Recipe Makeovers: Low-Cal Holiday Cookies

We took our favorite holiday cookies recipes and sent them to our Healthy Test Kitchen for a makeover. The challenge: Keep each cookie's yummy taste while lowering fat and calories. The result: sweet success!
Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Cookies

Shae Rehmel, Pastry Chef at Five and Ten Restaurant in Athens, Georgia, amps up the health factor in a classic chocolate chip cookie by adding bananas -- a no-fail complement to the chocolate. Cashew butter, sunflower oil, and flaxseeds provide most of the fat in her recipe, but the majority is the heart-healthy kind.
