Exam time means long study spells and that needs a lot of concentration. The health needs to stay intact during the exam time. Parents need to be really careful about the food their kids eat during the exam time. I believe in my easy chocolate chip cookies recipe for my ladoo during his exam time snacking.

Most mothers pick wafers and frozen items for snacking purposes and compromise with health.

My chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe comes as a rescue.

You know that I am a constant advocate of developing early age healthy eating habits.

Wheat Germ Chocolate Chip Cookies

You need some food that helps your child study well and keep him energized. This healthy whole wheat cookie with honey, flax seed, wheat germ, and Choco chips makes a perfect companion during the study time. “Journal of School Health” in April 2008, found a positive link between a diet rich in nutritious food, including whole grains, and positive academic performance.

This recipe has four superfoods:

Whole wheat: This provides the necessary glucose to the brain. The stabilized source of energy to a child’s brain helps them focus on study. Read the benefits of whole wheat at wholegrainscouncil.org.

Honey: It is tremendous in preventing metabolic stress and achieves restful sleep. I have explained the benefits of honey in my recipe of almonds glazed with honey.

Flaxseed: It is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acid. Omega 3 fatty acid is helpful in managing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Benefits of Flax seeds are explained beautifully on WebMD.

Toasted Wheat Germ: Wheat germ is full of protein and fiber. The vitamins (B1 and B6) help proper mood chemicals. Organic facts list down the benefits of wheat germ.

Let’s make eggless healthy chocolate chip cookies

In a bowl, dissolve flax seed powder into 3 tbs of water and set aside for 5 minutes.

In another bowl add whole wheat flour, wheat germ, butter, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Mix everything well until you get a crumbly mixture. Do not over knead the dough.

Now add honey, flax seed solution, and 1 tsp of the chocolate essence to the crumbled mixture. Combine all these and make a dough.

Adding honey in Chocolate Chip Cookies flour

Add chocolate chips to the dough and place the prepared dough into refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Chocochips for Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keeping the dough in the refrigerator helps to stabilize the butter. After shaping when cookies will go into the oven, they will get enough time to rise. Whereas if you will bake cookies immediately after kneading the dough, cookies will spread, instead of rising, because of the melted butter.

Let’s bake our easy chocolate chip cookies

Keep the oven for preheating at 180 °C.

Now divide the dough into 16 equal parts and shape each of them. Roll each portion into a smooth round ball and slightly flatten it.

I like my cookies to be soft and chewy so I purposely shaped them thick. Place the shaped cookies on a baking tray leaving some space in-between.

Tip: Spread parchment paper before placing the cookies on the tray. Your cookies will not stick with the baking tray during baking.

Bake these shaped cookies in a preheated oven at 160 °C for 18 min or until the edges turn golden. Once done take out the cookies out from the oven.

Notes

  • I have used wheat germ for this recipe, in case you don’t have wheat germ, add 50 gm of wheat flour or oats. Rest of the recipe will remain same.
  • To make the recipe healthier I have added honey. You can substitute honey with 30 gm of brown/white sugar.
  • Baking time depends upon the shape. Thicker the cookies, more time required to bake.
  • You can replace flax seed solution with an egg.
  • Skip adding salt if you are using salted Butter.

  1. hi Sonia,

    JUst one qs, 1st we preheat for 180 and then preheat at 160 and baking at 160… can u explain how to do that in a microwave convection?

  2. Hello Sonia,

    I am going to try this for my daughter who till now did not like anything I baked. I am just starting baking and a novice in this area.

    It will be good if you tell what is the importance of each item in baking. Like in this recipe we used flax seeds powder. So what is the use of it, i know its very healthy.
    Will keep you posted how it went…my fingers are crossed.
    I used conversion table…but it will be really helpful for novice people like me if you share measurement in cup too.

    Thanks,
    Shalini

    • Hello Shalini,

      1- Flaxseed is a healthy replacement for the egg is eggless baking.
      2- Cups measurements are never perfect because of the variety of cups available in the market. I have developed a habit of being more accurate by using the metric system and give a quantity in grams.

      • Hello Sonia,

        many thanks, its the only recipe which my daughter liked. She ate several cookies which made me really happy. some more queries:

        Egg is needed to rise ? can i use flax seeds powder in other recipe too?
        and in what amount i should replace it with egg? 1 egg= 1tbsp flax seeds mixed with 3tbsp water.

        Shalini

        • Hello Shalini,
          It is not correct to assume that flaxseed can be used as an egg replacer in every recipe. However, the formula you mentioned is correct.

          – Sonia

    • Hi Ranjani,
      There are other substitutes to butter, but they are unhealthy for example Margarine. You may use Ghee as well, however, it will increase the amount of calories per cookie.
      Regards
      Sonia

  3. Hi if I don’t wish to use honey, can I replace with milk and add some extra cane/ palm sugar? How much can I add and will it majorly affect the texture of the cookie?

    • Hi Arthi,

      Instead of honey you can use 30gm of palm sugar and add 2 table spoon of milk as well. The texture of the cookie will be slightly different and on a crunchier side.

      Regards
      Sonia
