Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are really terrific and they look beautiful.  I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips but otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely.  The old family Kitchenaid beat these into submission nicely.  Next time I may try some of the tips from the Cook's Illustrated cookies or even a little corn syrup after learning that's how the Momofuku Milk Bar cookies get so chewy.  Recipe here.

Multigrain Buttermilk Pancakes

More pancakes, from a Good to the Grain recipe that I hadn't tried yet.  This one uses a mix of flours, all whole-grain.  I didn't have millet or barley flour so I used quinoa flour and spelt instead.  I also used powdered buttermilk.  These came out really tasty, and not heavy.  I would make them again!
The recipe is here.

Stay tuned for whole wheat chocolate chip cookies from the same book, later today!
