WW Chocolate Chip "Cakies"



Whenever I go back on WW - I always start by whipping up a batch of these! They are only 2 points and they remind me of the chocolate drop cookies my mom used to make. I found the recipe in the "Simply the Best" WW cookbook.

WW Chocolate Chip "Cakies"
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 unsalted stick margarine
1/3 cup fat-free egg substitute
3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Arrange the oven racks to divide the oven into thirds. Preheat oven to 375.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at high speed, beat the sugar, margarine and egg substitiue until light and fluffy. With the mixer at low speed, gradually add the flour mixture, the yogurt, vanilla and chocolate chips, stir until just combined (do not over mix).
4. Drop the dough by Tablespoons onto 2 ungreased baking sheets, making 24 cookies. Bake until firm, about 10 minutes. Cool completely on a rack. Store in an air-tight container for 3 to 4 days. I keep in frig and microwave them for 8 seconds.
Add a dollop of Fat Free Cool whip and you are set for the night!

I'm alittle concerned because the nutrition facts you have here doesn't calculate to 1 pt. when you use the Weight Watchers point finder....

I'm big on counting points, so is it really 1 pt per serving and the nutrition facts are wrong? Or are the nutrition facts correct and they really are 2 pts each? Is the serving size 1 cookie?

They look really tasty though! :)

Jennie - You are absolutely right! I have never calculated the points myself since the cookbook lists the points as 1. When I got my calculator out and did the points it is 2. Sorry about that. I will change the info on the previous page. Thank you for "Pointing" that out!
