Low Carb & Slimming Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

Low Carb & Slimming Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

Introduction

When Chocolate chip cookies are your weakness it is nice to be able to turn to something that isn't going to undo your waist line efforts. Try this cookie with half the fat and carbs due to some key replacements namely in butter and flour components. The addition of whey protien for part of the flour increases daily protein which is what we need to stay lean. Pumpkin substitute helps fill you up! Check it out.

Ingredients

    1/4 cup soy flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups unflavored whey protein isolate **(you can buy this at Netrition.com or any health food store. It is finer than regular protein powder, acts like flour!!)
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    1 stick I can't believe it's not butter baking stick (or any light butter or regular butter of your choice)
    1/4 cup plus 2 TBspns White Sugar Splenda Blend
    1/4 cup plus 2 TBspns Brown Sugar Splenda Blend
    6 Tbs egg whites (approx 2 eggs)
    1 Tbs vanilla extract
    3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, low sugar or sugar free preferred. Can also look for carob chips
    1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
    (optional, but these are a source of good fat, filling and are a "clean food". Highly recommended to optimize nutrition)- not calculated in calorie count**


Directions

Mix dry ingredients in sep. bowl. Mix pumpkin, slightly softened butter and both sugars in bowl and mix. Add egg whites and then vanilla. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Add chips and nuts . Drop in small spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Makes about 55 cookies.
You can play around with whey powder and wheat/ soy flour combos but this is the best I have found so far to get carbs low. Sugar free or low sugar chocolate chips would make the recipe even lower in carbs, I just didn't have them on hand this time. This combo has about 50 cals a cookie and 5 carbs per cookie which is really good!
