I asked Cybergranny to check this recipe. She found 2 changes--136 cal. and 3 gr. fiber. Point count in upper 2 pt. range. She suggests substituting f.f. cream cheese and Splenda for part of the sugar. You can read her reply in the Mess Hall. I would call these 2 1/2 pts. each as written. Enjoy.

Hi Selma, I finally got around to posting about these cookies. I found them delicious. I searched and searched for days for the Heart to Heart cereal and never could find it so I just bought a box of Kashi Go Lean and used that. It worked just fine. To lower the points, I omitted the nuts and added reduced fat chocolate chips (I have a shelf full of them in the freezer since they don't make them anymore, I stocked up). I used 3/4 cup. I also omitted the sugar and replaced it with Splenda and a tablespoon of molasses. I used FF cream cheese and reduced fat peanut butter because that is what I had on hand.

 

I also used a stainless steel scoup and it made exactly 36 cookies.

 

Wonderful recipe and it is definitely a keeper!


Barbara

Barbara,

 

Thanks for the input. I made a second batch using f.f. cream cheese, 1 c. lt. brown sugar. The batter was much drier and harder to handle, but they tasted great. I did notice that they were less crisp, probably due to the total lack of fat. I used 1/2 c. reg. choc. chips and got 30 cookies. I use an ice cream scoop, but do not fill it compleely, so my size isn't uniform. I will try to use a measuring cup next time for better control. They sure are good for 2 pts.
