I found a cookie with less than 100 calories each, 3 g fat, 1g fiber & 2g protein… that’s chocolate chipped, chewy & made with real sugar! It’s from a Cooking Light magazine two years ago but I’ve made it, given the recipe to others & stand with it as a great go to cookie. It uses imperial measurements, but thankfully included american standard as well in ().
