Ingredients for Whole Wheat Soft Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

This easy homemade chocolate chip cookie recipe has only available ingredients, but it's important to use them all.

Butter - Melt the butter, then let it come to room temperature. It's important to really melt the butter completely so that there aren't any visible pieces of butter left. Also, make sure to only use room temperature melted butter in this recipe.

Sugar - In this recipe, we are using both regular white sugar and packed light brown sugar. We LOVE Billington's Light Muscavado sugar (not sponsored), makes these cookies extra tasty and brings that amazing aroma to the batter. If you can't find it at your local store, you can use any other high-quality brown sugar as well.

Eggs - There's no substitute for eggs, the eggs hold everything together.

Salt - Nope, don't worry, the cookies won't be salty at all. Salt only makes them tastier and richer.

Baking powder - So that the cookies can grow and spread when in the oven.

Flour - We used both all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. It makes the cookies even richer, more decadent and chewier.

Chocolate chip - Use milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips. You could also use chopped chocolate.

METHOD

  • butter and sugar

    In a large bowl mix together melted butter (at room temperature), packed light brown sugar and regular white sugar using an electric mixer. Mix for about 3 minutes on medium speed.

  • eggs and vanilla

    Add the eggs and vanilla essence (or vanilla seeds) to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until just combined, for a few seconds. Make sure not to overwork the mixture.

  • add the dry ingredients

    Add all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined, for a few seconds. Make sure not to overwork the mixture. Add the chocolate chips and stir until combined using a spatula.

  • cookies

    Fill the ice cream scoop with dough, scrape the excess off by using the edge of the bowl, and just press and release onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper. You should get around 22 cookies. Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes or in a fridge for 30 minutes.

  • bake and serve

    Lightly press each cookie dough onto your prepared large baking sheet. Make sure to leave enough space between each cookie, because they will spread. Place in preheated oven and bake for 9 - 11 minutes at 175 °C / 350 °F. It's super important not to overbake the cookies or they won't be as soft and gooey as they should be. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

    Tip
    If you won't bake all the cookies at once, you can freeze the cookie dough for up to 60 days.
