Weight Watchers Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies - 1 pt. each

Adapted from Weight Watchers.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour*
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder OR dark chocolate powder (I used Hershey's)
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spoon the flour into a cup, level off, pour into a medium-sized mixing bowl
  3. Add baking soda and salt - stir
  4. With a mixer in a separate bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy
  5. Gradually add sugar and beat well
  6. While still beating, add cocoa and egg whites
  7. Once combined, slowly add flour mixture until blended
  8. Stir in chocolate chips
  9. Spray baking sheet and drop by teaspoons onto sheet
  10. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes
  11. Cool on pans a couple of minutes until firm and then transfer to cooling racks
Makes 40 cookies (see review). *Do not go over 1 cup flour. There isn't a ton of liquid in this recipe and if there's extra flour, they likely won't turn out as well.


I love these cookies. They are a GREAT option when needing a chocolate fix. I made two batches - one with regular unsweetened cocoa powder and one with dark chocolate. Since I'm a big dark chocolate fan, I do like those ones a bit more, but both are good. It would be easy to make these cookies to bring to a party or to serve to guests without them even knowing it's a healthier cookie recipe. I seriously need to make these more often. Yum!

The key to keeping these cookies low in calories is to count the number of cookies dropped on the sheet. I count to make sure I have 40 cookies. Then I know the serving size is correct.

  1. Oooh - a cookie that I won't feel guilty eating! Yum!

  2. Was the difference in color from the two kinds of chocolate used, or did I miss something in the description?

  3. Yes, sorry I missed that in the description. The two different colors are for the two kinds of chocolate powder.
