Soft Low-Cal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have had a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips eyeing me from my cabinet for months.  I was going to make the good-ole Nestle version of chocolate chip cookies because they are my absolute favorite.  But lately, my diet has consisted of rich, heavy foods, so I felt obligated to attempt a lighter version.  After reading through some low calorie/low fat versions online, I set out to make my own.  They are light, fluffy and taste much more fatty then they actually are!

3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons light butter (softened)
3 tablespoons almond milk (or nonfat milk)
1 egg white
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix together the baking soda, salt and flour separately. Beat together the two mixtures, then add the chocolate chips.  Spoon onto a nonstick baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
