These definitely take care of any chocolate needs you might have.  At least they do for me.  The original recipe can be found here , but for a very low fat version try this one:

1 T. + 1 t. whole flax seeds
1/2 c. soymilk

3/4 c. wonderslim or baby food prunes (fat replacer)
2 c. evaporated cane juice*
2 t. vanilla

2 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grind the flax seeds on high in a blender until they become a powder.  Add soymilk and blend for another 30 seconds.  Set aside.
  • Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate large bowl cream together oil and evaporated can juice.  Add the flaxseed/soymilk mixture and mix well.  Add the vanilla.
  • Mix wet and dry together.  Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
  • Roll dough into 1 inch balls and flatten into disc that's about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, set them on a wire rack.
*I actually used half evaporated can juice and half super concentrated stevia (1/4 t. = 1 c. sugar) and it worked great, but if you don't have either of those you can use sugar.

Could these be made without flax seeds? I mean, obviously, that's healthier, but if I'm all out of them, could I just skip them, or should I replace it with egg replacer or something?

i've replaced the wonderslim with applesauce. it works.
