Basic WholeWheat Chocolate Chip Cookie

Does whole wheat baking exited you?! I try to use wholewheat flour as much as I can in baking. Recently I ventured out in classic chocolate chip cookie with wholewheat flour. A basic whole wheat chocolate chip cookie has sugar, flour, butter, eggs and chocolate chips.


If you have kids and reluctant to give the maida/all purpose flour cookies/biscuits then you will love this recipe. It surely is a keeper. I have made jumbo size cookies so even one ? is enough with a glass of milk.


Things to note before making basic WholeWheat chocolate chip cookies-

  • These cookies a slightly chewy, soft inside with a firm texture outside.
  • I have poked a lot of chocolate chips on the outside before baking.
  • While baking the Cookies won’t brown much. To check done-ness simply lift the cookie and look for golden brown.
  • The cookie is heavier than its maida/all purpose flour counterpart.
  • The sugar measurement in recipe is normal sweetness. Add less or more according to the sweetness you prefer.
  • If making egg less version use curd which is not too watery or too thick. Normal pouring consistency is good. Also make sure your curd is fresh.
