Who says an “almost” fat- free chocolate chip cookie can taste as good as a full-fat chocolate chip cookie? We do! We’ve swapped out the traditional butter with unsweetened applesauce. For sweetness, we’ve used Stevia powder and for better health, dark chocolate chips (not semi-sweet or milk chocolate). You can find dark chocolate chips online or in stores who carry organic and fair trade chocolate.
