The traditional chocolate chip cookie is the standard, the classic, the cookie of all cookies. Well, the perfect accompaniment to a glass of cold milk, just got a make over! I have been experimenting in the kitchen with integrating healthier, superfood, ingredients into my baking. These super chocolate chip cookies are a nutritional twist on the original. They include whole wheat flour, raw sugar, oats, dark chocolate, and flaxseed…yes, don’t reread that, it was flaxseed!
What is the flavor of flaxseed anyway? Kind of nutty. Seedy I suppose. This ultimate super food doesn’t disrupt the flavor of the cookie at all. It’s kind of like the idea of sneaking vegetables into your kid’s food by disguising them with other flavors. Whatever works, right?
Not to my un-liking, I have eaten many types of chocolate chip cookies. I like to think of myself as sort of a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur. I can proudly say that these super cookies have my favorite kind of cookie texture – crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
I have been experimenting with a few other “better for you” baking recipes. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these cookies…I sure did!
