Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Looking for a healthier alternative, or someway to use that wheat food storage?
I love that these cookies don't taste (or look) like they are made from whole wheat.
I got this recipe from a church class on cooking with whole wheat several years ago.  I took them to my book club last night and they disappeared, but the best part was that no one could tell that they were whole wheat!

1 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. white sugar

2 beaten eggs

2 T. hot water
1 t. vanilla

1/2 t. salt
1 t. soda
2.5 c. whole wheat flour

6 oz chocolate chips (minimum - add as desired)
1 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts - optional)
1/2 c. coconut (optional)

Cream shortening and sugars.
Add eggs, water and vanilla.
Sift flour, soda, and salt together and add to the creamed mixture.
Add chocolate chips and nuts, then mix.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350* for 15 minutes.
