2 1/2 tablespoons light-colored corn syrup
3/4 cup packed brown sugar

This recipe was good, but not outstanding. I didn't have enough chocolate chips so I used half chocolate chips and half M&M's. My boyfriend said he could taste the wheat flour in them...and my roomate said they were good but that "you can definately tell theyre light." Even though they didn't have any oatmeal in the they kind of had the texture of oatmeal cookies . They weren't the prettiest cookies in the world either but I personally enjoyed the taste a lot. I wouldnt serve these to a crowd but if youre looking for a good tasting cookie under 100 calories I'd go for this recipe.
The best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had made! The cookies stay very soft, even after they've cooled completely.
This is a great "healthy" version of the chocolate chip cookie. I will definitely make this again, but might cut back 1/4 cup of sugar. A big hit with the family!
I would have to say that I was looking forward to making a cookie that was under 100 calories and that had a pretty good rating and a title of "Tried and True cookie recipes". I wasn't much impressed at all. Not sure if it was the after taste that got me or the texture, but even my 5 year old said "These are the horriblest cookies ever". I wasn't going to say that, but I won't make them again.
