4.8 from 31 reviews

Warm and chewy chocolate chip cookies made with whole wheat flour and baked to perfection. You’ll be making these homemade cookies on repeat!


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda, and set aside.
  2. Add the softened butter into a mixer’s bowl. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Refrigerate dough for one hour or overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375F, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Scoop the chilled dough onto the baking sheets and transfer it to the center shelf of the oven. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and the cookies have solid edges (the centers will be soft). Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool down completely.
  6. Bake any remaining cookies, allow to cool down completely before storing in an airtight container.



Double or triple the recipe, and freeze uncooked dough for future baking.
