Don't let the name fool you into thinking this will taste like a healthy cookie ... it tastes great. I had a few things I needed to use up in the pantry and wow it worked and worked well. This makes a great chewy cookie. Option: Instead of using milk chocolate chips get a chocolate bar break along the individual lines and lay on a cookie as it comes out of the oven. Top with another hot cookie and move to rack to cool.
