Low-fat chocolate chip cookies

As much as I love trying interesting recipes with new-to-me ingredients, I also love the basics – as you can probably tell from the recipes I share here. I love trying new things, but there’s something about classic food that will always appeal to me. A lot of my favourite comfort foods are also extremely calorie-laden, and while I definitely indulge quite a bit, I also enjoy finding lightened-up alternatives. Like these chocolate chip cookies! These babies are less than 100 calories per cookie.


1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg white
2 tbsp apple sauce
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

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to blend. In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, apple sauce and vanilla together until light and fluffy.

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more crumbly than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (only if needed) until it smooths out. Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by level spoonfuls about one inch apart onto baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let them stand five minutes before removing the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks.

Makes two dozen cookies.

    These look tasty! I’ve made choco-chip muffins lower fat using puréed peaches before, and they turned out well – so I’m thinking the apple sauce will work in the same way!
