Tuesday Eats: 88 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookies

88 calorie cookie

I’m always up for trying new chocolate chip cookie recipes. My all time favorite is the NY Times recipe, but when I’m not willing to wait 36 hours this recipe has become my go-to (thanks for sharing mom!). I actually scale back on the sugar for both the brown and white and can’t taste a difference. It doesn’t make a ton, so if you’re baking for an event or large group I’d suggest doubling the recipe. If you make one giant cookie that won’t be 88 calories, but your secret is safe with me.

88 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookie
via cleverly inspired

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 large egg whites
1 tbsp. milk
3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars. Add in egg whites, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips. Bake for 9-10 minutes.

    I’m always down for a chocolate chip cookie recipe, too — especially one with only 88 calories! That’s amazing in itself!! Thanks for sharing!

    Why can’t all cookies be 88 calories?! In my mind they are! These look so good! Wonder if using wheat flour would lessen the calories too? If you’re going to be in Charleston on Monday some of us bloggers are meeting for Happy Hour!

    I saw that title and immediately thought to myself……well that’s if I only eat one…..which would probably never happen with me and cookies 😉

    I would make these (sans chocolate because I am not a fan) and then I would justify making them extra large 🙂
