Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

There’s a reason why chocolate chip cookies are so popular and loved– they’re pretty much perfect. You don’t need to mess with a good thing!

Chocolate chip cookies don’t need anything else… but the walnuts are so good here!

The sweetness of the cookie is complemented by the nutty flavor, and everything comes together nicely to highlight the most important part: the chocolate. Chocolate chips are one of life’s little gifts! The walnuts add some heart-healthy nutrition, too– and this is already a cookie you can feel good about. Made with white whole wheat flour and coconut oil, this is a deliciously wholesome treat for cookie season.

      I can’t resist chocolate or cookies, so they are dangerous together!

    Oooh these cookies look so delicious! I’ve always been a fan of the chocolate chip & walnut combo – give it more depth than just plain old chocolate chip.
