Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Seriously I have majorly been slacking, I know! I have missed keeping up with all of you fellow bloggers! I mentioned last week that we have been busy lately, but we really have been so busy!  Between looking for a new place to live in Dallas and Houston, finally deciding to stay in Houston, and celebrating my husbands birthday over the weekend, these are just a few of the many things that we have been up to.  I haven't had much time to spend in the kitchen at all!  To be honest it was a nice break for awhile, not cooking everyday, but now I have gotten WAY out of routine and I am trying my hardest to get it back together.  So bare with me, I hope to get back on track and start posting more often.  

However right before we left for Dallas, I whipped up a batch of these cookies, not sure how they would turn out cause I have never used whole wheat flour in cookies, and I must say they were DELICIOUS! I honestly can say that they are right up there with my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies!  I snagged this recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe and I am so glad that I did.  These cookies are seriously a must try! 


*Makes about 4 dozen cookies
1 ¼ cups brown sugar
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 ¼ cups butter
3 eggs
1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups white wheat flour
2 ½ cups oats 
(you can use either rolled oats or quick oats – I prefer the texture of quick oats in this recipe)
2 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars together. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Stir in dry ingredients and mix well, then stir in chocolate chips. Scoop rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto greased (or lined) baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
