Chocolate Chip Cookies

We were told once that you can’t make healthy cookies or cakes with natural ingredients.  It was too late . . .we took recipes from our past and just exchanged the white flour for whole wheat, the salt for sea salt, the butter substitute with REAL butter and we reduced the sugar and subbed in a natural, mineral rich sugar.  We also use farm fresh eggs and dark cacao chips and the result is delicious and definitely a better for you option than anything we made before.

Yields 3 dozen cookies


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup Organic sugar  (sucanat)
  • 2 organic pastured eggs
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 3 cups freshly milled whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1—9oz pkg organic Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup organic chopped nuts (optional)


  1. preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. combine flour, baking soda, sea salt and set aside
  3. cream together sugars and butter until smooth
  4. beat in eggs
  5. add vanilla
  6. blend in flour mixture 
  7. fold in chocolate chips and nuts
  8. drop rounded spoonfuls of batter on prepared baking sheets
  9. bake 9-12 minute or until edges are nicely golden brown (err on the side of undercooking as they will cook a bit more after coming out of the oven)
  10. cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely
  11. best with a glass of fresh cold milk (straight from a farm!)
