Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I was watching TV the other day when they this recipe came up. I haven't tried it yet, but I will today. Another tip that I have heard is to mash up cooked white beans and use it in place of shortening or butter. What I would do is reduce the white sugar in half and replace the other half with more brown sugar, just under 1/2 cup of the mashed beans and 1 Tbsp. low fat tub margarine.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 1/8 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Using the paddle attachment beat until creamy and fluffy. Beat in egg. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix well. Still in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cook on a wire rack. Makes about 20 cookies.
