I used the Sunsweet Lighter Bake product and these turned out fantastic! No chocolate chips but 3/4 cup of raisins. Yummy!
I used light butter, but they turned out great!
Fantastic! I've already eatten too many! I did use real margarine, but only cause I'm not sure where to find a butter substitute. I missed your note though and only used 1/3 cup, but they were still great. Next time though (because I'm not big on sweets) I will omit the chocolate chips and add more raisins instead
