Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
One thing I totally missed when I went low carb was chocolate chip cookies. My husband is a cookie fanatic and would eat them in front of me all the time. I just had to create a recipe that would cure my craving…….. and taste good.
Right off, I noticed that coconut flour is not the way to go when baking. I’m sorry, some of you may love it. I don’t. It takes longer to bake, soaks up all kinds of liquid and just doesn’t seem to crisp up. Almond flour is my go to and I use it for everything.
To make these cookies, the process is no different than any other cookie recipe. I personally don’t use two bowls when I bake. The way I figure it is simple- if I was using a stand mixer it would all go in one, right? Enjoy!
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 1 dozen. Serving size – 1 cookie.
- 1/4 cup Lakanto Gold Sweetener (The BEST no after taste sweetener ever!!)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips ( Recipe analysis does not include the chocolate chips, the brand I used was not listed as an option)
To make keto friendly simply skip the sugar free chocolate chips, they have artificial sweetener. Use 80% cacao chocolate chunks instead.
Preheat the oven to 325º.
In a large bowl with electric mixer, beat egg, butter, sugar substitute and vanilla until creamy.
Mix in dry ingredients.
Spoon onto baking mat or cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and set.
Move to cooling rack to cool.
