Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

So today we were having a lunch at our place and I needed to make some dessert so decided I’ll make them on the healthier side. I used the recipe behind the Nestle chocolate chips bag and made some substitutions. I knew I could replace oil with applesauce but didn’t know how much. In previous recipes I just substituted half and they still tasted good. I went searching online again and found I could fully substitute the oil but it would change the consistency of the cookie. I wanted to fully get rid of the oil so gave it a shot! And instead of using white and brown sugar I used honey although I heard it all ends up the same in your system. If you have any know how about that please enlighten me! Send me a comment! So the cookie came out not bad if you’re ok with a more cake-like, moist cookie.
