If you thought the words “delicious” and “low-fat” could never be used to describe one cookie, think again, says Good Housekeeping. This one’s chewy, sweet and chock-full of chocolate bits, yet it still packs only 2 grams of fat per serving.
CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup (1 stick) light corn-oil
spread (56 to 60 percent fat)
3/4 cup packed dark brown
1/2 cup sugar
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup low-fat semisweet-chocolate pieces
1/2 cup dark seedless raisins
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Heat oven to 375 F. Spray 2
large cookie sheets with nonstick
2. In large bowl, with mixer at
low speed, beat corn-oil spread,
brown sugar and sugar until combined. Increase speed to high; beat
until light and fluffy.
3. Add egg whites, egg and
vanilla extract; beat until smooth.
4. With spoon, stir in flour, oats,
chocolate pieces, raisins, baking

5. Drop dough by level tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, on

12 minutes until golden, rotating
cookie sheets between upper and
lower racks halfway through baking time. With pancake turner, remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
