A classic whole wheat chocolate chip cookie with a glass of milk! Match indeed made in heaven!
Imagine to be able to have a healthier version of the buttery classic. After receiving rave reviews about Inside Out Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies (Thank you all!), I decided to recreate them into a classic chocolate chip version. I used olive oil instead of butter this time around and skipped milk completely. The result was amazing. I am not claiming these cookies to be skinny or low-fat. They are still 120 calorie each (assuming you get exactly 30 cookies) but you won’t miss the evil fat here, trust me! Come on, olive oil is a good fat and so is whole wheat!
If you’re crispy cookie person then flatten the cookie dough a bit more as per your liking and let them bake for an extra minute or so. When baked thick and puffy, these cookies are soft and equally chocolicious. These cookies are also great as ice cream sandwiches. You won’t be able to stop at just one, I know you guys too well! 😉
Enjoy & have a gorgeous weekend!
Eeeep… I am off to a road trip and shall share more once I am back! 😊
