Cholesterol-Free (almost Fat-Free) Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: approximately 40 cookies

What You'll Need:
2c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4c. brown sugar
1/4c. white sugar
1/2c avocado meat, mashed (about one med/large avocado)
1/2c applesauce
1 (3oz) box instant vanilla instant pudding
1/2c egg substitute
1/4c mini chocolate chips

What to Do:
Preheat oven at 350.
In a small sized bowl, combine the flour and baking soda together and set aside.  In a separate bowl, blend the brown sugar, white sugar, mashed avocado, applesauce and pudding mix together until smooth. Add in egg substitute and blend well.  Allow the mixture to sit for about 5 minutes, until set. Gradually mix in the flour/baking soda combination, until well blended.  Last, mix in the chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonful onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  The cookies may look a bit lighter in color than regular cookies.

Quick Tips:
* You can use wheat flour in place of white, the cookies may be a bit more dry
* If you prefer, you can add in up to 1/2c chocolate chips, I like to keep the amount a bit lower, to reduce the overall fat content.
