Wheat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies


A few months ago, my good friend introduced me, to now, one of my favorite food blogs, 101 Cookbooks. She is a health fanatic with a hilarious weak spot for dessert. She was coming around, so I decided to throw something together within 30 minutes. I found an inspiring recipe, with all the right ingredients at hand, adapted it and reduced the amount. It was the right amount of chew and crunch, with the caramelized smell of brown butter and sugar; this turned out to be one of the best cookies I have ever had. 100% healthy and delicious. *Note: Cooking the butter brings out the nutty butter fragrance and also gives the cookies that extra chewiness. Wheat germ, whole-wheat flour can be substituted with unbleached all-purpose flour, though the toasty wheat-germ has that nutty, grainy texture- and high nutritional value. Nuts, banana chips, chocolate chips can also be substituted with other ingredients of your liking.

What you will need

3/4 cup +2 tablespoons of whole-wheat flour

1/4 cup wheat germ, toasted

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon table salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 large egg, beaten lightly

1 teaspoon vanilla

5 tablespoons banana chips, chopped

5 tablespoons walnuts, toasted and chopped
