Healthier Choc Chip Cookies

I made turkey chili today and healthier choc chip cookies (have been dying to try this...I modified the Nestle Tollhouse recipe to add flax meal and whole wheat flour).

1-1/2 cup ground flax meal
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 packed brown sugar
cream together.
1 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
1 T vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour + 2 T vital wheat gluten
1-1/4 cup all purpose flour
Stir in
1 bag chocolate chips
Nuts (optional and not necessary because the flax gives it a nutty flavor)

Preheated 375 degree oven 10-12 minutes. The cookies do not spread out much, so you can keep them close together on the cookie sheet but make sure you flatten them a little by hand before baking (no need to do the fork thing like with PB cookies). I like it!
