Another Slightly Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

A chocolate chip cookie with slightly less sugar, salt and chocolate chips but still very tasty

I haven’t made a recipe in a long time, but I wanted to try to make something a little healthier, but of course still tasty. I used a little bit less salt and sugar to flour ratio, as well as cut the butter a tiny bit. I also used egg whites and a smaller amount of chocolate chips. I was able to get 18 cookies out of this recipe when using heaping tablespoons. They turned out very soft and yummy.

Notes about this recipe:

  • I used regular sized semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe, but I think that miniature chocolate chips would work rather well, considering they would disperse amongst the dough better.
