Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies Guilty Free
Bite-sized mini chocolate chip cookies are made by SPLENDA Naturals Stevia, making them a delicious “skinny” version of a classic indulgence.
Skinny Chocolate Chip Cookies
It doesn’t take much to make a skinny chocolate chip cookie recipe. All I did was take one of my favorite cookie recipes, replace the sugar with SPLENDA Naturals, and make the cookies themselves smaller portions.
I wanted to try making healthier versions of some of my favorite snacks – starting with chocolate chip cookies. Not only did we make them smaller, but we removed some ingredients and added some healthier ones, like SPLENDA Naturals Stevia and applesauce instead of oil.
The result is a mini cookie that tastes just as good as our regular version! ! After I made this slimmed down version, my husband came for a cookie and was stunned when I later told him they were made with 0 calorie stevia sweetener. He can’t tell at all! Honestly, neither can I! We’re excited to try this stevia in more of our favorite foods.
How to Make Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are so easy to make and the kids even help out. For this recipe we ended up using:
- brown sugar
- SPLENDA Naturals Stevia
- 1 egg
- baking powder
- baking soda
- Chocolate Chip
mix. Since we use SPLENDA Naturals Stevia more, we usually put it together with all the other ingredients. To make the cookies, we first mix together butter, applesauce, brown sugar and SPLENDA.
Add to. From there we add the eggs and beat until fluffy. Then we add the vanilla and dry ingredients followed by the chocolate chips.
bake. After that we rolled the dough into 1.5 inch balls, added some chips and topped and baked at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes.
The cookies turned out great and we felt less guilty eating them!
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies can be made ahead of time, But if possible, we recommend doing it well in advance. If making ahead, be sure to refrigerate until read as cookies. Let the dough come back to room temperature slightly before rolling into a ball.
arrive shop biscuits, in a ziploc bag or cookie jar.
frozen mini chocolate chip cookies, Like most cookie dough, we recommend rolling into balls and freezing.
Would you really be considered skinny if you ate a dozen of these cookies? Not really, but we love that we can get that sweet fix when we want – especially around the holidays.Since it’s impossible to avoid all goodies during the holidays, we recommend trying our little trick to replace traditional white sugar in some of my “go to” snacks gorgeous natural (This is made with 100% natural stevia sweetener).
When people think of SPLENDA, they usually think of the small package used to sweeten the drink, but with 0 calories, SPLENDA Naturals is an amazing sugar substitute that makes old recipes more guilt-free. One of the reasons it’s such a great sugar substitute is that it’s made from only the finest natural stevia, so there’s no bitter aftertaste.
