Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

This classic chocolate cookie recipe gets a healthy makeover with less sugar and whole wheat flour. A dusting of powdered sugar on these Chocolate Crinkles makes them a nice holiday treat.


  • Servings:
  • Serving Size: 1


  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  2. In a large bowl, mix chocolate, oil, granulated sugar and vanilla. Stir in egg and egg whites. In another bowl, combine flours, salt and baking powder. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture and stir until combined. Cover; refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
