Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been on a baking kick lately.  Every weekend I am making something sweet to eat.  While this is fun and I enjoy doing it, my waist line is telling me wait! …stop!  So I realize I can’t continue to bake and eat these yummy delights till I pop  🙂   I am taking a lot of things to work that I bake, the guys there will always eat.  More and more lately though, I try to cook and bake everything healthier, even if just a little.  I came across this recipe in Cooking Light Magazine.  I adjusted the recipe slightly by substituting 1 cup wheat flour for the white and replaced the sugar with Splenda.

These chewy, gooey, guiltless chocolate chip cookies have only 88 calories …

Bites of heaven …still plenty of yummy, chocolate morsels in every bite….
