I have been using whipped butter for a while now, but I never got the chance to tell you about my experience with using it. Regular butter has about 100 calories per serving and whipped butter is about 70 calories preserving. Not only that the fat content is much lower then regular butter. It has the same flavor as regular butter, but not as many ingredients as margarine has. Whipped butter is very light and airy; it’s full of flavor whether it’s soft, hard, or melted.It’s a wonderful substitute for butter if you’re looking for a low calorie replacement and you’re just not into margarine.
I am a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies but most start at 100 calories for one cookie. Low-fat chocolate chip cookies are much lower in calories thanks to the whipped butter and coconut sugar. If you’re a fan of Chips Ahoy soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies, then these are the cookies you’re looking for. They are soft, chewy and full of chocolate. I am working on a crispy low fat chocolate chip cookie for all you crispy cookie lovers.
Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
½ cup coconut sugar (you could use brown sugar)
¼ cup regular sugar
¼ cup whipped butter (softened)
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp. milk (I used almond)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Recipe Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees; in a small bowl mix dry ingredients and set aside. Cream butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and almond milk; mixing until the ingredients are combined. Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop tablespoons of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown around the edges.
