Big and Chewy Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies
From Cook's Country
We wanted a low-fat chocolate chip cookie recipe that made cookies we’d actually want to eat. To do this, we used a date puree to replace most of the butter in our recipe. The little bit of remaining butter went a long way after we browned it to concentrate and boost its flavor. This gave us a batter flavorful enough to allow us to cut back on the chocolate chips. And to ensure each of our low-fat chocolate chip cookies had some chips in it, we pressed a portion of them over each dough ball just before cooking them. Traditional chocolate chip cookies have 220 calories, 8 grams of (total) fat, and 5 grams of saturated fat per cookie. Our Big and Chewy Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies have 120 calories, 3 grams of (total) fat, and 2 grams of saturated fat per cookie.
Makes 18 cookies
Dried dates can be found in the nut and dried fruit section of the supermarket. Be sure to buy dates that are still supple. See related Tip for information on browning butter.
