Chocolate Chip Cookies (Low Carb)

I was so excited to try out these low carb Chocolate Chip Cookies and I was not dissapointed. They were delicious! If you love a soft chocolate chip cookie, this is the recipe for you! I omitted the walnuts and used a different chocolate chip. These cookies only have about 2.5 carbs per cookie! Now, that's not an exact bit of nutritional information but it's around that number. Don't they look yummy?!


Chocolate Chip Cookies (Low Carb)

by Lindsey
Keywords: bake dessert low-carb chocolate

Ingredients (24 cookies)
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/2 c splenda brown sugar
  • 1/2 c splenda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips (I used 40% cacao)
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350* and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and both sugars until smooth.
Beat in the egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk the two flours and baking soda until they are evenly combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop, place 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Using your fingers or a rubber spatula, flatten the cookies so that they are 1/4 inch thick. The cookies will not flatten out during baking on their own!
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown. The cookies will still be soft and may NOT be golden brown on top.
Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes.
Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool for an additional 30 minutes before eating.

  6. Thanks so much for this recipe! I'm having gastric bypass surgery in a couple months, which will mean I will be strictly low carb and low sugar for the rest of my life. I'm definitely pinning this recipe for later use. :)
