Much better low-fat cookies...this one's for you Brandon & Lindsey B.

So below this post you'll see a post for different lowfat chocolate chips cookies. We tried this different recipe tonight for FHE and they are awesome! They taste a lot better than the other ones. I found the recipe on and we tweaked it some. I think they're about 40-50 calories each. We calculated the total calories of all the ingredients and got 6 dozen cookies out of the recipe. So they'll be a little more or less depending on the size of the cookies (we did average size). Just to give you an idea...other recipes for this kind of cookie on that site had up to 200 calories each. They're lowfat and have a lot more flavor and better texture than the others. Can you tell we're fans? Enjoy...

Lowfat Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

1 C unsweetened applesauce
3/4 C white sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
4 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 (15oz) can pumpkin pie mix (not just pumpkin)
4 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, cream together applesauce and sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla and pumpkin pie mix until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into pumpkin mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen.
