Whole Wheat Cardamom Chocolate Chip Cookies

Try this one.

Based on cookies from Heirloom Brewing.  (Which has some mighty fine brews, too.)

My version.



Whole Wheat Cardamom Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 c. rolled oats
  • 1/2 t. cardamom
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. fine sea salt
  • 1/2. c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 large farm fresh egg
  • 1 c. chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat  oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Place the oats in a  food processor and pulse until ground.  Place in a medium mixing bow, add flour, cardamom,  baking soda and salt.  Whisk to combine.  Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, beat beat butter until fluffy.
  4. Add white sugar and brown sugar.   Beat until creamy.  Add egg; beat until smooth.
  5. Add in chocolate chips and nuts and beat until just incorporated.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto a silicon lined baking sheet.  (May also line with parchment paper.)
  7. Bake until firm around the edges and golden on top (about 12-15 minutes).
  8. Cool cookies for 2 minutes on sheet then remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Of course, the “bakeshop’s” cookies were a bit lovelier and bakery looking.  I love that they are using a brewing by product with the spent spelt.

I did fall in love with the flavors of these little bites, though.

Now the big question of the day…how are these with beer?
