Chocolate Chip Cookies 

These are inspired by a recipe from Dorie Greespan – they may be the best chocolate cookies ever! I tried to make them a bit healthier by using oat and whole wheat flour, I also reduced the sugar. I think what makes them so magical is the ground almond meal! 

2 sticks of butter, room temp
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs, room temp
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 c oat flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 c almond flour or ground almond meal
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips

In a stand mixer beat the butter on medium high for 2 minutes. Add sugars and beat for 2 more minutes until light and fluffy. Beat eggs in one at a time. Beat in vanilla. 

In a large bowl whisk together all the remaining ingredients except the chips.

Mix into the wet ingredients in 3 – 4 batches. Stir in chips and chill for at least two hours.

Preheat oven to 350. 

Using a small cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop the dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 8- 10 minutes depending on cookie size. Let cool on pan for 5 min then completely on a rack.

Makes about 36 small cookies.
