Skinny German Chocolate Cookies

May 5, 2010

These  little cookies pack a powerful chocolate punch!  While waiting in the doctor’s office I was looking through a magazine and found this recipe that looked pretty good.  Of course I had no paper with me so I had to scribble it onto one of those annoying cards in the magazine that I normally ripe out and throw away.  You might ask how is this cookie healthy for you?  Chocolate isn’t all bad when it is dark chocolate or in the baking powder form, it actually has some benefits. This recipe uses less sugar, one egg, and flax meal which adds fiber while keeping the calories down.   Honestly this is the first time I love a cookie that is on the healthy side and I think if you give them a try you will too.

Warning: it doesn’t matter how healthy the cookie is, if you eat 4 or 5 while baking you might as well call that a meal!
