Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

The base of this recipe is derived from the Oat Bran Cookies recipe I posted previously. However, it incorporates some homemade dark chocolate chips that gives it that extra oomph! The best part is that you can make these cookies entirely from scratch in under 30 minutes!

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 16 packets of splenda
  • 1/6 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 egg white

  3. Spoon chocolate mixture into 2 inch rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove and place in freezer to cool and harden.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven 375 degrees.
  6. Make the cookie “dough” by using a food processor to grind and combine oat bran, baking soda, 1/8 ts salt, and brown sugar.
  7. Remove mixture from food processor and add 2 tbs skim milk and 1 second of cooking spray. Mix very well.
  8. Remove chocolate from freezer and cut into small squared chips.
