Prune Chocolate Chip Cookies
Lower fat cookie where prunes replace some of the butter. My children actually prefer these to regular chocolate chip cookies. I always have a batch of these in the freezer for a quick snack. If you want to use white flour use 2 1/4 cups. Be careful how many you eat they can be dangerous!

These are great to let your toddler think that he's getting full chocolate cookies! I made a few modifications: 1 cup of purée and no white sugar. 2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2tsp of almond extract. 1 cup of dark chocolate chips (50% cacao) is enough for a toddler! It is better to cream the butter with the sugar before adding other wet ingredients. Super yummy and somewhat healthy!Reply
