So, for some reason, I thought that with this diet, I would lose my sweets. So not true! Today, Ben and I made whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. The website that I got the recipe from is :
Wow, they are really good. One note, make sure you read it all before starting. I didn’t see the recommendation to refrigerate the dough after mixing until after one cookie sheet went into the oven, though those cookies were still yummy! I also put the stick of butter in my microwave on defrost for 2 minutes. It still worked fine. The batch didn’t make many, so if you are making them to take somewhere, you might want 2 batches. I am already planning on making them again and instead of baking them, freezing them to pull out a couple here and there. So, all you need to do is mix up the dough. then put the cookie dough on to a cookie sheet (as the balls of dough). Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for a few hours. Once the dough has hardened, you can take it off the cookie sheet and put it in a freezer bag. Now you have homemade whole wheat chocolate chip cookie dough waiting for any occasion in your freezer. Add a couple minutes to the baking time and you are set. Enjoy!
