I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies (Karen Gilmore)

$5.23 ($0.07 per cookie; $0.87 per dozen)

Updated 2/27/15. Makes 6 dozen cookies.

3¼ c white wheat (makes 5 c flour)*
1¼ c butter
1 ½ c white sugar
1 ½ c brown sugar
4 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
5 1/2 c freshly ground white whole wheat flour*
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp gluten flour or dough enhancer
2 c chocolate chips

Grind wheat. Cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well. Add flour, soda, salt and gluten. Then add chocolate chips. For best-tasting cookies refrigerate dough for 24-36 hours. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350° for 10 min.

*If using hard red wheat, use only 3½ c and add 1c white flour.

Variation 1: use Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips. Holy yumminess!

Variation 2: use green mint chips for St. Patrick's Day.


  1. Where did you find the green mint chips? I haven't seen them in any stores for at least 5 years...did you have to order online? ~Nancy

  2. I'm pretty sure I bought them at Macey's grocery store.
