Brrrr! It’s been so cold here in Georgia with our freak ice storm this last week. All I wanted to do was stay inside and drink coffee and bake cookies….so that’s what we did! This super easy chocolate chip cookie recipe is perfect for mixing up when you get stranded in the house with just the basics to work with.

Kevin was thankfully able to be home this week to help me get the house wrapped up and then this storm sent everyone else home for 2 days. Which means that Michael and Leah have been here pretty much all week hanging out with us. It’s going to be so hard to leave those two behind here. One of these days we will get them moved out on the west coast….I keep telling myself it’s just a matter of time.

Michael had brought his 3 wheeler over and in one fell swoop Noah was introduced to his first snow and his first “cycle”. He loved it! All he has talked about for days has been “Michael cycle”.

We were out of real chocolate chips so we substituted some M & M’s instead. When I say “we” I really mean it. Somehow me making cookies turned into me cleaning the kitchen while Leah made cookies. I’ve decided that all cooking should be done with a cleaning assistant, particularly in a small house where your workspace can easily go from organized to overwhelmingly cluttered in mere moments. It was so nice!

These cookies are wonderful, they are super simple and easy to mix together and with the additional whole wheat flour, they aren’t so sugary that you get a headache after eating one. I love my mom’s chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe but they require grinding the oatmeal into flour which was problematic since my blender is already in Oregon.

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour I highly recommend King Arthur flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or M & M’s, Reese’s chips, etc
  • 1 cup nuts


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375.
    2. Cream butter and sugars.
    3. Mix in eggs and vanilla.
    4. Sprinkle salt, powder, and soda over wet ingredients. Combine.
    5. Add dry mix one to two cups at a time.
    6. Add chocolate chips and nuts.
    7. Bake 10-13 minutes. They will look very wet still if you want them moist and chewy. If you cook til they look dry they will be crunchier.
    8. Let rest on baking sheet til setup and then transfer to a paper towel-lined tray to finish cooling.
