Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Friday friends!

Healthy eating doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy all the goodness that comes from a hot, right out of the oven, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie. These cookies are made by browning the butter and adding just the right ingredients to make each chocolate morsel melt in your mouth. Replacing the sugar and brown sugar with Splenda sugar blends helps reduce the calories and amount of sugar per cookie. So with only 96 calories and 4 grams of fat, it’s hard to resist these Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Mmmm mmmm good!
