Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband and I hosted our neighborhood’s first Home Owners Association meeting last night. I decided that it would be nice to provide some snack foods for our neighbors, one of which included these soft, sweet and healthy makeover of the classic chocolate chip cookie! They go fast, so I made enough for Logan to bring to work to share with his amazing coworkers as a Friday treat!

  1. Hiii Caroline! Sam (Ingram), here. Love your blog & all the amazing looking recipes! I became vegetarian this year & since a lot of your recipes are very veggie-oriented, I’m def. going to have to try some of them. Anyways, thought you should check out this blog called Framed (if you haven’t already begun following it)…lots of desserts! For instance, this chocolate banana bites idea looks AWESOME http://framed-mylifeonepictureatatime.blogspot.com/2010/05/banana-bites.html

    1. Awesome! I love the look of Framed! I will definitely be following it. Thank you! I’ll try to continue to post majority vegetarian meals (since I only eat white meat, fish, and everything a vegetarian eats…I guess you’d call me Flexitarian)!

  2. These look amazing! I’m gonna make ’em this week! I LOVE this site, you and logan did an awesome job on it!! Love you and hope you recover okay!!
