Lori Brothers on Healthy Living: Face up to Sugar Monkey business



Chocolate Clove Cookies


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 egg whites


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and cloves.

Mix in corn syrup and egg whites until just blended.

Drop cookie dough by teaspoonful onto parchment-lined cookies sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Dough will be sticky.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly firm to touch. Do not overbake.

Move parchment paper with cookies on it to wire racks to cool completely.

This low-fat cookie recipe yields about 30 cookies. Store them in air tight containers.

Nah, it's probably not that interesting.
I don't know. I'm afraid of what I might find out.
