Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Do NOT let the name fool you -- these cookies are not healthy! But they are so good I have baked at least 100 batches (one batch yields 4 dozen large cookies or 6 dozen small).
2 c canola oil1 ½ c brown sugar1 ½ c white sugar3 large eggs1 ½ T vanilla1 T baking soda1 t baking powder1 t salt2 c whole wheat flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill brand.)2 c white flour3 c quick oats¾ c chocolate chips (I use Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate chips.)½ c chocolate chunks (I use the Scharffen Berger.)
In a stand mixer, combine oil and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla until ingredients are just combined. Add baking powder, soda, and salt, then mix just a bit more. Add flours and mix. Add oatmeal and mix. Add chocolate and mix on a slow speed -- the bowl will be very full, but only getting one pan dirty is worth the risk. Cover the bowl with a clean towel to avoid spills and messes!
Cover large baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat. Using a large ice cream scoop, place the dough on the baking sheets and bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes, until light brown and a bit underdone (for a convection oven, bake on 350 for 10 minutes). If you need the recipe to make more cookies, use a small ice cream scoop and bake for 5 minutes (or for 6 minutes in a convection oven). The cookies will appear undercooked, but will turn out soft and delicious! Also, this dough freezes really well.
