Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love a batch of warm chocolate chip cookies? But making a homemade batch can be time consuming and extensive. Here is a quick and easy recipe for a small batch of cookies that can be made up in just a few minutes.

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees if making cookie bars – 375 degrees if making cookies.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar, and molasses.
Add the egg and vanilla, mix well.
Add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt, mix well.
Mix in the chocolate chips.

For cookie Bars: Spread in a greased 9×13-inch glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

For cookies: Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
