Have a (chunky lola) cookie!

Tomorrow is a cookie swap party at my work and somehow I thought it was a good idea to participate. What can I say, I love a good excuse to use my new Flour Bakery cookbook!

I had a plan – I was going to make the cookies smaller, calculate their Weight Watchers Points+ and track the 1 cookie I was going to try for quality control.


After Alicia raved about them, I decided to make the chunky lola cookies from the Flour Bakery cookbook. I used a 1.5T cookie scoop instead of 1/4 cup (making them almost 3 times smaller than they are at the bakery!) and used unsweetened coconut (I almost skipped the coconut. If you have the cookbook and make these – don’t skip the coconut! It’s amazing).

So back to my plan… I made exactly 24 cookies required for the cookie swap party + 1 for me and 2 for Adam. Each of my smaller cookies calculated to 3 Points+ – not too bad and these are REAL cookies, with real butter, sugar, chocolate chips, pecans and coconut. The whole deal. It IS possible to enjoy a cookie and stay on plan.


I ate one. It was crispy on the outside with a buttery crumb that instantly melted in my mouth. Heaven! Then I had a few bites of cookie dough (let’s call it cookie #2). This is when I knew it was time to WALK AWAY FROM THE COOKIES.


I did. And then Adam only had one of his (even though he said they were incredible) so I ate the other. That’s 3 cookies, also known as 10 Points+ and 9 points above my daily allowance. I never made it to the gym.

Guys, I’m going to be in so much trouble at the cookie swap party tomorrow. I get weak in the knees just thinking about all that glorious sugar!

Can you stop at just one cookie?
