What are the key ingredients to make these Low Point Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies?

  • Vegetable Oil: Now, I know you’ll look at the ingredient list and see vegetable oil and think to yourself  “These cookies can’t be low in points.” But…they are!  I made these cookies 3 different times to try to perfect them. I made the first batch with 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce and the texture just wasn’t right, then I made them using 1/3 cup light butter and they were greasy and did not taste “right”so I decided to use 1/3 vegetable oil-and the texture was right on point! To my surprise and maybe your surprise-when I added the recipe in the WW app- with the 1/3 cup vegetable oil-I was shocked to see that they ended up being 3 Smrtpoints regardless if you use the unsweetened applesauce or 1/3 cup vegetable oil.
  • Pillsbury sugar free Devil’s Food Cake mix:These Low Point Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies require only a few ingredients. The base of the cookies are made using a box of Pillsbury sugar free Devil’s Food Cake mix.   However, if you can’t find or locate the Pillsbury sugar free Devil’s Food Cake mix you can make your own using: 
  • 2 cups white all purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute ( I use Lakanto Golden Monkfruit) 
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar substitute ( I use Lakanto Classic Monkfruit 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Stir until well combined. You will use this mix in replace of the cake mix in the directions. 

What makes these Low Point Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies soft?

The key to keeping these cookies soft is to not overcook them. You’ll want to bake until just set-which means that the edges of the cookie should be slightly firm or dry to the touch and the top of the cookie should no longer look too wet. This is most often given with chewy cookies, or  brownie-like chocolate cookies where you want to make sure that the finished cookie is not overdone and the amount of browning around the edge does not necessarily give you a definitive result on how done it is. The vegetable oil makes these cookies soft, almost cake-like.

 

How do I make these Low Point Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies?

The SmartPoint values and nutritional information is estimated and figured based off the brand of ingredients listed in the recipe using the WW app. The SmartPoint values may vary depending on the brand of ingredients used. To calculate the Smartpoint value on a recipe you will need to enter the ingredients in the WW app manually by creating a recipe using the recipe builder. The WW app does not recognize the zero point ingredients in recipes and will calculate it based only off the nutritional information; which will not be accurate.

Could you substitute the canola oil with pureed applesauce to reduce points further?

Hi Robin '

Yes, you could. The texture will be a bit off (they have a tendency to spread more and will be a bit flat) but they will work!

Thanks
