Double Chocolate Chews – 2 WW Pts

So since I love to bake and I just rejoined WW, I’ve had to find “healthier” baked goods that are WW Friendly. These little guys are awesome. My only problem is that at 1 or 2 points, if I eat 20 of them, that’s still 20 points… I should have made 1/2 a batch because hubby doesn’t like chocolate, so he won’t be helping me eat them!

I put the recipe into the WW recipe builder and it calculated 2 pts for 1 cookie or 3.5 pts for 2 cookies. The original recipe says they’re 1 point, so just double check yourself. My batch only made 33 instead of 4 dozen. If I had gotten 4 dozen, they would have been 1 point…

Double Chocolate Chews – 2 WW Pts (makes 33)
(I stole this recipe from here, original recipe from Cooking Light)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour – I use King Arthurs White Whole Wheat Flour
2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate mini-morsels, divided – I used full size ones
3 tablespoons vegetable oil – I used unsweetened applesauce
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar – I used 1/2 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Mix
2 1/2 tablespoons light-colored corn syrup
1 tablespoon water
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 egg whites
Vegetable cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well, and set aside.

Combine 3/4 cup chocolate morsels and oil in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and let cool 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, water, vanilla extract, and egg whites to chocolate mixture; stir well. Stir in flour mixture and remaining chocolate morsels.

Drop dough by level tablespoons (I used a cookie scoop) 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies from pans; let cool on wire racks.

    Who can resist a good dip?! I was just given some hot sauce straight from Mexico and this seems like the perfect test drive for it. Great pics too!

    Finally, a lactose tolerating recipe I want to make!! Such a teaser reading my google reader. I just made Dori’s eggplant dip and added WAY to much garlic, even as a garlic fanatic, it can be too much at a certain point. Bookmarking this, thanks.
