I have a little thing for chocolate chip cookies.
I haven’t made any for myself in a while. But when the coupon for Nestle chocolate chips showed up in the newspaper last night, I just couldn’t help it. I had to buy a bag!
As I was preparing the batter, I thought to myself, ‘If I’m really going to make these, I might as well “healthify” them. Right!!??!! Toss in some whole wheat and some flaxseed.” Justify. Justify.
Chocolate Chip Cookies – Healthified

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 cup white flour
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1-2 cups of chocolate chips (I will not lie. I used 2 cups!)
- In KitchenAid, or in bowl using hand mixer, combine butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
- In medium bowl, combine and mix baking soda, salt, wheat flour, white flour and ground flaxseed.

Never mind the butter. Or the sugar. We’ll just pretend they’re not in there! These are really healthy cookies 😉
