"By replacing half the butter with applesauce and half the chocolate chips with raisins, I only slightly altered the original. They are still soft and tasty with half the fat." — MakeItHealthy

4 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
2 (3.4 ounce) packages
instant vanilla pudding mix
semisweet chocolate chips
Pros: very nice flavor, the applesauce is a subtle, yet pleasant flavor addition.
Cons: texture is light and spongy, not soft and chewy or crisp and crunchy. Kind of like a really heavy cupcake.
I appreciate the effort to make a healthier cookie, but I would rather relish one really good higher fat cookie than eat two of these low fat ones.
THESE ARE AWESOME! WHEN I MADE THESE I USED EGG SUBSTITUTE, SINCE IT IS PASTEURIZED I CAN TRY THE DOUGH, YUMMY! THE PUDDING MIX WAS A NEW IDEA FOR ME, THANKS FOR SHARING/
The evolution continues...I made the suggested changes from a reviewer in the original(full fat) recipe[listed as "Most Helpful Review"] and then halved the whole thing. I also used a 1.6 oz package of sugar free vanilla pudding in place of the regular and they were unbelievably good! However, as another reviewer remarked, chewy softness was lost a bit with the applesauce. So, in place of the applesauce I used the equal amount ripe, room temperature avocado and achieved that rich, melt-all-your-cares-away softens--the crowd had no idea, even my 7 and 4 yr old sons said they were the best cookies I'd ever made;)
