These soft chocolate chip cookies are made with whole wheat flour and a wonderful treat to bake up on a weekend evening.


  • 8 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/2 cup regular white sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F / 180C
  2. Microwave the butter for about 30-40 seconds on high heat until it just starts to melt. No need to heat it fully
  3. Add the white sugar and brown sugar to the butter and beat until soft and creamy. You can use an electric beater in this step too
  4. Add the egg and vanilla extract
  5. Mix until just incorporated
  6. Next, add the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  7. Mix until the mixture resembles crumbles
  8. Now get your hands in there and mix to bring the dough together. It should hold its form when you knead gently. If too sticky, add more flour by the tablespoon
  9. Add the chocolate chips and incorporate into the dough with your hands
  10. Pinch off lemon-sized amounts of dough and form smooth balls
  11. Place on baking sheets and bake in the pre-heated oven for 10-11 minutes
  12. It’s critical not to over bake them to retain the softness so take them out at 11 minutes or so even if they look pale and slightly uncooked
  13. Let them cool on the baking sheet for about 30 minutes
  14. Enjoy!
