Weight Watchers Mini-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, I realize the irony of this, but this baking gal has started Weight Watchers. Well, anyways, I was perusing their awesome e-tools and recipes, and there was a recipe for mini-chocolate chip cookies, 1-point for 2 of them! I was instantly intrigued, and had to make them. 10 minutes later, I had cookies. And they are good! Not the same as regular cookies, but they are soft and sweet and hit the spot when I'm in the mood for dessert.

2 Tbsp butter, softened
2 tsp canola oil
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp table salt
1 large egg white(s)
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. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
