Can you tell which are which? Of course you can!
The cookies in the back are regular chocolate chip cookies.
The four cookies in the front are made with white whole wheat flour.
It's the same recipe, just with white whole wheat flour.
I didn't show the kids the regular cookies so they had nothing to compare them to - and not
one kid noticed anything different in the whole wheat cookies.
The only very minor change I made to the recipe was adding a 1/4 cup of water to the batter
because the dough was not sticking together well with the whole wheat flour.
This is the recipe with the new flour and the water:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
and 1/2 cup oil in the bowl of
a standing mixer.
Add in 1/2 tsp baking soda,
1 tsp salt
and 1 and 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour.
Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfull onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Allow to cool and offer to children, smiling on the inside. If you smile too much on the outside, they might know something was up.
