the BEST chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat

best choco chip cookie-featured

I was craving some good, old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies while on a visit to see my brother. He nonchalantly passed me a recipe he found, and casually said we could try it.

After the usual beating, whisking, mixing, and scraping, these lovely cookies were born.

For some time now, I had been on the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie, and this recipe is just that. Firm and crumbly on the outside with a slight mealiness within, these cookies will make you want to stop searching for the perfect recipe, ’cause guys, this is it.



  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup almonds (optional)


  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  3. Add dry ingredients and blend until dough is sticky. Fold in chocolate chips and almonds.
  4. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  6. Stagger round lumps of dough on baking sheet. Sprinkle kosher salt if desired.
  7. Bake for 14 minutes, or until fork inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes one dozen cookies.


I don’t own a convection oven, so I had to bake for an additional 5 minutes (19 minutes total). This dough really spreads in the oven, so leave plenty of space between lumps.
