Hearty Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

heartysmarty648 views

Sunday nights at the Andersen house often include card games and cookies. This is our most frequently baked cookie. Dipped in a cold glass of milk, nothing says “home” better! I like to help people understand that a balanced diet includes a few treats now and then. However, because I eat so little refined sugar and flour, treats can be a bit too rich for my liking when I follow the original recipe. Thus, I usually cut out half the sugar and use whole wheat in most of my baked goods.  These cookies still belong in the “Sometimes Foods” category, but they do have a good dose of fiber at 1 gram per cookie. Enjoy!
