Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate has antioxidants. Whole wheat flour is more nutritious than white. Butter is dairy, egg is protein, and sugar...um...sugar is just what makes whole wheat chocolate chip cookies a sweet start to your week.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup granulated sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup butter, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 egg 2 cups whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cups mini chocolate chips (I like mini, but regular chocolate chips are okay, of course!)

Heat oven to 375ºF. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
