Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just baked a batch of these yesterday for practice and not a single one is left to take a picture of! I developed this recipe to include a lot of organic alternatives. These cookies come out big, soft and never too sweet. They have always been a hit.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Large mixing bowl
Wire whisk
Ungreased cookie sheets
Wooden spoon or baking spatula
Cookie scoop or teaspoon
Cooling rack

1 cup butter or margarine, melted in the microwave
3/4 cup organic sugar
2 cage free eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups organic whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups organic semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

Mixing Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
2. Melt butter in the microwave (about 40 seconds on high)
3. In a large bowl whisk together butter and sugar until creamy
4. Beat two eggs until fluffy, then whisk well into the butter& sugar mix
5. Add pure vanilla extract to the mix and whisk again
6. Sift in the flour one cup at a time, mixing well throughout w/ spatula
7. Sift in the last bit of flour and baking soda, mix until smooth
8. Mix in chocolate chips (you can substitute any kind of chip)
9. Mix applesauce into the dough, mix until evenly distributed
10. Place cookie dough by the heaping teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie for expansion

Baking Directions:
1. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. They may seem a bit soft, but will firm up as they cool.
2. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. Share and Enjoy!
