Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Since attending the Western Culinary Institute cooking became a part of me. I am not one to follow a recipe, so writing a recipe for others to follow is another skillset I continue to practice. Sometimes I have to make recipes multiple times and then sometimes they come together perfectly. This Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is one that intuitively came together beautifully, inspired by my Oma's chocolate chip cookies.

Honestly, this is my favorite recipe to date, because I wrote it and my son followed the recipe to make cookies for his girlfriend. It's these special moments that I savor to my deepest core. I will probably be 90 looking at him remembering this day. He took such care and put so much love into making these cookies, you could feel it. We baked on his last day with us for his spring break before heading back to his other home in Washington. Though I miss him terribly, writing this post is bringing me so much joy. Jarren, I love you!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Whole wheat pastry flour is a great flour option for chocolate chip cookies. Most kids won't even be able to tell they are eating a whole wheat cookie 🍪 This recipe is simple but does require 30 minutes for the dough to chill.


1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
1/2 cup organic raw cane sugar (regular sugar can be substituted)
3/4 cup organic brown cane sugar (regular brown sugar can be substituted)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1-2 cups mini chocolate chips


Into a stand mixer or large bowl, add the softened butter and beat for two minutes, scraping sides as needed, until butter begins to turn a pale yellow. Add the sugars and vanilla extract. Beat for 5 minutes, stopping and scraping sides as needed. Add the eggs one at a time, beating them into the mixture until combined.

Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl, and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add your dry ingredients half a cup at a time. Turn off the stand mixer or hand mixer and scrape down the sides; repeat until all dry ingredients are combined into the dough, and you cannot see any streaks of white.

Gently fold in mini chocolate chips until combined throughout the dough.

Cover the cookie dough and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350˚ will the cookie dough chills.

Prepare your cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.

Bake cookies with at least two inches in between, about six cookies per sheet pan. These cookies will spread and puff up a little. I bake one to two sheet pans at a time.
