Low Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let me preface these cookies by saying they aren't entirely cookies. I don't know what you would actually call them - but when they're fresh out of the oven they are warm and chocolately. So who cares what you call them?

The recipe says each cookie is 48 calories ... but that is with butter. I have substituted the butter with applesauce - so I'm asuming the calories are much lower than that.

Low Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup applesaucce
4 tsp. sugar substitue
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Sift together the dry ingredients. Cream butter, add sugar substitute, vanilla and eggs, blend well. Add flour mixture and beat well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
