Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
Updated: Jul 17, 2019
The perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe is essential in any kitchen. I definitely have my traditional recipe perfected, but I struggled a little longer to find the perfect recipe when I'm trying to stay on plan. Depending on your use of sweeteners and chocolate chips this one is either low-sugar or sugar- free and also gluten free, using almond flour and flax in place of traditional flour. Send me pics and let me know what you think!
What you'll need:
1 1/3 C Blanched Almond Flour
1 Tbsp Flax Seed Meal
1/3 C Sweetener of choice
1/4 C Butter - softened
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp Salt
2/3 C Dark Chocolate Chips
How to prepare:
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Mix the almond flour, flax seed and baking powder in one bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the egg, butter, vanilla, salt and sweetener together in a separate bowl.
Mix together and add the chocolate chips. If the batter is sticky put it into the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to allow it to set (this allows them to keep proper shape when baking).
Divide into 10 cookies and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!
