Chewy Chocolate Cookies (Low Fat)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by This Spatula

These cookies develop a hard outer-layer that often cracks open and a moist and chewy interior. They have an intense chocolate flavor, reminiscent of fudgy brownies.

Top Review by NM Patricia

The dough was incredibly thick. I couldn't fold in nuts and chips as much as stir them in with a wooden spoon and a lot of elbow grease. Not sure what I did wrong or what I would do different - yet. I won't give up on this one. But they are exactly as described - hard outer layer with cracks tasting verymuch like brownies.
