"These will satisfy your chocolate cravings but have been designed for the Weight Watchers Plan. Two cookies equals one point as stated on the Weight Watchers website for this recipe. http://www.weightwatchers.com/food/rcp/index.aspx?recipeId=50634 If you are concerned with the calculation of the points, please contact your WW leader."
Serving Size: 1 (15 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"Delish!! The hard part is not devouring the entire 24 cookies! Thusly defeating the whole WW point thingy. But, I will try to control myself and only eat 2.....yeah, right."
"These cookies are not one point for 2 cookies. I am a weight watcher member and when I work the points, 1 cookie is one point."
"My brother wanted cookies... even though the rest of the family is trying to cut back. I had to find something, so I made these. He was very satisfied, but I'm making more tomorrow. Great "diet" cookies. *Made these again but I added some heart healthy walnuts to the dough along with the chocolate chips."
"These are really good! Perfect for a craving, or if you have kids who need to watch their intake too, like I do. Don't be afraid of the oil - in such a small amount (2 tsp), it is perfect. I love that this doesn't make a TON of cookies that you have to have hanging around, taunting you for days."
"These are great cookies! I have been making them for about a year now for my children. I double the recipe and add a tablespoon or 2 of ground flax seed. I also replace about 1/3 of the white flour with whole wheat flour. My kids and their friends love these and don't even realize that it's a healthier version of the traditional CC cookie. Thanks for the recipe!"
"I made these tonight and they were great. Filling but really delicate. I used 1/2 the chocolate chips and I think they would be GREAT with a dash of cinnamon in them and no chips. I baked for 10 mins and they were really crispy/chewy/rubbery like I love them."
"I used wheat flour and mini chips and they turned out great. I even let my toddler have a few because they are healthy. My husband wasn't a huge fan but he's picky. They are a great bite size treat when you are craving chocolate."
"First, I should say I loved these. They had a great texture and lots of chocolate and were the perfect point friendly cure for my sweet tooth. I did cut the sugar to 1/3 cup as a matter of taste and had to use 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour out of necessity. While I would not advocate for the change in flours, the sweetness of my cookies was fine. I made mine using my one teaspoon cookie dough scoop and got 38 little cookies - a bit bigger than a quarter but nice and full and plump. At that size, they were 2 for 1 point and 3 for 2 points. H Well worth a walk in the park for a couple of APs. Thanks!"
"My first batch was flat as a pancake but the 2nd batch I lowered the canola oil to only 1 T and it was much more to our liking--soft & higher. Also used light brown sugar instead of dark for my husband as well as nuts. Also made a batch w/white chips & macadamia for me. Mine cooked 6 min.Don't forget to ADD FLOUR & BAKING SODA TO WET INGRED. NOT IN DIRECTIONS. "
"These are pretty good cookies. I have always had trouble getting the chocolate chips to adhere to the dough when there is oil instead of butter and, even with half butter, I found that to be the issue with this dough too. I doubled the recipe and used whole wheat pastry flour. Even doubling it this was a very small amount of batter so this would be an excellent recipe for people who don't want a lot of cookies either because they will eat them all or because they are cooking for a small number of people. And these make very small cookies, sort of 1 bite cookies. I do think they would be better with mini chocolate chips instead of the regular. And for my liking they had to cook 8 minutes but I wanted them slightly crunchy! "
