Hi Peeps! I’m doing a chocolate chip cookie recipe today!!! And for a bonus, it’s quick, easy and figure friendly!
As you know if you dropped in for a Week in the Life of a Crazy Woman, I’m doing Weight Watcher’s. And if you know me at all, you know that I’m a certified sugarholic. I so love to bake. I’m in menopause and my love for baking somehow became my go-to stress relief. Very bad for the sugarholic. After baking myself 14 lbs. chubbier, I’ve turned over new not as sugary leaf. I have been experimenting with a few figure friendly recipes. Chocolate Chip Cookies are a necessity in my life. Even if I am trying to shed some of the chubiliciousness.
Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
– 2 tbsp butter, softened
– 2 tsp canola oil
– 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, dark-variety
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/8 tsp table salt
– 1 large egg white
– 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 tsp baking soda
– 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, about 1/2 cup
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, oil and sugar. Add vanilla, salt and egg white; mix thoroughly to combine.
In a small bowl, mix together flour and baking soda; stir into batter. Add chocolate chips to batter; stir to distribute evenly throughout.
Drop rounded half-teaspoons of dough onto one or two large nonstick baking sheets, leaving a small amount of space between each cookie. Bake cookies until golden around edges, about 4 to 6 minutes; cool on a wire rack. Makes 24 servings.
Serving size is 2 cookies
Each serving = 1 Weight Watchers Point
The recipe calls for the dough to be 1/2 teaspoon…I made the dough balls 1 teaspoon. (Making 1 cookie a serving size) But other than that I stayed exactly within the recipe,which is highly unusual for me! Just remember, unlike all my other cookies, which are HUGE…
These are tiny cookies. Which means, you mustn’t over-bake them! I ate them straight out of the oven (no surprise here!) and they were melt in your mouth delicious. But I saved a few for The Husband and those got a bit hard. I may have simply over-baked them a bit but one thing I know for sure…if you eat them while they’re hot, they melt in your mouth.
All my recipes & the recipes I love are on the left in the pull-down menu under: All Things Yumalicious! I did a post on Fun Weekend Foods HERE that has a great cookie recipe from cooking light! (Also a recipe for a Chicken Breast Burger that is OFF THE HOOK yummy!) It’s Friday so that means the talented Michael Lee West is hosting Foodie Friday over at Designs by Gollum where you’ll find loads of links containing fun food!!!
Prayers for each and every Sweet One who drops in, as we live our legacy one day at a time…
