Chocolate chip cookies are delicious but they can be high in calories. Swap out some of the excess fat by using mashed bananas instead of butter. Julia Collin Davison from America's Test Kitchen recommends swapping one banana for every one stick of butter to cut down on half the calories and a third of the fat.
