These are not the classic chewy chocolate chip cookies. These are crumbly, delicious, quick, super addictive, and how I like mine. The crumblier and fatter, the better!
Dont let the not so visible chocolate chips in the pictures fool you. There are like a double layer of choc chips in most of these. There are so many chips in some that the flour barely holds them together ;) Now that is what I call a "Chocolate chip" cookie.
For a Glutenfree version see this Millet Almond Choc chip cookie.
In the name of chocolatey goodness! With the least processed ingredients, limited fat.

The all whole wheat cookies below.
One batch is made with home milled Whole wheat flour(throw some soft white Wheat berries in a Blendtec or other powerful blender:)), and another batch with regular organic Whole wheat flour and a portion substituted with 1/4 cup almond flour.
The crumblier ones in the pictures are with added almond flour.
Thats the chilled dough below. Very crumbly and full of whole grain goodness!
Make them flat cookies. The warmth from your hands will help get the dough together. Keep the preheated oven ready to bake right after all the cookies are shaped.
Ingredients: Makes 12 medium fat cookies
2 teaspoons flaxmeal
1 Tablespoon hot water
1 Tablespoon vanilla almond milk (Or a few drops vanilla extract + 1 Tablespoons water/non dairy milk)
1 Tbsp agave/maple syrup
1 Tbsp coconut oil (almost melted)
1 Tbsp organic canola oil
2.5 Tablespoons ground raw sugar( 3 Tbsp for sweeter)
pinch of salt
3/4 cup whole wheat flour ( or 1/2 cup ww and 1/4 cup almond flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking power
1/3+ cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a bowl, add hot water, almond milk, flaxmeal and agave.
Whisk until well combined.
Add the oils and raw sugar, salt, whisk for a minute until well combined. Let sit for 2 minutes.
Whisk again for a few seconds.
Mix the baking powder in the wheat flour.
Add the flour and mix with a spoon or hand. you might have to knead it a bit for the oils to combine well with the flour. If the dough is wet, add a few teaspoons more flour.
Add the chocolate chips, knead to distribute.
Chill the dough for 15 minutes.
The dough will feel crumbly, but will come together when pressed and will smooth out a bit with the warmth of the hands. Some cracks are fine.
Make flat balls. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake in preheated 350 degrees F for 13-14 minutes.
Cool, consume and if possible, leave some for hubbs!
