Introducing Low Calorie Red Velvet White Chip Cookies (CRUMBL copycat) but for only 313 calories of course! These bad boys are a combination of two classic cookies: red velvet and chocolate chip. They’re thick, soft, chewy, and packed with white chocolate chips that’ll have you swooning with every bite. Trust me, these cookies will have you reaching for seconds. Crumbl’s original red velvet cookie was 600 calories, we’ve cut that number straight down the middle without compromising on size or flavor!
Like many of you I was hooked after just one CRUMBL cookie. They’re the perfect balance of vanilla and chocolate and pack a seriously buttery punch. The problem for me is my lack of self control and my waistline. So, I went home and got to baking. And after a few batches, I finally made a recipe that was pretty close to the real deal, half the calories and 95% of the flavor.
You need to try these cookies. They taste like the best red velvet cookie you’ve ever had and each one has the perfect balance of flavors. Plus, this recipe doesn’t require any chilling time and makes giant-sized cookies. What’s not to love?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- all-purpose flour
- cocoa powder
- corn starch
- baking soda
- light butter
- Granulated sugar
- light brown sugar
- white vinegar
- red food coloring
- white chocolate chips
I recommend always using a gel based food coloring but if you don’t have it on hand don’t fret, just make sure you don’t flood the batter with it.
Also don’t substitute the egg for egg whites or applesauce. The recipe is already so low fat because we aren’t using traditional butter that you’ll have almost no binding agent and the cookies may not come together.
How do I make them?
To make these delicious CRUMBL Red Velvet White Chip Cookies, cream the butter and both sugar together. Mix the dry ingredients and set aside. Add in the egg, vanilla extract, vinegar, and red gel food coloring. Mix the dry mixture into the wet mixture until the flour disappears. Fold in the white chocolate chips, scoop out eight cookie dough balls, press them down using the back of a lightly oiled cup or use your hands to shape out giant cookies, place on a lined baking sheet, and bake. Voila! The best Red Velvet White Chip Cookies for a fraction of the calories!
Can I make these ahead of time and store them?
To keep your CRUMBL Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies fresh for later you’ll need to store them in an airtight container. At room temp they will last about 4 days, in the fridge they should stay good for about a week and you can freeze them for up to a month. Just pop them back in the oven for a minute or two to warm them up before eating so you get that gooey cookie!
I don’t have a stand mixer. Now what?
If you don’t have an electric mixer or a stand mixer, no worries, I use my stand mixer daily but for most people its an unneeded extra appliance. The butter is already soft so you don’t need to soften it further, beat it well with the sugar and eggs, fold in the dry mixture and you’ll be good to go! And yes, you gotta use red food coloring if you want to make a true red velvet dessert.
