Why You Will Love Them

Easy – The recipe below is easy to follow and mix together. I keep all these ingredients on hand so theycan be whipped up in less than 10 minutes. It is also easy to double this recipe and bake for a crowd.

Delicious – These cookies are especially delicious! The natural sugar and freshly milled wheat give it richer flavor. The milk chocolate really sets it apart from other chocolate chip cookies. Because of the sweetness of the milk chocolate, this recipe calls for less sugar than other recipes.

By using unprocessed ingredients like sucanat sugar, you not only get more flavor but it satisfies like only real nutrition can.

Equipment Needed

Not much is needed for basic cookies but I have a few things that make easier. I only cook if it is easy and also don’t like a lot of gadgets so the equipment I use here is reused in many recipes in my kitchen to keep it simple, quick and easy.

**I make a small commission at no cost to you for purchases made through the following links. I ONLY recommend items I actually use and believe in.**

Electric Mixer – For years I exclusively used a hand held mixer but now, since multitasking even more, I mostly use my stand mixer. Both are Kitchen Aid brand since I learned they have the best motors. In over 20 years of heavy use, neither motor has broken (unlike the many, many hand mixers that constantly broke in my home growing up)!

Rubber Spatula Scraper – A must for getting the last bits of dough out of the bowl.

Cookie Sheet – I switched to air insulated cookie sheets years ago and will never go back. These pans prevent the bottoms of the cookies from burning and lead to more evenly cooked cookies. They are far superior any other cookie sheet, even the heavy duty type.

Cookie Dough Scooper – This scooper is an extra, as a spoon and your finger or another spoon will do but it makes it easy, has less clean up, and makes evenly sized and shaped cookies. It is one of my secrets to being able to quickly whip up a batch of homemade cookies.

Spatula – I bought these “fish spatulas” a few years ago and they ended up being so good that I never use my old ones. They are a thin but sturdy metal that easily lifts food cleanly off the pan. These are some of my most useful kitchen tools.

Wire Cooling Racks – A must for cookies! These cool cookies evenly and are easy to store afterwards.

Ingredients

Flour – I used only freshly milled flour so it retains all of its nutritional benefits and is lower gluten. Sometimes I grind the flour a few days ahead and store in my freezer. It oxides more slowly and still maintains most nutrients and is SUPER easy this way.

Baking Soda

Salt – I use “Real Salt” which is an unrefined ancient sea salt.

Butter/Margarine – I use “yogurt butter” which is the layer of fat on the top of my homemade yogurt. It does really well in baked goods!

Natural Sugar – I only use unprocessed sugars and try to lessen them as much as possible yet still taste delish. My sugar if choice for cookies is sucanat. It has a rich taste similar to brown sugar but better for you.

Pure Vanilla Extract

Eggs

Milk chocolate chips or cut up chunksThese makes the cookies taste SO much better than the typical semi-sweet chips.
