Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies


With only 2 net carbs per cookie biscuit for this low carb version of chocolate chip cookies, you may like to give Stacey's recipe a try. If you do, I think it may be one you will use again and again, as many others have found out ...

INGREDIENTS

Makes 24
1 ¼ cup almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder (preferably corn free)
⅛ tsp sea salt, * optional
⅔ cup sweetener of choice e.g. Swerve sweetener or other low carb granulated sweetener equivalent
5 ½ tbsp butter, cold (it must be cold)
½ tbsp molasses *optional
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
½ cup sugar free chocolate chips or chopped low carb chocolate bar (85% type)
¼ cup chopped pecans *optional


You can see full recipe and baking instructions here

I think I may have a cookie biscuit with a cup of tea - how about you?

These look delicious Jan. I would have to buy some of the ingredients for as yet neither hubby or I have diet restrictions.

These really are interesting posts. I shall have to look for almond and coconut flour when I go shopping. I often use grounds almonds with ordinary flour to bake.
Your cookies look delicious and they would go wonderfully with my cup of tea at this present time!
Have a wonderful Wednesday :)
