Choc-Oat-Wheat Cookies

This is a kinda traditional favorite of chocolate chip lovers everywhere. In the place of regular flour, I use whole wheat and unbleached flour. But not just any whole wheat flour will do. I use hard white wheat flour. Red wheat flour doesn't taste as good as white wheat and is much heavier. While I grind my own, it is also available at most supermarkets. Don't sift your flour because you want to keep your fiber in your cookies.
