Delicious Rye Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a fun and different take on chocolate chip cookies. The pool of warm sweet and decadent chocolate in the center is what makes these cookies. We are in full cookie baking season. These rye whole wheat chocolate chunk cookies have to be at the top of your list.
If you have never used rye flour before this a great way to use it. Rye flour is typically used for bread. It has a decent gluten content, which makes it great for breads. The flavor is slightly nutty and sweet, which goes well with dark chocolate.
Let’s really talk about the best part of the cookie. All the chocolate of course! Using chunks of dark chocolate which you can cut with a sharp knife allows for bites and pieces to be throughout the cookie. Also placing a large chunk in the center of the cookie is the best. Right out the oven warm and still soft you bite into one of these cookies and yummy pool of warm chocolate. Are you racing to the kitchen yet to starting baking a batch.
If you are looking for a not super sweet yet totally delicious treat to bake up these are the cookies to make. They are not your average chocolate chip cookies so get ready to be happily surprised.
