There's whole-grain goodness, not to mention fruit and nuts, in every bite of these delightful treats. They also tout an added dimension of nutty flavor, thanks to the farro flour. Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 809.


  • 3 cups farro flour, such as Hayden Flour Mills

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2 cups packed dark-brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 ½ cups coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped dried fruit, such as dates or raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter with brown sugar on medium-high until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla, then eggs, one at a time, beating to combine after each. With a mixer on low, gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate, walnuts, and fruit; beat to combine.

  2. Scoop 2-tablespoon mounds of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are just set on top, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks. Cookies can be stored, covered, up to 3 days.
