I had this cookie the other day (ok, maybe not just ONE cookie!) and HAD to have the recipe. The original recipe was cut down to include better alternatives for a healthier cookie AND reduced the original recipe by 1800 calories per batch! No guilt eating chocolate chip cookies (in moderation)? I’m in!
Enjoy this recipe to your stomach’s content:
*2 c whole wheat
*1/2 c all purpose vegetable OR 1/4 c canola oil
*3/4 c applesauce
1/2 c organic brown sugar; 1/2 c white sugar
*1 egg + 2 egg whites OR use equivalent in egg beaters
*2 tsp baking soda (TIP: when baking, increase your baking soda when using whole wheat flour)
*2 tsp vanilla extract
*1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips; *1 c unsweetened chocolate chips
*1 c walnuts (optional if you don’t like nuts)
*Cook until done! Most ovens would have your cookies bake at 425 degrees and test the cookies with a knife. Stick the knife into the cookie, and if the blade comes clean, they are done!
**Get those anti-oxidants from the chocolate, your Omega 3’s from the walnuts and lower cholesterol with this version. That’s worth it to me. ENJOY!**
