Although black and white cookies do no contain chocolate chips or other similar high calorie ingredients, they do have a layer of frosting, which makes them high in calories.

Calories

The online nutrition information resource MyFitnessPal explains that one 2 oz. black and white cookie contains 230 calories. If you base your diet on the suggested daily intake of 2,000 calories, then one cookie comprises 11.5 percent of your daily calories.

Fat

Black and white cookies are high in fat. The nutrition information at MyFitnessPal notes each 2 oz. cookie contains 13 g of fat. Of this fat, 3 g comes from saturated fat. The USDA explains that saturated fat may increase your risk of heart disease, and suggests limiting your intake to 10 percent of your daily calories.

Carbohydrates

Black and white cookies are also rich in carbohydrates. MyFitnessPal notes that a 2 oz. black and white cookie contains 25 g of carbohydrates, with 15 g of sugar and no fiber. MayoClinic.com explains that fiber is a vital nutrient that promotes regularity and helps control blood sugar levels.

Protein

Black and white cookies are low in protein. MyFitnessPal's nutrition information notes that a 2 oz. black and white cookie contains just 3 g of protein.
