These cookie bites are pretty low in sugar, but if you want to reduce the sugar content even more, you can replace the brown sugar with a non-calorie sweetener such as stevia (I would use 1 Tbsp of Pyure stevia).

Be sure to check the nutrition facts on your chocolate chips if you’re concerned about sugar.  You may have noticed that the nutrition fact labels on packaged foods have changed recently.  Among other changes, you can now easily see how much added sugar is included in your food.  On the previous labels, both naturally occurring sugars (such as those that naturally occur in fruit and dairy) and added sugars (which you want to limit) were lumped together.  Now, you can distinguish between naturally occurring sugar and added sugar, which can help you to make healthier choices.  Check out this article to learn more about the new nutrition fact panels.

If you’re looking for tasty sugar-free chocolate chips, I love Bake Believe’s sugar-free baking chips.
