guilt free protein chocolate chip cookies

Recipe by

Guilt free cookies? Yes please! High in protein, low in fat and sugar. Each cookie is only 1 point with Weight Watchers! I was afraid that these cookies would turn out dry and dense since I eliminated the fat component. They are dense but not dry! They have a bit more of a cakey texture but I promise they are still delicious! My 4 year olds couldn't get enough! To add a bit more moisture you could add in a little coconut or olive oil. Dipping these in a glass of cold milk is absolutely divine! Super simple, fairly quick, and scrumptious! Give it a try!
