Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Do you ever get in the mood for cookies so bad that even though it’s 10 o’clock at night, you HAVE to make them???

Please, tell me I’m not the only one…

Well, this is one of those batches of cookies.

You know, there are lots of different types of cookies?

  • crunchy
  • chewy
  • soft
  • hard
  • crumbly
  • melt-in-your-mouth
  • thick
  • thin
  • moist
  • light
  • buttery
  • fudgy
  • dense
  • chunky

The list goes on and on.

I also know that everyone has a different idea of what the ‘perfect’ cookie is.

I’m a chewy, soft, thick, chunky type of cookie person.

This batch isn’t exactly my ‘perfect’ cookie, but they are chewy, crisp, thin, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Sounds pretty good to me!

….and they were. šŸ˜‰

What kind of cookie person are you?

  1. You are not the only, Caroline. I have late night cravings to. My perfect cookie is: any type of cookie! These thin crisp cookies look perfect for a light late night snack and they kind of beg me to put some banana slices between them for a choc. chip cookie banana sandwich for breakfast. šŸ™‚

  2. I just made these exact same cookies but with semi sweet chips on Wednesday. I gave one dozen to my neighbor for picking up my son from school, and we are 2 cookies away from finishing the dozen I kept behind. They were heavenly! I’d love to try the white choc version next time. Deelish.

  3. I stopped baking at midnight but lately i find myself plugging my mixer at 6 am. When you dream of cookies ….
    Speaking of cookies, these look amazing, my favorite cookie has to be chewy, buttery and melt in your mouth!
