Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately I've been reworking some of my favorite recipes in an attempt to make them healthier and lower in fat and calories.  I actually had some success with my traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and I think I like them better this way too.

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup shortening
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour

Cream butter and shortening together.  Add sugars and blend well.  Add eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt.  Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.  Add flours and combine well.  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto lightly oiled baking sheet.  Bake at 350° for 7 to 8 minutes.  Remove to rack and allow to cool.

I like that these cookies are lightly sweet and fluffier than my old recipe.  Plus much less greasy.  Not to mention the healthier aspect alleviates any guilt, ha, ha.

Try this one and let me know what you think.


  1. I have never made chocolate chip cookies that looked so fluffy! I have to try this out- they look delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)

  2. Oh these look so yummy !!!! I like a fluffy, substantial cookie that I can dunk into a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. The fact that are not as caloric is a plus too.
    I really appreciate all the recipes that you share with us. (Especially the cookies �� Your recipes are thrifty, easy to prepare and taste great.
