Cooking Light Chocolate Chip Cookes
I was craving chocolate chip cookies yesterday but I've been trying to be good about what I eat - Especially since I've been sick and haven't been able to exercise as often as I'd like! I found a quick recipe in one of the Cooking Light cookbooks I have and got to work. The dough came together pretty quickly as chocolate chip cookies usually do. The dough is a bit softer than many doughs but I think it's because it has less butter than most recipes - Strained applesauce replaces much of the butter. The recipe called for semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I had bittersweet, milk and semi-sweet on hand so I decided to use all three. YUM! What is better than a triple-chocolate chip cookie!? I can't think of much!
While the cookies baked the house filled with the wonderful aroma of chocolate. These cookies did not disappoint - They were chocolatey, gooey and chewy. You can hardly tell that these cookies are low in fat and and calories. The best part about these (besides the chocolate; can you tell I love chocolate?!) is that they are only 78 calories and contain less than 3g of fat per cookie!
