I completely re-worked this recipe because the calorie count was too high. I substituted applesauce for the oil (same amount), used equivalent amounts of Splenda for baking instead of all sugar, cut the butter in half and used plain Greek yogurt for the other half, and used a cup and a half of ground oats and a quarter cup of whole wheat flour. I also substituted a half cup of walnuts for the chocolate chips. I made 24, 2 inch, substantial and really yummy cookies. Each has a calorie count of 60. I just like to eat more than one cookie!
1 cup almond meal 3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup apple sauce
2/3 cup honey powder or agave
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Instead of using Butter, I used Coconut Oil (Preferably Virgin) and the cookies tasted the same and were even healthier!
Instead of using one egg, I substituted 3 egg whites. I also used 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil in place of the 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup canola oil.
