These are sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings and you won't have to break your food plan to chase off the chocolate demon! Each cookie has right at 50 calories and they are full of chocolate gooey goodness. It seems like there are tons more chips in these cookies because I use the mini chips instead of the regular sized chips.
By getting rid of the refined white flour and cutting down the butter, this old classic gets a healthy makeover that makes it ok to indulge whenever you want.

My grandmother's delicious Christmas recipe, which unbelievably has no added fat. I used walnuts for the nutritional analysis, but you can use pecans or other nuts. You can also substitute dried figs or apricots for the dates. This recipe is also good with white or gluten-free flour.

Favorite recipe to make during the holidays. Can be dyed with food coloring. Also can be put into a pastry bag and piped to look fancy.

So named for the vibrant colours of the holly plant that go into these decadent chocolate bites. Cherry and mint combine for a wonderful flavour sensation!

Susie's Honey Maple Cookies
Very Good 4.2/5

This is a wholesome chewy cookie that satisfies the sweet tooth, but isn't just empty calories--it's a great way to incorporate whole grains. Substitute a multi-grain mix for added nutrition and fiber. Add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or coconut for variation.
