Hope everyone had a “happy hump day”! ;) 2 days till TGIF!!
For some reason I was not focused at work this afternoon, but productive nonetheless. I picked up a few groceries after work and got busy in the kitchen when I got home!
Speaking of the Hawks…I made an addicting snack mix for tailgating this weekend! Not point friendly!
I also made cookies, Chocolate Chip Softies to be exact. A Hungry Girl recipe, for only 1 point per cookie! SO good!
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
6 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
2 1/2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. brown sugar, not packed
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips (flour, Splenda, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt). Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (applesauce, pumpkin, egg substitute, and vanilla extract). Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir until completely blended. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Spray a large baking pan with nonstick spray, and spoon batter into 8 evenly spaced circles. Place pan in the oven for about 10 minutes (until cookies appear done and feel firm). Remove pan from the oven and allow cookies to cool slightly. For best results, enjoy while the cookies are still warm and the chips are still melty! MAKES 8 SERVINGS
