These small changes trim the recipe down to 104 calories per cookie and cuts out nearly half of the fat, but I bet you won't notice the difference. YOU DECIDE ** Chocolate chip cookies were reportedly first invented in the 1930s and have since become the most popular cookie recipe in America. The most common recipe continues to be the one found on the back of the bag of chocolate chips. ONE COOKIE from a batch making three dozen of those cookies is about 143 calories and contains 7 grams of fat. This is reasonable, if you can limit yourself to just ONE COOKIE -- but if you want to make a cookie sandwich, or if you prefer the jumbo-size versions, you may easily be taking in more calories than you realize.
