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 🙂
- 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)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with either Silpats or parchment paper.
- In a bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sift using a fork or sifter, if you have.
- Combine butter and both sugars in a mixer bowl. Beat on low until blended.
- Add the eggs, one at a time. Then add the vanilla extract.
- At low speed, gradually add the flour mixture.
- 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.
7. Shape the cookies using your hands and pop into the oven.
8. Cook for about 13-15 minutes.
