65 Calories Double Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Yes you read the title right, today I'm going to be sharing my recipe for "65" calorie cookies. They are honestly my favourite little sweet treat. They satisfy my sweet tooth and you can have 2 for less calories than a normal double chocolate chip cookie. So here's what you'll need

1/4 cup butter, softened 
1/2 cup sugar
 1/4 cup brown sugar
 1 egg white 
1 tsp vanilla extract
 1 cup all-purpose flour 
1/2 tsp baking soda
 1/4 tsp salt 
1/4 cup cocoa powder 
1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips 

Preparation: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars together with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg white and vanilla and mix until well blended. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Gradually add flour mixture to egg and sugar. Use a wooden spoon to work the dough together. Don’t worry if the dough seems a little crumbly at first. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough by the teaspoonful on to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat if you have one. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. I personally like to sprinkle mine with a light dusting of powder sugar but that's totally optional.
