Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

My good ol’ standby recipe:
Vegan or non-vegan
These are great because you can’t tell one bit that they are whole wheat, they taste fantastic.  The best part is they don’t look whole wheat so no one has to know!
Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter or vegan butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg or flax egg (1 TB ground flax seeds + 3 TB water)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup oats (ground or whole)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips (70%)

Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 min
Depending on your oven
You can crank out about 14 cookies, varies with size

Egg replacement to create a vegan recipe:
1 TB ground flax + 3 TB water = 1 egg

For vegan- mix flax and water until slightly thickened and all the flax is soaked up

Cream the butter and sugars together, add the egg (or flax seed mixture), and vanilla
Sift the flour and oats (if are powdered), baking powder, baking soda, and salt
Add the chocolate chips, I just add however much I’m feeling!

For the oats, you can either add them whole (the instant oats are best), grind them all into a powder for flour, use oat flour that’s packaged, or go half and half (grind half the oats and leave half whole)

Variations:
Sprinkle or grind sea salt atop each cookie before baking
Use a fancy dark chocolate bar roughly chopped
Add a touch of caramel to dough or a dark chocolate caramel bar
