My sweet tooth is rearing it’s ugly head again. It doesn’t very often, but when it does – Look. Out. I’ve tried store bought low-sugar cookies and they just don’t do the trick for me. I’ve tried a lot of Gina’s recipes from Skinny Taste so I knew I could trust her! This is a slight adaptation of her recipe, they turned out great!
- 1/2 cup NuNaturals stevia sugar (you can use regular sugar if you don’t have Nustevia)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp butter, melted (or butter substitute)
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp apple sauce (not pictured; you can also use butter if you don’t have applesauce – it goes without saying that the apple sauce is healthier)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I only had regular sized so I used less than 1/2 cup)
- Optional: 1tbsp of Chia seeds
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with baking liners, tin foil or lightly spray with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and chia seeds (if using) and stir to blend. In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, applesauce and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
3. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is well blended. If the batter looks too dry add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out.
4. Fold in chocolate chips. Space cookies apart according to size and bake until golden brown. (The directions said 8-10 minutes but since mine were bigger it took significantly longer than that, I just kept an eye on them)
