I know you are thinking "whole wheat cookies.....?" Yeah I made them! It was honestly b/c I only had 1/4 cup regular flour and already started mixing the butter and sugar. I was pleasantly surprised how well they turned out. There are only subtle differences between them and ones made with white flour, but it doesnt really matter b/c they are good and healthier then cookies made with all purpose flour. I didnt add the nuts to mine but like cheese nuts make just about everything dessert taste better. I hope you enjoy!


  1. these came out great. i accidently ate the last four in about three seconds when no one was looking last night.

  2. um...the only reason you are confessing to this is b/c I caught you in mid chew balling up and trying to dispose of the empty bag of cookies!! I still think there were 6 in the bag!

  3. bag of cookies? you sure you didn't BUY these?

    how much healthier are they vs. "regular" cookies? any idea?
