Family Food: Whole Wheat Chocolate Cookies

These whole wheat chocolate cookies are my toddler’s favourite baked goods of the moment. I serve them to him plain. But CH likes them with Amedei’s chocolate-hazelnut cream, Nutella, or a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. I like that these cookies are crisp and burst with the full flavour of cocoa. I’ve kept them mildly sweet and added a generous pinch of salt for contrast on the palate so that they work well with an attention-grabbing filling. But I do genuinely enjoy these whole wheat chocolate cookies unadorned. Especially when they’re washed down with a glass of cold milk.

I must confess that I just adore the clean lines and uniformity of rolled cookies. They’re also perfect for making cookies in fun shapes for my little one. The dough may be a little fiddly to work with, but the results are well worth the effort. I often bake only half a batch and keep the second portion of dough frozen until we need another batch of freshly baked whole wheat chocolate cookies. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
