Recipe by peachesNcream
The perfect cookie when you're craving chocolate without all the guilt! Mostly whole wheat, and the only sugar is from the small amount in the semi-sweet chocolate chips. This makes for a lower glycemic index. Makes for a tasty dessert when served with sugar-free ice cream and cool whip. There is no baking powder or baking soda in the recipe.

Made these tonight after supper for a quick dessert for my diabetic DH. I was wanting to make something more like a regular chocolate chip cookie, so I left out the cocoa and replaced it with an extra 1/4 cup of unbleached white flour. I also used mini chocolate chips. I did flatten them slightly but should have pressed them harder because these cookies do not spread at all. They smelled delicious as they were baking (mmm ... warm chocolate - what's not to like?) and I thought they tasted pretty good. DH wasn't as thrilled with them as I had hoped, but I will try them again & will try using the cocoa in the dough as well. Thanks for posting! -M =)
