Cholesterol Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons non-virgin olive oil or avocado oil
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Dark Brown Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 large egg whites, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 bag (12 oz) semi sweet chocolate chips or chunks
- 3/4 cup walnut or pecan pieces
- *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or butter well. Set aside.
- In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients beat oil, sugar, brown sugar and salt until well combined.
- Add egg whites one at a time waiting for previously added amount to be fully incorporated. Add vanilla extract.
- Sift together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon and add to above. Mix as little as possible and just until dough comes together.
- Mix in chocolate and nuts until combined.
- Scoop dough in 2 tablespoon amounts onto prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the center is nearly set.
- Let rest on cookie sheets for a few minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
