Yum Times Three!
Serving Size: 1 softie (1/6th of recipe)
PointsPlus® value 4*
HG Alternative: Swap out the Splenda for the same amount of granulated white sugar, and each softie will have 164 calories, 27.5g carbs, and 17g sugars (PointsPlus® value 4*).
Big soft cookies are awesome. Guilt-free, cocoa-infused ones with TWO types of chocolate chips are exceptionally awesome! Preheat the oven, grab a baking sheet, and prepare yourself for the BEST SOFTIES EVER!
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated), or HG Alternative
2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown), room temperature
2 tbsp. no-sugar-added applesauce
2 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2 packets hot cocoa mix with 20 - 25 calories each (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. white chocolate chips, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, thoroughly whisk brown sugar, Splenda, butter, applesauce, egg substitute, and vanilla extract.
Add flour, cocoa mix, baking powder, and salt, and stir until smooth. Fold in oats, chocolate chips, and chopped white chocolate chips.
Spoon batter onto the sheet in 6 evenly spaced mounds. Use the back of a spoon to spread and flatten into 3-inch circles.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a softie comes out mostly clean, about 10 minutes. Eat up!
