Since I’ve started the show, one of the most requested recipes has been for a healthy cookie recipe, so after several tries (with several failures) I think I’ve got one that’s really good and not too unhealthy. Also, try substituting Splenda brown sugar blend to decrease calories even more. Let me know how it turns out! Happy Baking!
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup Splenda
1/2 cup (1 stick) lite butter
2 large egg whites
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon water
2 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream brown sugar, splenda, and lite butter. Add egg whites and vanilla.
Mix in flour, soda, cinnamon, and salt, adding water, oats, pecans, and chocolate chips until thoroughly mixed.
Shape into cookies and place on greased baking sheets – bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool.
Makes: about 48 cookies
