Chunky Almond Chompers

almond chunk 3

One of the first kinds of cookies I learned to make, these can be done without an electric mixer.  John used to rationalize that because they have some whole wheat flour and almonds in them, they must be healthy.  I think it that was just because he couldn't stop eating them!  Truthfully, I have no idea where this recipe came from so if anyone recognizes it, please tell me so I can properly credit.  I've been making it for the past 20 years though, and they are one tasty cookie!

1 cup melted butter
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8-10 oz semi sweet chocolate squares, chopped
1 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine sugar and melted butter. Beat in eggs. In a different bowl whisk together the flours, baking soda and powder, and salt. Mix into the butter mixture until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks and the almonds. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for about 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan immediately and let cool on rack.

Makes 2 1/2 - 3 dozen.
