1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Fat from Olivia oil or coconut ,unrefined, would be great, but a stick of butter? I may use a couple tablespoons at most. Also, a lot of sugar for a so called healthy recipe. I would use just the brown sugar and add some stevia. Add some applesauce for rest of fat. Can also scale back on chocolate chips, using mini's gives you chocolate in each bite with using less over all :) Chopping your dark chocolate chips up too :)Try using a grater to grate walnuts or macadamias into recipe too.

I think these look great. I'm going to give them a try. Fat is good for you if you use moderation. In fact metabolizing food requires it. Sugar not so much so this is a once-in-while "dessert".

You obviously are not a baker, it there is not some fat in the dough it will turn into a cracker and a pretty dry and hard one at that. The saturated fat is coming from the chips. Besides, you are not suppose to eat a bunch of them.

I don't think butter and olive oil are necessary. The saturated fat is 5 grams!
