  • ⅓ cup canola oil (see Tip)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar or sugar substitute blend equivalent to ½ cup sugar (see Tip)
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute blend equivalent to ½ cup brown sugar (see Tip)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oil and butter; beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and ¼ teaspoon salt; beat until well mixed, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg whites and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour and the chocolate chunks.
  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets; flatten slightly. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or just until edges are set and bottoms are lightly browned (centers will be soft but will firm up as they cool). Let cookies stand on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool completely. Store cookies as soon as they are cool. (see Tip)

Store cookies with fat substitutes in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
