"Healthy Version" 1

Who doesn't enjoy a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie? Here's a recipe that uses whole wheat flour instead of refined white flour. My sister Hannah made these yesterday and they were delicious.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies:

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 cup oats
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine softened butter and sugars. Beat for 3 minutes or until fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing together well. Next add in flour, salt, soda, and oats. Lastly fold in chocolate chips and nuts.
Scoop rounded tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Chocolate chip cookies with dark chocolate coming up so stay tuned!

Is there a way of doing this and substituting the sugars?

I, too, have enjoyed the Sue Gregg cookbooks, but have reached a point in my life that requires downsizing my library. If you know anyone who might be interested in a slightly used set of Sue Gregg's "Principles and Skills in Wholesome Food Preparation: A Practical Course in Family Nutrition" which includes the course manual, boxed set of (9) videos, (7) cookbooks, master index, recipe organizer, and "The 15 Minute Meal Planner", please let me know.
