The other day we had some sort of freak cold front roll through here in June and let me just tell you that the 69 degree weather that day had me inspired to turn my oven on for one of the FEW times during the summer. I ended up making chili and these absolutely delicious Lightened-Up S'more Chocolate Chip Cookies.
What’s a s’more cookie? Well, it’s everything that you love about a s’more… put into a cookie! Not just any cookie though. The base chocolate chip cookie here is pretty damn good all on it’s own. But, add on the graham, chocolate chunks, and marshmallows and you’ve got one heavenly cookie.
Seriously, these cookies are so good that I had one for breakfast the other day. BREAKFAST. And you better believe that I wasn’t feeling an ounce of guild over it.
To lighten these cookies up, I used a light butter and dark chocolate. I also subbed in some stevia brown sugar in place of traditional brown sugar to lower the sugar content. Other than that, these cookies are pretty true to their original.
Don’t get it twisted either, these cookies are BIG nice cookies too. Not average little blips of chocolate chip cookies. No, no! These cookies are bigger than the palm of my hand and fairly thick too. There’s a little crunch to the outside and the middles are soft and gooey.
These cookies are definitely one of my new favorites.
