Whole wheat chocolate chip cookies are earthy and delicious, a great alternative to making cookies with regular flour and kid/toddler friendly too!


  • 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 1/3 tsp of baking powder
  • A pinch of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup of grated or powdered jaggery
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp of white sugar (optional)
  • 2 drops of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 180C
  2. Melt butter lightly in the microwave or warm bowl over the stove top. Measure out 1/3 cup after melting
  3. Add jaggery and white sugar (if using) to the melted butter and give it a good mix
  4. Now add the egg and vanilla and mix again. No need for any whisking or electric beaters, just mix with a spatula until well incorporated
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt until everything is well combined. I just used a spoon for this
  6. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently combine until no streaks of flour are visible
  7. Next, add the chocolate chips (I used chopped chocolate chunks) and fold them in
  8. You will get a fairly thick cookie dough. Shape them into smooth lemon-sized balls and place on a lined baking tray
  9. Place in pre-heated oven and bring the temperature down to 320F / 160C. Bake for 8 minutes until the cookie spreads slightly and the edges are a golden brown. If you feel they are not done, bake another 2 minutes but 10 minutes should be enough
  10. The centres may be a bit soft but the cookies will harden further on cooling so take them out even if you feel they are completely done at 10 minutes max
  11. Cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
  12. Store in air tight containers for up to 3 days
