Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies with less sugar!

Hello, to all my “Celebrate Always” friends! In an effort to be more Christmas-y, I decided to start serving cookies every Saturday.

We served these cookies last weekend and got rave reviews despite the fact that I lowered the amount of sugar by at least HALF! The basic recipe is the classic recipe from Toll House, but more special because it’s written in my grandmother’s handwriting. I just tweaked it a little to cut calories.

Now, let’s start baking!

Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe adapted from: Toll House
Prep time: 15-30 minutes
Cook time: 12-15 minutes


  • 1 cup butter, softened for half an hour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated stevia
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar substitute
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican Vanilla (because it’s the best)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 9 oz bag of Lily’s sugar free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Cream butter and all sugars for 8 minutes, or until pale and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and eggs and mix to combine.
  • Add all the dry ingredients on top and beginning at a slow speed, mix to create a thick batter.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped nuts (if using).
  • Spoon onto a baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes at 375°. Larger cookies take longer to bake. I used a small cookie scoop to keep them uniform in size.
