Lighter Maple Chocolate Chip Cookies (easy)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MizEmerilLagasse

I made these cookies for my mother who is just plain sick of my fathers low carb diet. She has been begging me to make something "carby" for her for about a month now, and it has been driving me crazy. So, I decided to indulge her with these, and it worked!

My husband LOVED these even though he doesn't usually like sweets much. They were also a very big hit with friends who tried them. I used wholemeal flour and replaced the sour cream with natural yoghurt because it's what I had on hand. Next time I'll cut the sugar down to half a cup because there's so much chocolate in them. All up, very tasty, very easy cookies.
