Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

    30 min

    These cookies are made with both plain and wholemeal flour. I think this gives them a deeper, nuttier flavour. If you prefer to make these into bars or fingers, press the cookie mixture into a Swiss roll pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

    I took the advice of other reviewers and used all whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of margerine, and Splenda brown sugar with a little honey. I also used dark chocolate chips. The cookies come out a little cakey and SO good. My whole family loved them!! Thanks for the recipe!  -  03 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have been trying to add whole wheat flour to our diet, and have learned to be careful. All whole wheat recipees are not equal! But this recipee is absolutely scrumptious. I ran out of white flour and used all whole wheat flour and my kids and husband still devoured these cookies faster than I could bake them. When using all whole wheat flour I had to add about 1 cup more flour. Thanks Belinda for the fantastic recipee!  -  25 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
