[Chocolate] Chip on Your Shoulder

Mockolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is a little further away from the real thing than the Hungry Girl recipe. The HG recipe is 88 calories per cookie, but honestly, who eats only one cookie? ;)

So, I offer you an even lower calorie alternative that clocks in at 60 calories per cookie.

1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal (pulvarized in food processor)
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener
2 Tbs. Splenda Blend Brown Sugar, packed

3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
4 Tbs. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 Tbs. Butter extract
1 Tbs. sugar-free brown sugar cinnamon flavored Torani syrup

1/2 ounce German chocolate pieces, chopped
2 1/2 Tbs. no sugar chocolate chips, chopped in a food processor.

Preheat oven to 385.

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Then combine all liquid ingredients. Pour into dry ingredients and stir together. Add the chocolate chips and the chocolate pieces. Portion out into 8 cookies on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

Recipe makes 8 cookies. Each cookie is 60 calories. So, even if you accidentally eat the whole's about 484 calories or about an hour on the treadmill (for me, a little longer than that since I still can't run). Super low in sugar and great for a substitute chocolate chip cookie.
