The Daily Cookie ~ Chunky Almond Monster Cookies

With whole wheat flour in these babies, Hubs used to rationalize eating five by saying they were good for him. Whatever.

1 cup melted butter
2 cups brown sugar
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 3 dozen.
