Chocolate Chip Cookies With Barley Flour

 

¾ cups butter (1 ½ sticks) softened
1 cup sucanat
¼ cup honey granules
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups freshly milled hulled barley flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In mixing bowl, cream the softened butter with the sucanat and honey granules until well blended.  Add the eggs and vanilla extract and continue to beat until well blended.

In a separate bowl combine the barley flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add the flour mixture 1 cup at the time to the butter mixture until well incorporated.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto baking sheets using a scoop or spoon using 2-3 Tablespoons of dough.  Bake in preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.  Let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a plate to completely cool.  These cookies freeze well.
