Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

  My family loves chocolate chip cookies and I want them to eat healthily, so I make cookies that are lower in fat but still taste great. These cookies have 2.5 grams of fat while a regular chocolate chip cookie has 7 grams of fat. I found this wonderful recipe in a cookbook called Dr. Cookie Cookbook. This cookbook has so many wonderful recipes for low fat treats. This cookbook has been in my cookbook collection for a long time, way before the internet. Even though I now use my computer for looking up recipes for baking, I still reference some of my cookbooks for family favorite recipes. My youngest son knows which cookbook has a recipe for the basic pancake recipe that he uses.

 These chocolate chip cookies are so delicious. I have tried many other chocolate chip cookie recipes, like the ones on the back of the packages of chocolate chips, but these are my favorite cookies. I think that the recipe on the chocolate chip package makes greasy cookies. The recipe below is lower in fat as it uses way less butter. So you have to try making these Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies and you will love them.

Make this recipe allergy-friendly by using vegan butter and plant-based milk

Dr. Cookies's Chocolate Chip Cookies

yield: 48 cookies
calories per cookie: 78
fat per cookie: 2.5 grams

6 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. ( I use silicone sheets on my pans so I don't have to spray the sheets) 

Beat or cream the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and beat again. Add the milk and vanilla and beat again until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and beat until well mixed. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Drop the batter by teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. 

 My family loves these cookies and I love that they are better for them
