Ingredients
Method
 
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (whole grains, whole wheat (bread and pastry), rye, graham, oats, and such)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt (sea salt w/minerals)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter (vegetable substitute , Earth Balance)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (1/2 cup whole sugar, natural)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar ( 1/2 cup whole, natural)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla ( or 2 tsp)
  • 2 eggs, or egg substitute ( ground flax seed)
  • 2 cups Chocolate chips, dark
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, figs, prunes, and such)
  • Oatmeal
  • Orange rind
  • Spices
Oven is at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine flours, baking soda, salt in a bowl. Beat butter, sugars (brown and white), (and I use less than called fo, about half), vanilla, tell creamy. Add eggs ( or egg substitute), and gradually add flour. I add at this point sometimes a table spoon of molasses, and Stivia for added sweetness if I feel the need. For the chocolate, nuts and chopped dried fruit, and oats, I chop them up in a blender. I add the rolled oats, then chocolate, nuts, and fruit, and chop/blend. A food processor would work also. I add more nuts sometimes and less chocolate, and adjust the fruit as well.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
When I make this recipe it has never been the same twice, so feel free to experiment with the different flours. I added about equal parts each, and added the pasty flour because it made a lighter cookie. The nut, fruit, mixture usually ends up to be about two cups, and the chocolate is about 1 cup.
During the holidays I added spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and also orange rind/vest. And you can try different things with this also, like adding lemon rind/zest.
And also Chia seeds as well as the Flax seeds, and rolled oats, as well as oat flour.
So enjoy ,try new things, and have fun!!
