About This Healthy Recipe

Looking for a low-fat cookie that tastes fabulous? Try these chocolate almond cookies! The chocolate cookies are made with no butter and no oil. In fact, the only fat in the cookie comes from almonds, which contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. This healthy cookie even uses just egg whites instead of whole eggs to keep the fat content very low. In fact, you may be surprised to know that there is only 1g of total fat in each cookie. The rich chocolate flavor of the cookies is thanks to a mix of unsweetened cocoa powder and melted unsweetened chocolate, so you get a double dose of chocolatey goodness. Kids love these cookies, but their upscale flavor palette is equally pleasing to discerning adults. And at only 72 calories per cookie, this yummy treat won’t break the bank on calories if you are trying to watch your weight. That is, as long as you can stop at just one or two cookies, which may be hard to do since they taste so good!
