Wholegrain Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I was hoping to post a few more recipes over the weekend, my calendar was finally free after endless social engagements over the holiday season. However, mother nature had other plans and I found myself bedridden with the flu. Fortunately I was feeling much better this morning, and my symptoms had been replaced by a serious yearning for chocolate chip cookies… Strange I know, but the body wants what it wants, and I had to oblige.

I try and use whole foods wherever possible, including baking, so these cookies are made with wholewheat pastry flour and oats. The wholewheat pastry flour has a lovely nutty taste that pairs very well with the chocolate and oats, and the coconut oil keeps the cookies very moist and very chewy for days- delish!

They make for a pretty hearty and satisfying cookie, I hope you enjoy them!

I adapted this recipe from the fabulous Monique who writes the Ambitious Kitchen blog. My friend Jenny and I made the original recipe in a little bake session before Christmas, and they are wonderful.
