To keep track of your weight loss diet, this Best Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe contains an estimated 116 calories per serving. It’s a great addition for a vegan diet and a keto diet, though we wouldn’t recommend it for someone on a diabetic/diabetes diet or a weight-loss plan because it just doesn’t fit in with the low calorie and low fat requirements.

Nevertheless, these cookies are delicious, so if you can eat them in line with your diet plan, you definitely should!


These are all you’ll need for this Best Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
One important thing to note is that this the quantities of ingredients stated in this recipe is only good for about 12 servings, depending on the size of cookies you plan to make, as well as the appetites of the people you plan to serve. So, if you plan on feeding more than 12, you may want to tweak a few things including the recipe. It’s easy to adjust a recipe to fit your servings requirements, however it is not just a matter of adding another cup of flour or butter into the mix (in the case of this Best Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe). As a matter of fact, the quantities of every single one of the listed ingredients has to be increased proportionately.

Again, this is easy to do. But we know that things can get very tricky very fast in the kitchen, particularly when you’re working with a new recipe, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments section of this page. We’ll be sure to get back to you. Eventually.


You don’t need much to recreate this recipe equipment-wise, however, you’ll need the following:

One large bowl
(This is where you’ll mix all your ingredients)

A mixer (preferably one that is automated)
An oven (preferably one that is temperature regulated)
A long-handled spoon
A refrigerator
A backing pan (but preferably more than one, to save time)
For the sake of being thorough, we’ll just go ahead and mentionall the other spoons and bowls that are going to find their way into the dishwasher once all this is over. We’re not exactly sure how they’ll get there but you should probably prepare your mind.


Before we get into any of our recipe directions, there is a simple recommendation we like to give. Well, the state of your kitchen as you’re reading this will determine exactly how simple it’s going to be but that recommendation is this: clear out all clutter from your cooking surfaces. We’re talking about your counter top, and maybe even your sink.


First of all, clean cooking/baking surfaces are great for hygiene. Another thing is that you’ll have lots of space to measure out the needed quantities of your ingredients into small bowls (some of those dishwasher-bound bowls we mentioned) and you can arranged them on your counter-top like they do on TV. This is a great aesthetical idea, particularly if you’re going to be making a YouTube video on how to recreate this recipe (or something). But there’s another reason, which is; a clean cooking/baking area helps to un-clutter the mind.

So, go ahead and clear out that clutter. When you’re done, lay out your ingredients and measure them into those small bowls. Individually. Do NOT mix any of those ingredients together until the recipe tells you to. This is because there is always a technique, which is:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
(This is why we recommend an oven with a proper thermostat i.e. a temperature-regulated oven.)

Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth …
