When following ANY diet plan, it’s important to be able to have a good, reliable Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe on hand. Let’s face it, there are times when you absolutely must have some cookies, so why not have a good selection of Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipes to choose from?

Well, this low-calorie cookie recipe is one of my old standbys. These fabulous little chocolate chip cookies are so divinely decadent, you’ll feel like you are being really bad (which feels really good)! The cookies are small, but they pack quite a chocolate punch. And with just 1 Weight Watchers Point per 2 cookies, you can go ahead and grab a handful of these mini chocolate chip cookies without an ounce of guilt.

Just because you are dieting and eating healthy, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the treats you love, but having a healthier version of them sure helps keep you on track.

Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

– 2 tbsp light butter, softened (I like Brummel and Brown Spread)
– 2 tsp canola oil
– 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, dark-variety
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/8 tsp table salt
– 1 large egg white
– 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 tsp baking soda
– 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, about 1/2 cup

Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, oil, and sugar. Add vanilla, salt, and egg white; mix thoroughly to combine.
In a small bowl, mix together flour and baking soda; stir into batter. Add chocolate chips to batter; stir to distribute evenly throughout.
Drop rounded half-teaspoons of dough onto one or two large nonstick baking sheets, leaving a small amount of space between each cookie. Bake cookies until golden around edges, about 4 to 6 minutes; cool on a wire rack. Makes 24 servings.

Serving size is 2 cookies
Each serving = 1 Weight Watchers Point

    YUCK!! better to avoid sweets & when you CAN have them, have the REAL deal. This is nonsense.
    Any baking sans butter is a sin.

    I loved these. I added 1/4 cup flour, half a banana, a pinch of cinnamon and used Splenda sugar. Measured 1/2 tsp made 50 cookies. They were yummy. Hard part is only eating two. I think I had ten.

  3. Does anybody know how many smart points these would be please?
    Thanks x

  4. I don’t know how you got 48 cookies out if this recipe! I made them as small as possible and got 26. Still 1 point each is good

    • I made them twice if you use 1/2 tsp not heaping I always get from 45-50

  5. For those of you who are trying to calculate the points. It says it makes 24 servings, and each serving is 2 cookies. So, you should get 48 cookies using the half teaspoon.

    Ok, I am the worst baker, I made these cookies today, and I used splenda instead of sugar, I also could not get 48 cookies, I used a melon baller and I did get 40 cookies, not bad if I do say so myself, now for the taste, for a cookie that is 1 point, they are delish, almost forgot used mini chips, gave one to my husband to taste he also loved them, afer tasting he said I thought you were on a diet, I dont think cookies are on a diet, well hubby, they are when you make them weight watcher style, give them a try, no they are not toll house, but they are very good, you can tweek the recipe, as I said I used splenda, and mimi chips. 1 point cookies yeah!!!!

    • For the serving size of 2 cookies so 12 servings it is actually 3 points! I calculated the recipe on the recipe builder on my WW account… Still delicious but I’m sad they are still one point.

      • It says it makes 24 servings, 2 cookies per serving, which is 48 cookies.

  7. They actually arent to bad for a WW reciepe. I just made them and was pleasantly surprised. I did teaspoon sizes and a litle bigger. They satisfied my sweet craving well. :-)

  8. thank you so much!! i have such a big sweet tooth and i HAVE TO have my dessert. these are so good! better than most of the full fat recipes i’ve tried over the years. my batch yeilded 18, i guess i didn’t make them small enough! but i figure that about 1 1/2 pts per cookie so 3 cookies and half a glass of 1% milk and i had a perfect dessert! even my husband loved them and he isn’t a sweets person.

  9. This is misleading…I calculated this out and if you get 24 cookies from the recipe, then ONE cookie equals TWO points.

    • Do the math Reply

      It is actually not 24 cookies. It is 48 cookies. A serving size is 2 cookies and it yields 24 servings. 24×2=48. So 1 point for 2 cookies if you make 48 or 1 point for a larger cookie if you make 24.

  10. Just made these and they have a very strange taste to them. I was so excited to finally find a weight watchers friendly cookie recipe that did not use “fake sugar.” Trying to cook the next sheet of cookies a bit longer and hoping that will help.

  11. Could you please record the full nutritional value (calories, fat, carbs, etc.) if possible? Thanks!

  12. Whoops, I followed the recipe exactly, except for the part about using 1/2 tsp to measure the dough. I used a tablespoon like always. Mine made 8 good sized cookies. So if this is 24 pts for the entire recipe, that makes each of my cookies 3 pts. Still not terrible! 1 big cookie satisfied my sweet tooth. These cookies rival Tollhouse! Thanks for the recipe!

  13. When I built this recipe in the recipe builder, it shows as 2 points for
    one cookie, and 3 points for two.  Still, with my gluten-free flour and
    xanthan gum (less points than regular white flour for some reason), it
    shows as 1 point per cookie and 3 points for 2.  We might need to update
    this, it’s probably because of points plus.  Sorry to put a damper on
    things.  Still looks good though!

    • Sorry! addendum:  it makes 48 cookies!  So according to the recipe builder it would be 2 points for 2 cookies, and or with the GF flour (I use the “Better Batter” blend), it’s just 1!  I was reading “24 cookies” for some reason, and not 24 SERVINGS.  Awesome!  Sorry about that… Points+ just changed everything so I had to plug it in.

  14. I adapted these to be gluten free, I used an all-purpose gluten free flour and added 1 tsp xanthan gum, they came out beautifully! Just making a repeat batch now but i forgot to add the gum lol, so we are having chocolate chip pancakes for morning tea :D I’m sure they will taste just as delicious though :)

  15. How many calories are in a serving?  My husband wants to know! He was really surprised how good they were! :)

    • Unfortunately, I don’t have the nutritional info for all of my older recipes that have the old Weight Watchers Points on them. I’m working on rebuilding them so I can get the data needed to calculate the new Points Plus.

    • I baked them on parchment paper and had no problem removing them – they are small but Weight Watchers is about portion control folks!

  16. This recipe was posted in 2009. What is the Points Plus for this recipe? Tried a WW oatmeal cookie recipe and didn't like it, so would like to try this one :-)

    • This is the worst Weight Watchers cookie recipie. Maybe it worked for the original points but it’s 35 points for the batch with points plus AND the cookies are tiny. If you can get 24 they are still 1.5 points and tiny.

      Just make the Nestle recipie and make them 3 times smaller than normal and you’ll have a better tasting cookie for less points.

  17. I made these the other day and yes they were small ppl but they were still REAALLLLLLYYYY good! my Nephew loved them, and at 1 point for 2 why would anyone complain?! I wrote this recipe down and put it in my cook book sooo yum!

  18. WeightWatchers is not a diet, its a LIFESTYLE!!! Diet is a no-no word in my house haha

  19. i was just wonderin how big do you make them like the measurement. Like a tsp or tbs something like that

  20. i really like these cookies, 1 pt 4 2 makes it even better. i did not have any cho chips so i added some coco powder they turned out very good.

  21. These are great. I suggest greasing the pan, because they can be tricky to remove.

  22. I can't wait to try this recipe, but I do have a question. Will the point value change if I use milk chocolate chips? I do not like semi-sweet. Thanks!

    • Good question! I don't think the calorie difference will be enough to change the point value, but to be on the safe side, just compare the calories listed on the nutritional info labels of the chocolate chips when you are at the grocery store.

  23. This recipe is okay…

    I've been trying to perfect baking chocolate chip cookies with brummel for a few years now. They always turn out fluffy. I'm not on weight watchers (just a health nut) so I thought this recipe might be the solution I was looking for since I hadn't thought of adding canola oil. It didn't work, the cookies still turned out fluffy (with butter, they seem to flatten, then puff up just a bit. With brummel, they never get dense.) Also, these cookies are very small when you follow the recipe exactly. So, the second time I just made 12 bigger cookies.

    If you're looking for just something sweet, this cookie will do the trick. If you're looking for a good healthy cookie I'd recommend doing half butter and half brummel. (I also used a few more chocolate chips, used whole wheat flour and a little flax seed meal).

  24. I cannot find a light stick butter, even the one you mentioned, what other brands do you suggest?

    • You probably won't find the light butter in a stick form — you'll wanna get a tub version. You can also try Smart Balance butter, though my fave is the Brummel and Brown Spread.

  25. Hi~

    I just started WW and so glad I found your wonderful site!! Love everything about it.

    Is the photo of these cookies from the actual recipe? They look amazing!

    48 cookies from this small recipe must produce tiny cookies…more like a one bite drop…but when a craving hits, YUM! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe adventures.

    • This picture is just a generic chocolate chip cookie pic, but the Weight Watchers cookies do look about the same – just smaller. They are bite size, but they do make a great small snack when you need to satisfy that craving! Plus, they are just so darned cute!

    Just curious…where is this recipe from? It seems to decadent to only be 1 point per serving!

    • That's an actual Weight Watchers Recipe. But the cookies are quite small…not the regular sized chocolate chip cookies you are imagining. :)

      • When I built this recipe in the recipe builder, it shows as 2 points for one cookie, and 3 points for two.  Still, with my gluten-free flour and xanthan gum (less points than regular white flour for some reason), it shows as 1 point per cookie and 3 points for 2.  We might need to update this, it’s probably because of points plus.  Sorry to put a damper on things.
