Daily Recipe: Semi-Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Agave Sweetened andWhole Wheat)

I'm admittedly not the best baker. They say cooking is an art and baking is a science. Well I fancy myself a semi-competent artiste but a shit scientist. Anyhoo, I do bake a decent chocolate chip cookie and have been looking for ways to cut down on the evil white sugar and flour scene. I did a little research and developed this recipe for whole wheat, agave-sweetened chocolate chip cookies. And you know what, they aren't half bad! While they aren't low-cal (I assume they are the same calories as a regular cookie), they are nutritious with the whole wheat and no sugar and all. Word of caution: don't go and eat 5 of these in one sitting like I did. I have a stomach ache.

Semi-Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies - makes 3 dozen


  • 1 and 1/2 Cups Agave Nectar 

  • 3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

  • 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick) melted

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

  • 1/4 tsp. Salt

  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda

  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder 

  • 1 12 oz pkg. semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Dump your eggs, agave, and melted butter, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until everything is well incorporated. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Slowly add your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until your cookie batter is formed. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts and mix well. Drop tablespoon sized balls onto an ungreased non-stick baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Devour while still warm.
