Healthier Chocolate White Chip Cookies

I’m one of those people who will happily, and loudly, admit that I have a serious dessert problem, especially when it comes to chocolate. Now I could totally get away with this pre-babies, but not anymore….my waistline is jiggling at me like it’s teasing me. When your muffin-top can tease you, it may be time to pay a little more attention to what you eat. One way to ease into that is to enjoy these Healthier Chocolate White Chip Cookies!

Okay, so I admit I in no way INTENTIONALLY made these healthier. I’d been craving my No Cake Mix Red Velvet Cookies for a long while, and by golly I was going to enjoy them….and then I could watch my nutrition better 🙂 However, I was a total GOOF and forgot to put in a very crucial ingredient…..SUGAR! Uh…ooops?

Luckily, they turned out just great….not the same cookies, mind you…but still delicious, moist and a great brownie-like chocolate taste to them! Being healthier while still enjoying a delicious dessert without even meaning to? Booyah, baby!


  • 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 2 sticks Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar, packed
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 2 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup White Chocolate Chips, if desired
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Mini Chocolate chips, if desired


  1. Combine all of the ingredients (except the chips) in a large bowl until well-mixed. Gently stir in the chips.
  2. Refrigerate your dough for about 2-3 hours, so your cookies won’t spread as much.
  3. When ready to bake, do so at 350 Degrees F for about 10-12 minutes. Do NOT overcook, so they can maintain their moist deliciousness.
