These are not the classic chewy chocolate chip cookies. These are crumbly, delicious, quick, super addictive, thick, and how I like mine. The crumblier and fatter, the better! There is also limited sugar and fat in these with whole ingredients. The wheat flour that I use, is usually ground fresh at home. Whole wheat flour(regular or pastry) works well too. There are a double layer of chocolate chips in most of these. There are so many chips in some that the flour barely holds them together. Now that is what I call a "Chocolate chip" cookie.
