Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm always trying to "healthy up" recipes that I love (driving my family slightly crazy at times), and this one was a success tonight.  I used our traditional family chocolate chip cookie recipe, and replaced all of the unhealthy ingredients with healthier options.  Tom, Lauren and two of her friends tried them and it was unanimous--they LOVED them!!  I'll be interested to see if any of you try this recipe and, if you do, how you and your family feel about them.
The replacement ingredients

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup raw sugar
1 cup organic, virgin coconut oil
2 brown eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Sift flour, soda and salt together.  Cream coconut oil and sugars together.  Mix eggs and vanilla in separate bowl, then add to sugar mixture.  Blend thoroughly.  add sifted ingredients.  Add chocolate chips.  Drop from tsp. onto baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
