|Girl on Bike's Chocolate Chip Cookies|
This Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe drops the fat down less than half and cuts the sugar by a third (compared to traditional Toll house cookie recipe). The coconut oil ads a delicious subtle flavor, and along with the applesauce, helps cut the cholesterol down to only 1/4 that of the original recipe. The applesauce and oats help add healthy fiber.
