Chocolate Chip Cookies: 100% Whole Wheat Flour
 
These are our heartiest chocolate chip cookies, thanks to Bob’s Red Mill Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour. Packing earthy whole wheat flavor and a robust protein content for plenty of chew, these cookies bake at a higher temperature than others. Make sure you check the bottoms of the cookies, not the tops, for signs of doneness.

Makes about 26 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (220 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (100 grams), room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons (8 grams) vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (375 grams) Bob’s Red Mill Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) kosher salt
  • 1 cup (170 grams) 46% cacao semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (150 grams) 66% cacao roughly chopped dark chocolate
  • Garnish: flaked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars at medium speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Beat in chocolate chips and chopped chocolate just until combined. Using a 3-tablespoon spring-loaded scoop, scoop dough (about 50 grams each), and place on prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Press dough balls into 2¼-inch disks, making sure edges are even. Place at least 2 inches apart on prepared pans.
  6. Bake until bottom edges are golden, 8 to 12 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt, if desired.
