You're not dreaming....Here's two great ways to eat healthy cookies:
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
All ingredients can be purchased at a local natural food market.
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Ready in 32 minutes
Yield: 30 servings
1-1/2 cups Rapadura sugar
1 cup organic butter, softened
2 organic eggs
1 Tbsp. pure Vanilla extract
1/2 cup ground pecans (optional)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
2-1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 cups grain-sweetened chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the Rapadura and butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the vanilla, sea salt, and baking soda until well blended, then mix in the flour (and ground pecans). Do not overmix. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto un-greased baking sheets so they are two inches apart.
Bake for 12-12 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.
