Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Mashup

Mmm, chocolate chip cookies!  I make a lot of them, because if I make any other kind Kevin doesn't really eat them.  I wanted to try tweaking the whole wheat cookies I made, because there was too much oil flavour for my taste.  So I combined that recipe with the one I've been using for years and threw in some almonds, just for fun.  Here is the resulting recipe:

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies
  • 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 or 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or more, if you like, with less white flour)
  • 1-1/4 cup white flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips.
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  1. Mix butter, oil, and sugars.
  2. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add flours.  I usually mix it half a cup at a time.
  4. Mix in chocolate chips and almonds.
  5. Drop onto cookie sheet in whatever size cookie you like.  I usually try to make smallish ones.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes until just golden brown.  Don't over bake if you want chewy cookies.
