Looking for softer whole wheat chocolate chip cookies? King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour produces superior results in delicate baked goods that are typically weighed-down, hard, or dry when using whole wheat flours. We don’t eat dessert much anymore, so when we do it has to be worth it. Although whole wheat is better than processed white flour, it is still dessert, so I wouldn’t exactly call these “healthy”, but rather a step in the right direction.
To make ahead, freeze the dough for fresh cookies in just minutes, or you can even freeze the cookies once they are baked and cooled so there is always something on-hand for the impromptu picnic lunch or unexpected guests. Sometimes, my kids eat them right out of the freezer and let them defrost while they dip them in milk … oh yes, cookies have always been good friends with milk.
