I don’t know if these cookies are calorie free, exactly, but they are a healthier alternative. You can find more recipes like this on our blog, or you can also find them on our social media platforms as well.

My husband and I have been trying to watch what we eat and make healthier choices, but I can’t live without treats. I have a serious addiction to sugar.

These cookies were so tasty and only have 2 tablespoons of butter in the whole batch. They are lower in calories than the cookies we usually eat, but you never would have guessed by how delicious they were.

We’ve got a new favorite cookie in our house, and it’s a little less guilty tasting.

what could i use instead of chocolate chips?

I love these cookies as they are, however, it’s fun to switch them up a little and add a few addition ingredients.

This is especially fun if you have little ones in the kitchen, helping you make them.

You can add all sorts of add ins to these cookies and they will taste just as delicious, and are just as simple to make.

I have created a list of my favorite things to add to these cookies, to make them taste just slightly different, depending on the holiday, season, and flavor preference:

  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • M&M’s
  • Pretzel Bits
  • Coconut
  • Nuts
  • Orange Zest
  • Raisins or Craisins
  • Candy Bits

  1. I made these this evening, and hubby and I nearly got sick from eating so many. REALLY good! I must admit that I find it impossible to precisely follow recipes; I often make substitutions or additions based on what I have on hand. Example: I didn't have applesauce, but I had just make a batch of pureed sweet potatoes as baby food, so I used some of that instead. I also added a bit of almond flavoring. Delicious! Thank you so very much for the awesome recipe! The healthy factor makes me feel better about eating *coughmumblednumbercough* You ladies are awesome!
  2. I needed a quick dessert to take to a dinner party tonight and couldn't go to the store because of a sleeping baby. So I came here because I knew there would be SOMETHING I could make with ingredients I had on hand. I found this recipe and just made it -- they are de-lish :) 3 thumbs up from the kiddos and I'm sure Daddy will love them as well (I made sure not to take ALL the cookies to the party, lol). The only substitute I made was switching the chocolate chips for raisins just because I love oatmeal raisin cookies. Thanks for the great recipe :)

    I made these today but I used whole wheat flour, egg whites, bittersweet chocolate chunks and dried apricots and they were amazing. I am not a fan of oatmeal cookies but these I will definitely make again, plus a bonus my 5 year old loves them. thanks for the great recipe :)
  4. Made these last night and they came out awesome! Great chewy texture; couldn't tell they were reduced fat at all. Tip: I don't particularly like/use Apple sauce and hate wasting food, so seeing the recipe called for so little I bought a tiny baby food jar. :) Just check the ingredients to make sure apples are the only ingredient and it doesn't have weird "brain development" ingredients like tuna oil.
