“I'm always looking for ways to make recipes a little more diet friendly. As a lover of chocolate chip cookies, I'm pretty picky about the texture and flavor of lower fat versions. After about 5 years of tweaking, here's a version that is healthier and delicious!”
2 dozen large cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together softened butter, light butter, applesauce brown sugar, white sugar, & Splenda. After creamed together, add 2 room temperature eggs (I put my eggs in a cup of hot water for a couple of minutes to speed things up.) and mix. Add in vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, pudding, & salt and combine these ingredients.
  4. Then take the dry ingredients and add to the wet ingredients a little at a time. When incorporated, you can add the mini morsels.
  5. Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for appx. 10 minutes. Pull them from the oven BEFORE they look done. As they cool they will firm up and you will have a very chewy and chocolaty lower fat cookie!
