Super Chocolate Fudge Cookies

I think I have come up with the softest chocolate cookie recipe ever!! Seriously, these cookies are like eating fudge!
No further intro is needed.  Just in case you were wondering though...yes, they are still good for you! Let's get baking!

Ingredients...
Chocolate protein powder, sugar free fat free chocolate pudding mix, plain nonfat greek yogurt, egg substitute, canned pumpkin, vanilla, baking powder, chocolate chips, and sweetener if you wish.

You know these are going to be super chocolatey with two powdered chocolate ingredients!
No fanciness with this recipe.  Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl!! 
It is looking delicious already.  So thick!!
It is absolutely ok to lick the spoon at this point...quality control is very important.  We want to be sure our batter is sweet enough, right?

Don't forget the chocolate chips!!
Add as much or as little as you like. You could leave them out but I am going for SUPER chocolate cookies this time!

The batter is pretty sticky so you will want to use parchment or a silicon baking mat.  If you don't have either, nonstick spray should work. Just drop the batter onto your cookie sheet.
I got 9 cookies! The best part? You will be able to eat them all for under 300 calories! No lie...

Bake at 350 for about 15-18 minutes.  
Goodness gracious!! The chocolate smell coming from these cookies is heaven! Seriously, I am pretty sure this is what heaven smells like.  At least I hope it does!

I didn't even wait for them to cool.  I may have burnt my tongue a bit, but it was totally worth it!
It is like eating ooey, gooey, warm chocolate fudge!! Without the guilt because these cookies are actually healthy! Each one is only 33 calories! The whole batch is packing over 30 grams of protein too! Pre or post workout cookies?! I think so!
I am not sorry to say that this first batch is already gone!!! 
And the hubby didn't even get one bite...sorry!
No worries though, these are going to be made quite frequently! Remember, you can always double or triple the recipe!! :)

    1. You can, but they wont have quite the same texture. And banana has a very strong flavor so they will taste very bananay... Steamed and mashed sweet potato is a great sub!

    1. Should work!! Might want to add a little bit more pudding mix since regular yogurt is not as thick as greek :)
