This is my fourth Friday Night Dessert Night but my first attempt at a dessert with fewer calories and I have to admit, it is pretty tasty. These cookies would be great with a cup of coffee or a sippy cup full of milk ;). I found the recipe at eatbetteramerica.com. An added bonus - This site offers all the nutritional information at the bottom of each recipe.
Healthified Chocolate-Drizzled Graham Cookies
1/4 packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces (1/2 cup for in the cookies, 1/2 cup for the drizzle)
1/2 tsp shortening
1. Preheat oven at 375. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter for about 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Beat until fluffy.
2. Beat in eggs, honey, and vanilla until mixed in. Gradually, beat in both all-purpose and wheat flours. Using a spoon, mix in chocolate chips.
3. Roll into 1-inch balls (I used a small cookie scoop and they came out perfect!). With a small spoon, slightly flatten the tops of the cookies. Bake for 9 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp. shortening, stirring continually.
Let cool (only a little) and transfer to a Ziploc baggie. Cut a small hole in one corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate on the cookies.
5. Taste test!
