Summertime Series: Less-Guilt Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 4, 2010

For those who are looking for an easy, crowd-pleasing dessert for today’s feast, here is your recipe.  And the best part?  These cookies are made without butter and egg yolks, making them a great choice for those watching their cholesterol intake.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbs canola oil
2 1/2 tbs brown rice syrup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 egg whites
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine flour through salt and set aside.  In a large bowl, beat oil with rice syrup and sugars.  Add egg whites, then vanilla.  Add flour mixture and fold in chocolate chips.  Preheat oven to 375º and refrigerate dough for 1 hour.  Remove dough from refrigerator and form into balls for cookies (dough will be sticky due to lack of animal fat).  Bake 12-14 minutes (depending upon how big you make your cookies!).  Double recipe for a large group.
