Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

In my pursuit to drop some pounds, I have been looking for recipes that reduce the fat but still have the taste that I am looking for. I found this Weight Watchers Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were really easy to make. If you are doing Weight Watchers, the cookies are 1 point each. Mine might be a little more since I added some chopped pecans to them. They were yummy and smelled good when they were baking. I did not tell anyone in my household that they were not regular chocolate cookies..but it did not seem to matter, because they were eaten up.

Ingredients


2 Tbsp butter, softened   
2 tsp canola oil   
1/2 cup(s) packed brown sugar, dark-variety   
1 tsp vanilla extract   
1/8 tsp table salt   
1 large egg white(s)   
3/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour   
1/4 tsp baking soda   
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, about 1/2 cup   

Instructions

  • 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. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
