Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

During the last snow storm, my husband and I trekked to Walgreens for some extra water. While there I thought…cookies! But not pre-packaged and not the slice and bake cookie dough, I’m talking the old-fashioned kind, where you had to actually mix the ingredients! With a little thought and creativity, we created…Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies! These are sweet, yet hearty – hope you enjoy 🙂

 

You’ll need:

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (used Nestle brand)
  • ~10 fudge mint cookies, crushed (used Nice! Walgreens brand)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with either Silpats or parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sift using a fork or sifter, if you have.
  3. Combine butter and both sugars in a mixer bowl. Beat on low until blended.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time. Then add the vanilla extract.
  5. At low speed, gradually add the flour mixture.
  6. In a small, plastic baggy with a closure (ziploc), crush the fudge mint cookies with a rolling pin. Add to the dough mixture. Then, add the chocolate chips.  Mix to combine.
