I agree. Taking the butter out would make it chewier as would substituting splenda for sugar.

I have not tried making healthy cookies.

I like the good fats like butter! It's the flour and sugar that are my enemies. I suspect that the lack of such a fat is why your cookies are chewy. Let us know if you make adjustments and they help. I doubt cream of tartar would help unless you were beating the egg whites separately. You'd probably have better luck with those ingredients with muffins. I used to sub some applesauce for part of the oil and eggs. Always used whole eggs, though. Good luck!

trying to make some cookies but healthy. So, i used egg whites , applesauce instead of butter,
splenda instead of sugar

and they are sort CHEWIE. Not soft like they should be.

Does anyone know if cream of tarter would help make a cookie more Natural ?

If not what do you bake cookies with ?
