I'm confused. After doing some research I keep hearing that applesauce would be a good substitute for oil, not butter. Avocado would be a better substitute for butter. Hmm. I think I'll try it both ways and see. The thing is I'm not trying to create a vegan cookie, just a healthier one.

Hey everyone!

I've been working on chocolate chip cookies that would be significantly lower in fat and healthier than regular chocolate chip cookies. So far, all I can think of in terms of subbing ingredients are:

1/2 the amount of butter subbed by avocado
whole grain flour instead of regular white flour

Er. That's it so far. I heard of using apple sauce and pureed fruit but those are good substitutes if you are using oil in the batter, not butter. Avocado and pumpkin puree are better for butter substitutes. I don't like using margarine or low fat butter because they tend to be more watery and the batter becomes thin.

If anyone has any suggestions for substitutions. Please, please, please, let me know. It will not go unappreciated!
