So I’ve made a couple more batches of whole wheat, low sugar, chocolate chip cookies. I think I’ve got a pretty good recipe now. Steve ate 6 or 7 cookies in a within a two day period and managed to somehow lose 2 pounds. So now I like to call them my famous-lose-weight-now-cookies. Funny, it doesn’t seem to be working for me…

Here’s the recipe.
2 Cups unsifted whole wheat flour
1/2 tea. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 sticks butter
3/4 Cup Splenda (baking splenda)
3/4 Cup packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 T. Vegetable oil
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix flour, baking soda & salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, vanilla, Splenda & brown sugarin a large bowl until creamy. Mix eggs & oil in. Slowly add in other dry ingredients. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.

Thanks for the tips, everyone! If you don’t want to use Splenda, just sub out the same amount of white sugar. Eat these with a tall glass of cold milk and consider yourself a health nut!!

    Well, Matthias seems to be enjoying the cookies. Maybe you could start a cookie diet business on the side–make some extra cash!

    I may have to come over and snag some of these cookies you are always making! I have been craving sweets recently, but can’t justify making a whole batch of cookies when it is just me and Kyle here, and I am the one that is home all day, so you know who is going to eat them!! :0)
