Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

    30 min

    These chocolate chip cookies are lower in sugar, thanks to calling for half sucralose sweetener, and half brown sugar. Use a good quality dark chocolate, with at least 70% cacao. You can choose to omit the nuts, if desired. These freeze well.

    150g light brown sugar + 300g chocolate =/= a "Low Sugar" recipe. By my calculations each cookie has 6.7g of sugar, which is actually higher than shop-bought biscuits.  -  26 Apr 2017
