Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.

Low Carb Cookie Recipe

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. Almond flour cookies can turn out to taste just like a traditional cookie if you use blanched almond flour.

To make these almond flour 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!

  1. I'm trying to work with this recipe. At what point do you add the butter?

  2. I did research on the Lakanto sweetner, the 25.99 bag is only 3 1/2 cups of sugar, that's really pricey. Before I spend that kind of money on it, (I currently use Eyrithtol and Xylitol, is there that much of a difference?

    • Hi Laurie,

      In my opinion the Lakanto is so much sweeter so I use a lot less. The thing I like the most is the lack of bitter and cooling. I have never been a fan of Xylitol. I don't mind Erythritol, but by itself it has too much of a cooling for me. It burns my throat. So I usually end up adding stevia to it, which gets more expensive. With the monkfruit I don't have to.

      Hope that helps!

  3. I have to make these all the time for my husband. We love them.
