Whole Wheat Choco Chip Cookies

I love to bake, my son loves to eat baked goodies but still there are times when he has to demand for cookies… 🙂 As these was mainly for him I didnt really want to do anything with maida and then I had this brain wave of making up a recipe myself… I did some browsing and thought some and came up with whole wheat choco chip cookies… and they were yummy…. the thin ones that I made crisp as they should have been and the round thick ones soft and chewy…


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 25 ml chilled milk
  • 20 – 35 gm choco chips (depending on whether u going to make it round or shape them)


  • Mix oil and sugar together till it becomes light and fluffy
  • Mix whole wheat flour, cinnamon powder and baking powder together
  • Mix the oil-sugar mixture and milk to the flour to knead a soft dough.
  • Add the choco chips in it
  • Keep aside for 10 minutes
  • Shape or roll into rounds as u want
  • Bake for about 9-12 at about 160-180 degrees depending upon the thickness of the cookie

As I was making them for Ojas I shaped them into various shapes, animals, ginger bread boy, aeroplane, car…

And there was Ojas itself as a highlight

And the entire batch of about 20 cookies got over in under an hour 🙂

    Monika this is so very tempting 🙂 Love the shapes. Fun with cooking is something I always do. Used to make them when kids were small. involving the elder one to cut shapes was a great experience. I make Bostan cookies too with atta . wish I had taken pix when writing the recipes 😦 most of them are from my other writing site where pix were not allowed. you rock mommy 😀 .. envy Oju baby hehehhe

    I also bake with whole wheat atta and Sufffola (not butter)… this is one recipe I am sharing with my kids, they both love to try new recipes. I wonder if there are recipes where we can add bran also – for added fibre.

    Super recipe! I have a q….by ‘cup’, how much do you mean? I use the American cup as 8 oz, while an Indian cup is usually a teacup i.e. 6 oz. Plan to make this today!

    Hey Monika, came to this recipe thru GM’s blog. I don’t have kids yet, but I’ll love to hog on these regardless 🙂 Needed to know if cinnamon powder can be skipped altogether, or if there is a substitute for that.. don’t quite like its sharp taste. Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick recipe…

    I have been trying this recipe with a small problem. My cookies get burnt from bottom. What could be the reason? I’m using Morphy richards otg at around 160 deg C temperature preheated for 10 minutes. I put my tray on middle shelf in otg. Pl advise.

    i did bake them and was quite thrilled that they came out well. Only one thing that I noted was that irrespective of using the correct measurements, they were extremely pliable and could not be made into shapes much to the disappointment of my girls who were all ready with various cookie cutters. What could be wrong? Thanks Ramya
