These Weight Watchers Cool Whip Cookies are the perfect dessert for the next time you are craving a soft, chewy cookie that is easy to make and low in WW points. In fact, you might have the ingredients in your kitchen already.
What are Cake Mix Cool Whip Cookies?
Cookies made with a cake mix and cool whip come together with 4 simple ingredients: 1 box cake mix, 1 tub whipped topping, 1 egg, and 1/3 cup sweetener.
To make this WW version, we used a sugar-free cake mix and sweetener instead of powered sugar.
These cake mix cookies are popular because they come together in minutes with just a few simple ingredients, and the flavor combinations are endless.
Here are some of the flavors you can make:
- Lemon cookies (use a sugar-free vanilla cake mix and add the zest of 1 lemon or 1 tsp lemon extract).
- Orange cookies (use a sugar-free vanilla cake mix and add the zest of 1 orange or 1 tsp orange extract)
- Coconut lime cookies (use a sugar-free vanilla cake mix and add the zest of 1 lime plus 1 tsp coconut extract)
- Chocolate cookies (use a chocolate cake mix and follow instructions as indicated)
- Chocolate peanut butter cookies (prepare cookies as indicated and frost with a mixture of powdered peanut butter such as PB2, sweetener, and water or almond milk)
- Spice cookies (prepare cookies as written using a sugar-free vanilla cake mix and 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice)

How funny that you shared these cookies. I’ve been making these since this past weekend. Shared with my neighbors (strawberry cake mix) and they loved them and can’t wait for me to make them some more. Of course I gave her my recipe and told her that she doesn’t have to use the sugar free stuff and she said that she actually enjoyed them and couldn’t tell that they were sugar free cookies.
I also made these last night with the sugar free cake mix last night for my husband (whom I’m on the program for supporting him, I personally don’t need to lose weight but it’s helping me to keep him eating healthy and cutting down his portions.)
I haven’t tried your recipe, but I was looking at my recipe compared to yours and mine said to use 2 eggs. I used the sugar free cake mix and sugar free cool whip (when I find it I buy several) used the powdered sugar.
Also, my husband was asking for orange. Has anyone tried this using anything other than white or yellow cake mix. I thought about spice cake or carrot cake but I’d be the only one eating them since he’s not a fan of either of those two.
I love your recipes. I’m the first to write about these. Yeah.
Thanks so much for your time.
