If these devilishly chocolaty cookies don't get gobbled the day they are baked, store them, well-wrapped, in the freezer.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or coat with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Whisk together sugar, prune puree, yogurt, oil and egg whites in a medium bowl. Stir together flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda and instant coffee in another medium bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet with a wooden spoon just until blended. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing cookies about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched lightly. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and cool.

Great Light Easy Recipe Most people probably don't normally have cake four available but it did make for a nice light textured cookie. I doubt anyone had prune puree available but they likely do have applesauce - which is what I swapped in this recipe and they came out perfect... dough is more batter than dough..even after refrigeration - so I was nervous about them spreading but they did not... definitely worth a try.. I used the standard cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 tblsp I think) and it made a little over 3 dozen. Pros: Delicious low fat easy Cons: a few 'non-stock' ingredients Read More
