You won’t need a campfire to enjoy these Nearly No Fat S’mores Cookies!
What will you do with a partial bag of Mini Marshmallows in the cupboard?
Add them to your Nearly No Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies, which equals, Nearly No Fat S’mores Cookies.
Oh my goodness, I’m so glad I added those little marshmallows! These chocolate chip cookies are even softer than the original popular Nearly No Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies. Oh! And they are soft frozen too, you can bite into one directly from the freezer!
Try one of these yummy options too:
- Add a thin layer of peanut butter for a little protein and extra deliciousness. I used 1/2 to 1 tsp for each cookie. Spread peanut butter over the tops when the cookies are still slightly warm.
- Make party s’mores by substituting 1 1/2 Tbsps of sprinkles for the chopped nuts.
To Make Nearly No Fat S’mores Cookies, You Will Need These Ingredients:
- Unsweetened applesauce
- Light or dark brown sugar ~ I used light
- Milk or a non-dairy type for vegans or those sensitive to milk ~ I use soy or rice milk.
- All-purpose flour or a gluten-free baking blend. Remember – always stir flour before measuring
King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure For Measure Flour works especially well with this recipe.
- Baking powder ~ corn-free if needed
- Cornstarch ~ tapioca starch if needed
- Chopped nuts ~ I used walnuts (omit for nut-free
- Dandies All Natural Mini Marshmallows (regular mini marshmallows are fine if you have no allergies to ingredients) Honestly, I throw in a couple of handfuls until it looks like enough!
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips. I used an Enjoy Life Allergy-Friendly brand.
- Peanut butter or other kinds of nut butter for optional topping
WW points plus count 3.3 points for each cookie. With 1/2 tsp peanut butter on top, each cookie becomes slightly under 4 points.
I hope you love them…I do!!
