Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies – Kim’s Club

Well, it was inevitable that I would start to crave chocolate chip cookies at some point and that moment came 2 weeks ago!  My 10 year old niece came to stay and I wanted to treat her also – but in a healthy way – so I made 3 batches of these cookies with different almond flours and we devoured them all!  I hope you give them a go yourself and enjoy them as much as we did!Low-Carb Chocolate chip cookies

Ingredients
  • Vanilla Extract, 1tsp 4g
  • Butter - Unsalted and softened, ½ cup 100g
  • Sukrin - Gold, ½ cup 65 gr.
  • Truvia - Natural Sweetener, 1tbsp 5g
  • 1 egg
  • Salt, ¼tsp
  • Almond Flour, or ground almonds,1 cup 100g
  • Whey, 20 g
  • Baking Powder, 1 tsp
  • Cavalier - Dark Chocolate Sweetened W Stevia, 1 bar - or Chocoperfection or chocolate of your choice, chopped.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350f, 190C, Gas mark 4 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Combine the butter and sweeteners and mix well (I use a hand mixer/electric whisk). Add vanilla and egg and mix well. Add remaining ingredients - leaving the chocolate bits till last. Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake about 9 minutes or until golden brown at the edges. Cool completely.
Notes
I tried these with a variety of almond flours & ground almonds and it works with all of them. With ground almonds they will spread more, and with reduced fat almond flour they need to be pressed down with a fork. But all of them were delicious! These stats are for bog standard almond flour and sugar free chocolate.
