Food Friday: Chocolate Crackles

This is one of my favorite, easy cookies and they aren't too bad health wise either. One cookie is approximately 60 calories and 2 grams of fat. When I'm in the mood for chocolate, this cures the craving.

Chocolate Crackles

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine oil, sugar, and vanilla in large bowl. Beat a medium speed until blended. Add egg and egg whites and beat until well blended. With a spoon, stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.

Place powdered sugar in a shallow dish or large Ziploc bag. Shape dough into 1" balls and roll or shake in powdered sugar until coated. Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched lightly. Do not overbake. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
