Well definitely not this girl! I strongly encourage it 🙂

There’s a million chocolate chip cookie recipes out there so why choose this one?

Well because it’s super easy to make and it’s swimsuit friendly 🙂

Each cookie has only 124 calories! So go ahead, indulge and grab 2!

Only 33 days until the sunny beaches of Puerto Vallarta! Can you tell how excited I am! 🙂

I bought 2 new swimsuits and 5 dresses! And I’ve been working out like a maniac…

And I finally went tanning yesterday! It feels soo good to finally have some color 🙂

So after a long workout, go ahead reward yourself with a skinny cookie! You earned it 🙂

Stars: 5

Level: Easy

Comments: This cookies rock! They are lightened up with the applesauce but are still just as yummy!

Negatives: None.

Will I make these again? Yes. I will make extra dough, shape it into balls and freeze it and then bake cookies as I crave them 🙂
