The best chocolate chip cookies

This is my absolute favorite cookie recipe. This is originally from here, but i’ve tweaked it just a bit when testing it out..

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp coarse sea salt
2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
6 oz dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
1 cup rolled oats
if desired: 1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. In a bowl, with an electric mixer (if possible), beat butter two minutes. Add sugars and beat two more minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Beat in vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together first five ingredients. Set aside. With the mixer on low, add in flour mixture just until incorporated. Remove bowl from mixer and use a wooden spoon to fold in chocolate and oats. Drop one to two inch round onto cookie sheets, an inch apart. Bake 7-10 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove and let sit on cooling rack.

Thank you Dear Avocado for this delicious recipe that is consistently gobbled by whomever I share them with…

Banana, oat, peanut cookies

Lack of a grocery run lead us to me frantically scouring our fridge to see what type of cookies we could possibly make- thus, vegan cookies became part of my baking repertoire (which I’d hardly call a *repertoire*…). Regardless, I’m totally a fan! While they look a little messy (they are), a little chunk-a-licious (and chunk, they do), they taste absolutely delicious- and we didn’t even add cups of sugar, eggs, or milk…I’m still trying to add it all up (does that say a lot?…perhaps). It satisfied our sweet tooth and that’s all that matters!
