Using whole wheat flour for cookies not only tastes amazing, but paired with other lighter ingredients it makes the most delicious healthier chocolate chip cookie.

Since whole wheat flour can sometimes be drier, we are using a blend of unsalted butter and my secret ingredient (applesauce) to make sure these cookies stay soft on the inside.
How to make whole wheat chocolate chip cookies
Step 1: whisk together the dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda.
Step 2: Cream together the cane sugar, brown sugar, softened butter, applesauce, and vanilla extract.
Add the eggs and beat well.
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients slowly to the batter, until combined. Fold in the rolled oats and chocolate chips.
Step 4: Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet, then bake at 350 degrees for around 12 – 15 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool, then store leftovers in an airtight container and enjoy within 2 – 3 days.
