Jen's Organic Chocolate Chip Cookies...

I was tired of all of the extra junk in fun foods.
Why can't fun foods be good? So when I stuff my face with 3 a day I don't have to feel guilty?
I have to admit. I loooooooove my sweets. This recipe came about after tweaking and trying and realizing my store bought cookies, as sad as it is, were really bad for me.

I promise you'll love it and it's yummy enough and good enough to eat for breakfast sometimes (Did I say that out loud?). Your kids will never know it has whole wheat. Plus chocolate comes from a tree so technically, it's a fruit.
I prefer to use almost all-organic ingredients. The only non-organic part is the chocolate chips and the vanilla. You can also make this with conventional ingredients with no problem.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil ( yep EVOO)
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
3/4cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup white flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips.

I'm lazy
I forgo the traditional creaming and throw it all in a bowl together as I assemble it.
It will be a bit wetter than regular cookie dough, but you need it for the whole wheat part.

Spoon it onto baking sheets in a with a teaspoon and bake for about 10-12 minutes. Since it has whole wheat you don't want it dark brown because they will be dried out.
A very light golden brown is perfect.

Let cool.

To keep them fresh in your cookie jar, throw a piece of bread in there. It really works to soften your cookies.

Then enjoy.. for breakfast. :)
