Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

We all love chocolate chip cookies right?  Well I decided to make them a bit healthier, by eliminating the processed, all-purpose flour.  Don’t run away, they still have butter and sugar!!  I promise, they are delicious!

I used the “Pastry” setting on my Wonder Mill Grain Mill to create a super-fine, whole wheat pastry flour.

I am still learning the ins and outs of baking with whole wheat flour in traditional recipes, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect.  I used my regular Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and substituted the pastry flour for the all-purpose flour.

These cookies are a bit thinner than usual, but they are also softer, which I really like.  They do have more texture than regular chocolate chip cookies, but the whole wheat adds a nice, almost nutty flavor.  I do not normally add nuts to my chocolate chip cookies, so I did not add them to these cookies either.  Feel free to add them if you wish, I think next time I will. ;)

I have had so much for with this grain mill challenge.  I love being able to grind fresh flour as I need it.  I am really excited to find some other grains to try out in the future!

  Grain Mill Wagon Experience
I had so much fun with this Grain Mill Wagon Challenge! Using freshly ground wheat fits in perfectly with my desire to prepare healthy, clean baked good for my family and readers of my blog. Now that I feel like a pro using my WonderMill grain mill, I am excited to try new, and different grains. It could not be easier to use, and the results are amazing. If you do not have a WonderMill, you are missing out on fabulously fresh baked goods.
