Whole Wheat Cookies. I know the word “wheat” can feel like a bad word lately. And I totally understand that some people stay away from gluten-containing foods for health reasons, but for those of us still consuming wheat, whole wheat is in fact a good option for baking. It boosts the fiber content of your baked goods and adds a nice hearty texture too. You are getting about 12 more grams of fiber per cup of flour when you use whole wheat versus all-purpose flour. 4g vs 16g. (Comparing Bob’s Red Mill varieties.)
I also find that when I use whole wheat flours, my baked goods (which are always vegan/egg-free) have a bit more oomph in terms of texture and body. And I love that.
Some people think ‘whole wheat’ baked goods have to be grainy or dry. Well these cookies are definitely not grainy or dry! They are fluffy, chewy and delicious.
