Lower Fat Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

side note: I spent about 6 months tweaking the ingredients to get this cookie just right. If you make substitutions or change measurements, I can't be held responsible. Make changes at your own risk!!!)

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

3/4 cp Land O Lakes Light Butter (Softened)
1/4 cp Applesauce
1 small pkg Chocolate Pudding
1/4 cp White Sugar
1/2 cp Splenda
3/4 cp Brown Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla

Combine the above ingredients and mix.

2 Eggs(room temperature) (or egg beater equivalent)

Add Eggs and mix

1 cp. White Flour
1 cp. White Wheat Flour (King Arthur Brand)
2/3 cp. Cocoa Powder
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt

Combine these ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk together lightly to incorporate. Then gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients just until they are thoroughly combined. Do Not Over Mix.

1 1/4 cps Mini Chocolate Morsels (Yes, it makes a difference!!!)

Add Morsels and stir

Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Do not over bake. Pull them from the oven before they look "done". When cooled they will firm up and you'll have a chewy and chocolaty treat. You can add nuts if you like and you can also add dried cherries.

What size pkg of pudding. The 4 serving size or the larger one? I cant wait to try this one and wont tell my hubby about the lighter changes!

Boy this looks fantastic, but I've a quick question--I can't tolerate any artificial sweeteners--just what would a cup of sugar do rather than the splenda?

You should be fine to replace the splenda with sugar. :)

Made these yesterday and my husband couldnt stop eating them. I used Kroger unsalted butter and reg size chocolate chips since that is what I had on hand and they turned out great! Thank you for this super recipe.
