Whole Grain Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have got this whole grain thing down!

Sorry, I could not help myself, can you tell I am pleased with my successes baking with whole wheat flour? And with that comment, I can now proceed with making our favorite foods anew with whole grains, specifically whole wheat flour. As I have complained about said before, it took awhile, but I have finally learned how to make delicious whole wheat bread and desserts that we love!

I was fairly timid in the beginning, coming up with new recipes to introduce my family to whole grain food, but once we enjoyed those new recipes it seemed a good idea to simply make our favorites, with whole grains. So I did. The results have been great and it is fun to make our favorite recipes to share once again, only in a whole grain formula.

And with that let me introduce you to...

Whole Grain Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

  5. I am embarrassed to say that I only recently had browned butter cookies...and they are AMAZING. I'd like to think that these are healthy since they have whole grains, especially since I would eat them all. Thanks for sharing on the Waste Less Wednesday blog hop.
