  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup bran cereal, ground in coffee grinder or processor (28 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar (25 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (25 grams)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey (30 grams)
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 teaspoon teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (65 grams)
  • 1/4 cup 1 1/2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter, water, ground cereal, both sugars, vanilla, honey, egg white and salt and stir until smooth. Add the flour and stir to form a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide dough into 12 even pieces on a foil lined plate and chill for about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can just chill the dough (especially if it's very soft) and divide after chilling.
  • When dough is slightly firmer, gently smooth the mounds into balls.
  • Arrange balls 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet and press tops down slightly. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 6 to 7 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • I think these taste better after they are completely cooled and the chocolate chips have re-set.


Note: If you use salted butter, omit 1/8 teaspoon of salt. You can also use melted margarine or spread -- the kind with 70 calories per tablespoon. If you use margarine or spread, reduce the salt by a pinch, use 3 tablespoons of spread instead of 2 and use only 1 tablespoon of water.
