Salted Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies With Orange Zest


So, two things: One, I never would have thought to be whole wheat flour in cookies. Like normally, I like white flour, white sugar and butter for my empty calories.


This may as well be a life changing cookie. The whole wheat flour gives it a nutty, amazing flavour like none other.

Two, I accidentally BURNT the bottom of these cookies. For reals.
So someone ( read: me) had changed the oven setting so that only the BOTTOM of the cookies bake.
So you can guess what happened after that.

I cried.

Then, I ate a cookie. Then, another one.
THEY ARE SO DARN TASTY. Even with the burnt bottom. Ohhhh, man. You have to make this. If there’s one thing you’ll bake this weekened. Let it be this.

( ps: I updated my about page!)


1 1/2 cups whole wheat
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 stick cold butter, cut into tiny pieces
1 egg
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts/almonds/more chocolate chips
1 tsp grated orange zest
Sea salt for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 180/350.
Stir the dry ingredients together, sifting out any large pieces if grain. In another bowl, cream together butter and sugars till combined, about 2 minutes.

Add the egg and beat again. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat on low till barely combined. Stir in the chocolate chips/nuts and zest. For large cookies, drop 1/3 cup mounds on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea sy and bake for 15-20 minutes or till golden brown.
