - 1/2 cup of extra pecans works well. Also, I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top of the cookies before I baked them :)

Never will try again. Sorry.

These fabulous cookies came out just perfect! I love when I can use whole wheat in a dessert. :) Didn't change a thing and we love these big, soft, gooey, tasty treats! Beware, this recipe makes A LOT! I only made 1/4 of the recipe and got 2 dozen good-sized cookies. Thanks you so much for the recipe! :)

These truly are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had! Made even better by not using white flour, in addition to the W.W. Flour I added some Flax Meal. I didn't do nuts this time, maybe next time. I baked them for the 10 min. suggested and let sit on the cookie sheet for 2 min. and then moved to cooling rack. Perfect! Only other suggestion is that if you have a dog, keep these and any chocolate away from him. My 2 yr. old puppy ate 1/2 of one before I could catch him. Chocolate can kill dogs. Thanks for a great recipe. Oh, and have a cold glass of milk available for dunking.
