Ingredients:  
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted

2 tbsp applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with non-stick silicone baking liners such as Silpats or lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to blend. In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, 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.

Personal Notes:
What makes them skinny? Only 2 tablespoons of butter for the whole batch and applesauce instead of oil! I usually double this recipe because they go quick in my house.
