I started by trading out a stick of butter for a banana. Bad one. Then I halved the sugar and added a teaspoon of vanilla in place of the other half. Not too bad. The last time I made the cookies I actually left out a quarter cup of sugar anyway. For the flour I used half all purpose, half wheat. That wasn't so bad either. Next time I might do three quarters all purpose, one quarter wheat. Leaving out a quarter cup of chocolate chips didn't hurt either. I'm not a fan of overwhelmingly chocolate cookies anyway, so it was perfect.
I'm pretty sure I went wrong with using the banana instead of a stick of butter. The cookies turned out kind of chewy, which is also what happened with my brownies. They also didn't flatten out like they normally do when you bake them.In the future, I might keep the healthy modifications minus swapping out the butter. Honestly, they aren't bad though. I've eaten three while typing this us. I'll continue tweaking the recipe until I find something perfect.
Do you have a good healthy dessert recipe?
