I'm trying to work into a healthier lifestyle. Practically speaking, it's not realistic for me to think that I am going to be able to maintain a diet free of sweets and fats, sooooo I am working toward healthier alternatives that will actually satisfy and not just annoy me for having wasted my time on something I didn't like and did not take away my craving. Today I baked these cookies and I find them to be a good alternative to my favorite fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. I actually feel full after having had 3.
WHAT? I had to taste-test them.
According to the recipe they are 80 calories each and have protein AND dietary fiber in them.

Light Brown Sugar instead of Brown Sugar (cause that's what I had on hand)
Diabeti Sweet instead of Granulated Sugar
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light (I like it, but it's only 37%) instead of Trans Fatfree vegetable oil spread (60% to 70% oil)
Whole Grain Wheat Flour instead of All-purpose Flour
Milk Chocolate Chips instead of Bittersweet (62% cacao) or semisweet chocolate chips (because I like them better and they are the same value)
