Notes
For Version 2- the more "cookie" like version- sweeter and a bit sturdier

Simply add ¼ cup flour and ¼ cup loosely packed brown sugar to the batter. This will change the per cookie calorie count to 75 calories. Not too shabby still

Personally, my favorite version is with a ¼ cup of brown sugar, but no flour. It's a sweeter cookie, without the calories of the flour, and I like the nice soft texture! This version is 67 calories per cookie!
