Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies
The chocolate chip cookie, crisp around the edges, soft in the middle, with gooey pockets of melty chocolate, is an almost perfect treat. And it's hardly a huge nutrition offender at just 200 or so calories per cookie. But who can eat just one? Or, put another way, what if you can have the pleasures of the classic with about half the fat and calories? That's what we have delivered here, even sneaking in a few whole grains. And we did not skimp on the rich, buttery cookie or the essential minimum chip-per-cookie ratio.
