A Family Favorite: Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

"Healthy" Chocolate Chip Cookies

Weight Watchers Points Value: 2 pts. (per cookie)
Servings: 16

1/2 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Brown sugar
1/4 C. margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg white
1 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C. mini chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix sugars, margarine, vanilla and egg white. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by using a rounded teaspoon about two inches
apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Tip: To get soft-centered cookies, don't over-bake.

*I quadruple this recipe for my family. That way we have LOTS of cookies to stick in the freezer for easy snacks throughout the month.
