How to make a soft Chocolate Chip Cookie using less of those unhealthy ingredients but still with the same great taste!

So, remember that one time, when someone told you in order to have soft chewy cookies you needed to add pudding mix to to your batter? Yeah, so not true!

What if I told you that you could have the most delicious soft chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies by using less butter and sugar in the batter? Would you believe me?

Well, believe me boys and girls, because its true!

I definitely don’t consider myself a baker by any means, but this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is my pride and joy! And definitely my little mans favorite. As soon as he sees that bag of chocolate chips his eyes brighter up and he immediately gets his stool out and pushes it to the counter to help mommy bake.

A “healthier” cookie that still has that soft texture I love. Shut the front door!

If you don’t believe me I dare you to go make these Chocolate Chip Cookies and tell me what you think!

To get started, preheat oven to 375. In a stand mixer, add 11 tablespoons of softened butter, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Lastly add one 10-12oz. bag of dark chocolate chips.  Scoop batter onto baking sheet {I use a baking silicon mat as well, helps to not brown the bottom of the cookie}.

  1. I’m all over those- I can never pass up on a good, soft chocolate chip cookie. Which reminds me that I have not made any in a very long time. I am going to wait for our new oven though- whenever we move (or have different kitchen to cook in) the first thing I test is baking chocolate chip cookies. I can’t wait to try these.

    1. I know right! They are totally the best, especially when they are warm and all gooey! So jealous that you are getting a new oven, new toys are always fun! 🙂

    1. I know right, reducing the butter and the sugar was just the trick and you feel better eating them because there is not as much “bad stuff”. 🙂

    I made these over the weekend and they were WONDERFUL. They retained their shape beautifully and were a great texture. I added walnuts and they were a huge hit! Definitely at the top of my go-to chocolate chip cookie list.

    1. Yeah! So glad to hear it! It is my go to chocolate chip recipe, in fact have some I just made the other day in my pantry! The walnut addition sounds killer, perfect for a little crunch! Thanks for the feedback Lauren!
