There is nothing better than baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch especially when you have an eager 3 year old who is willing to help every step of the way and an uninvited hurricane on the way named Sandy! I used the recipe on the back of a Nestle Dark Chocolate & Mint Chips Bag and modified it to the low fat version!

INGREDIENTS:

1-1/8 up  white whole wheat flour

1-1/8 cup unbleached all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 stick of unsalted butter softened

1/2 cup avocado oil

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup cane or coconut sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 Large Eggs

1/2 tsp Peppermint extract

1 Cup Enjoy Life Chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking soda and salt. In another medium mixing bowl beat butter, oil, applesauce, sugar and vanilla on medium until smooth. Add eggs and beat until well combined. Mix in the flour mixture in two parts, do not over mix! Stir in chips. Use a small scoop and place small mounds of cookie batter onto un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min or until golden. Let cool 5 min before transferring onto cooling rack for further cooling. I got 40 cookies from this recipe. Serving Size 1 cookie.
