whole wheat chocolate & chips cookies

thanks to a very good friend of mine, i have found the perfect chocolate cookie recipe for use with hard red wheat. it even works with a course grinder for those who don't have a nutramill. wink grin

these are even BETTER than they look...

2 cups freshly ground wheat flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup lard (melted)
1/4 cup butter (melted)
2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp soda
2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 2/3 cups chips of choice
1/2-1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  • 1. mix all ingredients by hand in first section.
  • 2. let soak for at least one hour.
  • 3. add soda, eggs, and sugar.
  • 4. mix with beaters and/or dough hooks.
  • 5. add chips and fold/mix in.
  • 6. spoon teaspoon size balls onto baking stone.
  • 7. bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes for a crisp/soft cookie.
careful getting them off the cookie sheet. they will be very soft and flexible. they will firm up when cooled. makes approx 7 dozen 2-3 inch cookies

note: the original recommendation was 8-12 minutes, but i found with my ingredients and the baking stone, this was not near long enough. you may have to experiment to find just the right timing for your neck of the woods and your particular baking equipment.
