Whole Grain/Reduced Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have reduced sugar, wheat germ, and wheat flour.  My kids love them.  This recipe makes 18 cookies (average size).  I use all organic ingredients, free range eggs, & fair trade organic chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350. 

1 Stick Unsalted Butter (8 TBSP)
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Table Salt
1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Wheat Germ

In a small pan, melt butter.  In mixer, cream together sugars, butter, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt (about 2 minutes).  In a separate bowl, mix wheat and all purpose flours, and wheat germ.  You can mix with a fork or a whisk, this will work as if you were using a sifter. Add flour mixture to mixing bowl with wet mixture.  Add in 3 batches, scraping sides of bowl in between with a rubber spatula.  When all flour mixture is incorporated, add chocolate chips. 

Drop cookies on baking sheet with cookie dough baller or tablespoon, 9 per pan.  Bake for 3-4 minutes and rotate pan in oven.  Cook for another 3-4 minutes.  My kids like their cookies a little doughy so, I pull them out when they are golden on edges and light in the middle.  You can adjust your baking time.  If you like them crisp, cook for an additional 3-5minutes.  Remove from oven, allow to rest for one minute, remove from pan and place on cooling rack.
