Chocolate Chip & Walnut Wholewheat Cookies

This cookie is on high demand in this house.  I am not in particular a sweet tooth but I usually have my fair share when I have my cuppa during the day.  I just want to blog about it because I needed to practice my food shots.  Heh!  

This time, I substituted with whole wheat flour so technically these cookies are supposedly healthier.  As for the taste, they are just as good as the ones I usually make with the all purpose flour.  This time, I only made a dozen because I'm trying to control the young n' old's sugar intake in this house these days.  ;) 

Wish you a happy hump day!
