I am a huge fan of Joanna Gaines, and when I bought her cookbook, I was determined to make those recipes fit into my Weight Watchers diet.
Of course my first focus was on the chocolate chip cookie recipe! I LOVE chocolate chip cookies, and I had not found a WW version that really satisfied that craving. With swapping out a few ingredients for calorie-friendly substitutes, reducing the serving amount from FORTY to twenty (which is still a lot!), and modifying a few things, I was able to make these yummy 1 freestyle point cookies!

Just want the recipe? I gotcha.
Gather your ingredients! I’ve tried the recipe with both 1 egg and 2, and it comes out great both ways. So if you only have on egg, don’t let that deter you from making these!
Here are the chocolate chips <and they’re vegan!>
First, preheat your oven to 350º. Then mix the flour, baking soda and sea salt in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
Next, add “butter” and brown sugar to a stand mixer (or a bowl and use a hand mixer). Mix together for 2-3min.
Once it’s mixed together, add egg(s) and mix until blended, then add Vanilla Extract and mix until blended.
Next, add the dry mixture in and blend.
Once you get a cookie dough consistency, add in your chocolate chips and turn the mixer on for a second to evenly distribute the chocolate chips throughout the dough.
Scoop cookie dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Try to get them as evenly as possibly and you should get 20! I struggle with the even serving sizes, but I’m typically eating all 20 so I know the Weight Watchers Points anyways 🙂
Place in oven and bake for 10-12 min!
Let them cool for 1 min on the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack until cool. Place in an air-tight container or 3-4 days.
Voila! Thanks, Joanna Gaines!

1 cookie per serving. 1 Freestyle Point; 7 Smart Points; 2 Points Plus (all calculated with an online calculator – let me know if you find any discrepancies!)
If you are fine with reducing this down to 60 chocolate chips for the entire recipe, you can have 2 cookies for only 2sp. I like chocolate chips so this recipe is 2 cookies for 3sp!
