Nutrition information does include the chocolate chips (which you should include, too! :)). It was calculated using gram measurements, via caloriecount.com. Info is for 17 cookies and if you use dairy-free chocolate chips and milk, there will be NO cholesterol. (I think caloriecount calculated it based on chips with dairy; hence the cholesterol in the label above. I used EnjoyLife mini chips for my recipe, which have none.)
For the flour: Please please please do not sub a flour not listed in my recipes (such as regular whole-wheat flour) unless you are willing to take a risk that the results will turn out poorly. All too often, when people report trouble with one of my recipes, it turns out they’re using a flour I haven’t listed. Different flours work differently in each recipe, and I can only vouch for results if I’ve tried a certain one.
For the oil: If you want to replace it with applesauce, well… I guess you are free to do what you wish, but I definitely won’t vouch for that. Remember we need some healthy fats for optimum brain function, healthy hair and skin, proper vitamin absorption… do not fear the fat. *Steps off soapbox.*
For the sugar or xylitol: In any of my recipes that call for sugar, you can always substitute coconut sugar or evaporated cane juice. Always.
For the chocolate chips: I haven’t tried this recipe with Homemade Chocolate Chips. If anyone does, I’d love to know how it goes!
