Q&A: Low Fat/Light cookie recipes?

Question by saratgoo: Low Fat/Light cookie recipes?
Anyone have any low fat/light recipes for cookies? Also, does anyone know if substituting applesauce for oil (as done in cake mixes) will work for cookies?
Any thoughts on Splenda bake?

The absolute best resource you can find for healthy food, lower fat and lower calorie food swaps, finding and ordering hard to locate healthy food options. reviews of healthy products, guides to eating out healthily, great healthy recipes, and tons of other stuff is http://hungrygirl.com/ which is run by a woman who knows what she’s talking about! I subscribe to the website’s daily emails and have met with nothing but success and satisfaction buying the products recommended (which are only endorsed if the people running the website have actually eaten and love the product), making the recipes offered, and trying the healthy swaps. Everything you need to know is there, including this super simple recipe that I’ll leave you with. Instead of swapping applesauce for oil in a cake mix, simply combine one can of pure pumpkin with a boxed brownie mix and bake according to package directions for unbelievably healthy fudgy brownies. Check out HG, and good luck!

    when my wife was diagnosed as “border line diabetic” I got a diabetic cookbook and it had some really good (for dietetic) recipes for cookies etc.
    as for splenda-my experience is that the cookies don’t seem to hold together very well-if you use a 50/50 blend of sugar and splenda it works better, BUT it take some experimentation to get the sweetness right-until you get it right the cookies will taste either not sweet enough or too sweet (mine were not sweet enough) I made a cheese cake with cottage cheese that wasn’t to bad.the good news–think of ass the mistakes you get to eat along the way.he he
    I don’t know what you will find (I’ve not tried low fat/light), but you might try http://www.recipelink.com/copycat
