What can a diabetic (dieter) do when craving that delicious taste of chocolate?
I say "indulge"...yes you can eat chocolate and it will not raise your blood sugar; that is if you don't eat too much. I know it's hard to stop when these cookies are so delicious but I trust you to have the control you need and know when to stop. Eat these cookies slowly, while still warm, and let the chocolate melt in your mouth.
Makes 1 dozen
1 cookie= 1 serving
3 Tbsp butter (or heart-healthy margarine)
3 Tbap sugar substitute (Splenda)
1 egg white
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup enriched all-purpose flour*
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/8 baking soda
1 dash salt (optional)
2 tsp (skim)milk (or half & half**)
2 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate mini chips
Preheat oven to 375°F
In small bowl, blend butter,egg-white,sugar substitute and vanilla
In large bowl, mix flour, cocoa,baking soda and salt
Add milk to dry ingredients
Stir in butter mixture and blend well
Stir in chocolate chips
Drop teaspoonfuls of cookie dough onto greased cookie sheet
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or just until set
Remove from cookie sheet, and allow them to cool a little before eating.
The chocolate holds heat, so be careful when serving warm.
