Cookie Friday Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, you’ve probably seen these cookies on CNC all week long. I’ve actually made two batches now, and they have been appropriately devoured in less than 72 hours.

As you can tell, I really love these cookies. The whole wheat flour makes them thick and hearty, and the sugar, butterscotch extract, and chocolate chips give them the perfect amount of sweetness. Of course, they taste delicious, but the best part is they’re sort of healthy for you. Ok, no cookie is truly healthy, and if it was, you wouldn’t want to eat it! I mean, broccoli cookies? Um, no thanks.

P.S. I know I was suppose to finish off my Grocery Shopping 101 series today, but my final post isn’t quite ready. I’ve received a bunch of questions asking how students can save money in college, so here’s a link about How I Had Fun In College and Didn’t Go Broke. There are lots of money-saving ideas, which are good for students and non-students!


  1. Yum, these look awesome! I just made a recipe for whole wheat cookies that had dark chocolate chips, chopped almonds and dried cherries. I agree, no cookie is all that healthy (especially when you eat 5!) but these look pretty dang good in their own right:) Love your blog!

  2. These look way amazing – I always struggle with the right proportions when I switch a recipe from white flour to wheat! I can’t wait to try it (after the sugar detox, of course)!

  4. I made these with vanilla extract and real egg whites. The batter was extremely sticky. It was impossible to roll the dough prior to placing on the cookie sheet so I just dropped it on. The dough does not taste good, but the cookies were delicious right out of the oven. I am glad the dough didn’t taste good because I usually eat so much dough that I don’t want the cookies. Thanks for the great recipe.
