Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies will never be declared a health food, but you can make them less unhealthy by tweaking the ingredients a little. Here's a recipe for a lighter chocolate chip cookie that still manages to satisfy a sweet tooth, but perhaps with a little less guilt.

Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes


  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookies sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, butter, and vanilla; stir in the brown sugar until smooth. Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by the tablespoon onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 10-12 minutes.

Yields 24 cookies.
