We need cookies to celebrate the new Chocolate & Carrots!
These cookies are chewy and deeeeelicious. Don’t even ask how much butter they’re made with. Just eat them…in moderation.
I’ve been holding these cookies out on you guys for a couple months now. This was actually the first recipe I made and photographed when we moved back to Charleston. I just love this rustic baking sheet that my mother-in-law has. I may have to take it with me when we move out and buy her a new one. Fair trade, right?
Anyway. These cookies are delicious and quite decadent. But, since we’re celebrating, I figured we could splurge a little bit with a little butter.
I need another one!
Whole Wheat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
slightly adapted from Baker By Nature
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt
- 15 tablespoons salted butter, divided
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together.
- In a sauce pan over medium high heat, cook 8 tablespoons of the butter, whisking constantly until the butter has browned. This will happen fast once hot enough. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 7 tablespoons of butter until melted.
- Stir in the brown sugar, sugar and vanilla until combined.
- Quickly beat in the eggs, only for 30 seconds until just combined. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 minutes. Then, beat the egg mixture again for another 30 seconds.
- Carefully fold in the flour mixture until the flour just blends in. Fold in all the chocolate chips.
- Scoop by the 2-3 tablespoons and place on the baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges and tops are light brown. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then cool completely on a cooling rack.
