Don’t you love happy mistakes?

Last week someone tweeted me and told me they made my Best Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever but accidentally left out the butter and they came out great. So naturally I had to see for myself, and I couldn’t believe it, they were great! For this recipe I also reduced the sugar a bit since I am adding sprinkles, they worked out great.

Since then I’ve been obsessing on turning them into ice cream sandwiches. I mentioned the other day on my Very Berry Banana Fro-Yo Shake how much I love Stonyfield’s frozen vanilla yogurt so I put it to the test. Fourth of July will be here in no time so I made them red, white and blue. Colored sprinkles would be pretty too!

These are a little messy, but fun to make with the kids. You don’t have to make the whole batch, you can make as little as one sandwich as needed or make them all. The only advice I have is make sure the frozen yogurt is really cold, and after you dip them into the sprinkles place them back in the freezer until they set. Keep them frozen until you are ready to eat, enjoy!

Prep: 15 mins
Total: 1 hr
Yield: 12 servings
Serving Size: 1 sandwich


  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups organic fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, I used Stonyfield's
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°.  Line two cookie sheets with non-stick silicone baking liners such as Silpats (I highly recommend for best results) with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to blend.
  • In another bowl, whisk the sugars, egg white, applesauce and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
  • Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more “crumbly” than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Drop by level spoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Bake 8 - 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and let them stand 5 minutes before removing the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks.
  • When completely cooled, place 1 1/2 tablespoons frozen yogurt (I used a cookie scoop) in between 2 cookies and sandwich together.
  • Roll the edges in colored sprinkles, place on a platter and return to the freezer until ready to eat.

    Oh my goodness!  These were not only easy to make, they were beyond delicious!  I made them with my daughter who is 9 years old.  She loved rolling them in the sprinkles and we both loved eating them!!  Thank you!

  3. What an awesome idea! I've used applesauce in brownies, but never in cookies. I've got to give it a try.

    Where can you find the pastry flour? I want to make these for the 4th they look amazing!!

  5. THANK YOU for these!!!! Gracious they are divine!!!! I made them last night and am making a second batch tonight. The perfect treat to have ready in the freezer. L O V E.

  6. My cookies always turn out extremely cakey and chewy (not the good kind). They don't have the texture that is shown in your pictures. They're always super puffed up and not flatter like yours. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The only thing different I'm doing is using all purpose flour and no pastry flour (could that be the reason)? Whenever I try adding applesauce to cookie recipes, I end up with this problem and I'm really confused as to why you were able to avoid this problem.

  7. Hi-
    I have been looking to make WW friendly cookies and I see that the old recipe has 5 points for 2 cookies. If the cookies are made with applesauce like the recipe above what is the point plus value?


  8. how many points is one of these ice cream sandwichs because if i read correctly it said 4 points for one cookie….

    I made just the cookies last night only to realize that i was out of eggs and that my husband had eaten all the applesauce lol so I had to improvise. I looked in my fridge and only saw Vanilla Custard Baby Gerber so I thought 'what the heck'! To my surprise they came out pretty good 😉

  10. One time i made brownies and forgot to add the eggs! Surprisingly they tasted great! They were really chewy and good!

    I made the cookies, and they were tasty. I cut the sugar in half for my taste, and they were still good. I didn't have the frozen yogurt, so I put a cookie in a bowl, added sliced strawberries and drizzled with a little plain greek yogurt sweetened with about a 1/2 tsp of reduced sugar strawberry preserves and a dollop of whipped topping. It was delicious.

  12. Gina, made these for tomorrow and of course we had to taste test them! YUMMY!!

    Couldn't find nonfat fro-yo in my area, so I got Fat Free ice cream. Still good. My husband told me I better go ahead and make another batch!

  13. I live in Denver so have problems pulling recipes from the internet since most don't come with instructions on baking at altitude…do you know how to tweak this recipe for altitude?

  14. I love your website! I have cooked and baked several things off of it and they have all been fantastic! I wrote a post about these cookies today on my webiste. Please feel free to check it out if you wish. Thanks for all the yummy recipes!

    i just made the cookies and i used homemade pear sauce (i didn't have any applesauce) and carob nibs (unsweetened) instead of chocolate chips. yummy! 🙂 thanks for the recipe

  16. Um no joke – I completely forgot the brown sugar and they STILL tasted awesome! Made a double batch and delivered them around! LOL realized later when I was putting them into my recipe builder on eTools that I messed up! Made fewer cookies, but less sugar=awesome!

  17. I linked to your blog today on my healthy choice challenge and gave my readers your link so they could use you as a source for healthy food recipes! I love your site and your recipes.


  18. These look amazing. I just found your site, am following you on Pinterest, and pinned your site too!
    I'm on WW and this is so helpful. I think there's something wrong with the sidebar (or maybe my computer? or user error? 😉 ) though, when I click on the points + tags, no recipes show?

  19. These were SO good! My sister and I had 2 each, but then my husband came in and ate the rest in 2 days. Good thing they weren't from Cold Stone 😉 But seriously, I thought they were fantastic!

  20. These cookies weren't to bad.

    They defiantly taste like a healthy cookie but for some odd reason, the next day, they tasted 100 x better. Sort of like a chewy "Mrs.Field's" type of cookie.

    I preferred these cookies without the ice cream because i found they were too sweet with it but overall, delicious recipe!

    Keep up the great work Gina, love your blog. 🙂

    Yum! I just got the ice cream maker attachment for my mixer, so I think I'll try making my own frozen yogurt…I'll let you know how it goes!!!

  22. Just wanted to say I followed the original cookie recipe to a T (used the 2 TBSP butter and Whole Foods sells bulk whole wheat pastry flour for $0.99 a pound) and it came out great. Chewy, crispy edges, did not fall flat or get cakey.

    I think it's imperative to really beat the wet ingredients (I used my Kitchen Aid with the whisk attachment) and thoroughly mix in the dry ingredients but not overbeat. My rule of thumb too is to make each recipe as is the first time, to get a feel for how it will work before I make subs like Splenda, etc. Also age and storage of your baking soda could lead to flatter cookies.

    Can't wait to make these into cookie sandwiches tonight for girls night!

  23. This is the second time I have made these cookies, and both times they ended up so flat. What am I doing wrong??

      Yes, perhaps it's the baking soda. Or my original recipe uses less, I was actually trying to make them flat for the sandwich but they didn't come out flat like I wanted.

    2. Thanks! The baking soda says it doesn't expire until July, but I will get a new one and try it again with a little bit less.

      Don't get me wrong-I still thoroughly enjoyed the cookie sandwich!

    3. I was wondering what I was doing wrong, too! Thanks for asking Melissa and thanks for the tip, ladies. I shall try again! (luckily the fam thinks they're still delicious!)

    4. Ah, I must have bad baking soda too. These were so flat, that I couldn't get them off the cookie sheet in one piece. I agree they are still yummy bits of cookies. Will have to eat mine in a bowl tonight instead of as a sandwich!

  24. These look so awesome! I am going to make then later this afternoon! I just joined WW and am looking for recipes that are yummy and already have the points calculated for me? For every recipe you add, do you put the points in? Just want to make sure that I am being accurate and sticking to my new lifestyle! Thank you so much of all of these great and tasty recipes, Making buffalo chicken lettuce wraps tonight!
