What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.
|Ultimate Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies|

Most of the recipes you will find on this site are lower in sugar and added fat than conventional recipes. Not this one. Sometimes we deserve to be spoiled with richly decadent treats.
As you will learn if you try this recipe, richly decadent does not require using bleached and refined flour and sugar. Outstanding results are possible with white whole wheat flour and organic sugar. It takes some trial and error, but we've taken care of that step for you.
A version of this recipe was sent to me when I was 16 years old and living in Brazil. I became famous for my chocolate chip cookies, especially because chocolate chip cookies were an unknown treat at the time in Brazil. I know I'm dating myself.
In Brazil, not only could you not purchase a chocolate chip cookie, but you also could not purchase chocolate chips. I had to painstakingly chop a huge chocolate bar, go to a specialty store for the walnuts (only available certain times of the year), and then, to top it all off, I had to mix the entire recipe by hand. We didn't have an electric mixer.
It became an all day affair, but was it ever worth it! It has been my secret recipe for years. Not anymore! This updated version with whole grain flour and dark chocolate is so much better too!
