Preheat oven to 350°.
Measuring by Weight
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
Combine sugars and butter in a large bowl with wooden spoon.
Add vanilla and egg whites and stir until incorporated.
Add flour mixture by 1/4 cups, incorporating each thoroughly.
Add chips.
I portion these out with a cookie scoop, and then I put them in a baking sheet in the freezer to cool.  When they’re hard, I pop them into a bag, and make them as needed. 

Not a great snacking choice, but a very good dessert choice.  When you’re ready -Drop dough by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350° for 10 minutes (for fresh) or 15 (for frozen) or until lightly browned.
Cool on pans for 2 minutes.
Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.
