Healthier Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe by  

"I love these cookies but I really wanted to try to make them a little lighter. I actually used sweet potato puree for some of the butter and juice squeezed from an orange for some of the sugar and they still taste great. It sounds a little odd but try it!!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, sweet potato, white sugar, brown sugar, and orange juice with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs whites one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract. Dissolve baking soda in hot water in a small bowl. Add to sweet potato batter. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until edges are nicely browned, about 10 minutes.

Loved it-- different texture, but very flavorful! I used butternut squash instead of sweet potato !

Awesome recipe, though I add one more teaspoon of vanilla and use dark brown sugar. If you like to make larger cookies as I do, this makes something closer to three instead of four dozen.
