Jessie's Brownie Cookies

(image from googleimages)

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a brownie-a-holic. I LOVE brownies, brownie mix, brownie batter, brownie anything.......

Well, the other day I was asked to make something "brownie-ish" but since I knew someone else was going to bring brownies, I decided to come up with a brownie COOKIE. Of course I had to make them a little "healthy" otherwise I wouldn't feel justified in eating them...all.......

Here's what I came up with:

CREAM TOGETHER:
1/2 cup salted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder

ADD IN:
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour

STIR IN:
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts/pecans (optional)

Batter should feel much like cookie dough but look like brownie batter

Spoon onto cookie sheets like cookie dough
Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes

Since making them this weekend (its Wednesday today) I've been asked to make these twice again already by my family. They are a hit---at least I know they are when the hubby says, "Write that one down! Its a keeper!" Yay!

Let me know what you think?!
