Healthy Recipes-Chocolate Chip Biscuits (Stevia recipe)

I love chocolate chip cookies, but so hesitate to eat any because of the sugar and butter content-way too sweet and buttery for me! If you take a look at any chocolate chip cookie recipes, you can see cups of sugar and butter added. If I really really want, I would just eat one piece for a whole day...but...that's not fair!!! is it?

Have you read the news about Paula Deen's recent announcement? Are you shocked that she has diabetes? I think someone last year told me that Paula actually has diabetes, but not publicly announced. The crew from Food network responded-would be shocked to know Paula does not have diabetes! It's actually sad that she is ill and has to taste his foods loaded with sugar, butter, fat in front of the camera...very bad for her health!!
