The mark of a good cookie is one that I crave for breakfast. Raise your hand if you’re with me!

Earlier this month, I spent the weekend baking bread at San Francisco Cooking School. After lunch on the first day, platters of freshly baked cookies emerged for our afternoon treat.

Incorporating alternative flours like spelt and mesquite, the cookies were so delicious that I saved a few for a midnight snack, and couldn’t resist eating one for breakfast the next morning!

Enter these graham chocolate chunk cookies, flavored with graham flour, a heavy hand of vanilla, and plenty of chocolate. These cookies bake up perfectly soft and chewy, just the way I like my chocolate chunk cookies!

If you can’t find graham flour, feel free to substitute equal amounts of another alternative flour, or use graham cracker crumbs.

Topped with extra chocolate and baked until the tops and edges are just set, sprinkle with flaky salt and enjoy warm with your coffee (or a glass of milk!).

Soft and chewy graham chocolate chunk cookies are the ultimate cookie! Flavored with graham flour, vanilla, and plenty of chocolate, you’ll love every bite!



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup graham flour*
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp bourbon (optional)
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips


  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • flaky salt


  1. Whisk together flour, graham flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugars in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and bourbon until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in chopped chocolate and chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets; flatten mounds slightly and top cookies with chopped chocolate, pressing gently to adhere.
  3. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 11 to 12 minutes, until edges are set. Remove from oven and sprinkle with flaky salt. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Graham Flour: I used Bob’s Red Mill. You can also substitute 1/2 cup of another alternative flour, or use 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (8 graham cracker sheets, pulsed to fine crumbs).

  1. Unfortunately bobs discontinued their graham flour but as a vermonter, king Arthur sells some online and at their factory store! It’s not their brand but it works great. I made these with browned butter and a few shakes of cinnamon to emphasize the graham flavor. (I loved cinnamon graham crackers as a kid). I froze half the batch for later but they came out great!

  2. Brown the butter and let it cool before mixing it in…. will give these cookies even more flavor.

    1. That’s a great idea, Joan! I love adding brown butter to just about everything… 🙂

  3. Why do you use Graham flour in this recipe but crushed Graham crackers in your s’more recipe? Just wondering! Thanks!

    1. Hi Mike, I like baking with graham flour but it’s become more difficult to find in recent years. I believe Bob’s Red Mill discontinued it, and that was always my source for it. In the s’mores cookie, I use crushed graham crackers for the nostalgic s’mores flavor (and also because they are more accessible to most bakers). Hope that helps!

      1. Thanks Laura!! It’s funny, I just made the s’more ones today and they came out great! (I even looked for graham flour at store and they didn’t have any lol). Thanks!

  4. This recipe needs to reach more people. It is the best I’ve tried! I feel like I finally made a homemade chocolate chunk cookie that is bakery quality. The small changes to the standard chocolate chip cookie here made all of the difference. Don’t skip the bourbon or the graham flour! My cookies took quite a bit longer to bake than recommended, but I knew to look for the edges to set so no worries there.

    1. Thanks so much, Erin! 🙂 That’s so nice to hear! Were you able to find graham flour? I think Bob’s has discontinued it, so I’d love to know if you’ve found a different source or brand.

  5. This is an absolutely fantastic recipe! Wouldn’t change a thing – the cookies looked great, had a perfect texture, and everyone was raving about the taste. As an added bonus, they smell a bit like s’mores when they come out of the oven. For sure my new go-to cookie recipe!! Thank you for sharing with us!

  6. This recipe is AAAAAMAZING! I don’t know if I’ll ever make a different chocolate chip cookie recipe! These will be my new go-to chocolate chip cookies! The graham flour added to the flavor profile, along with the sea salt on top! {I added pecans to mine, since I love them so much. Definitely try if you like nuts!}
