24 Sep low carb choc chip cookies
Welcome back to Sandtondiet and this week’s very scrumptious, low carb choc chip cookie recipe. This recipe came about because of the multitude of clients that I have with a sweet tooth! It is nice to indulge in something that is delicious and sweet but it should ideally be something that hasn’t got tons of sugar and if possible it’s nice to throw in some health benefits too.
These low carb choc chip cookies are mostly healthy (with the exception of the one tablespoon of choc chips that are distributed between 15 cookies). The cookies are flourless too and so are suitable for many eating plans. The biggest bonus is that they are also LOW CARB!
These cookies were served to my guests on Friday night and they really got the thumbs up. They couldn’t believe that they were low carb and delicious to boot. So enjoy the choc chip cookies without the guilt!
I hope that you enjoy this week’s recipe. Let me know how your cooking goes, Leanne x
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup cashew nut butter*
½ cup castor xylitol
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp chocolate chips
1 jumbo egg
¼ tsp baking powder
*cashew nut butter can be quite expensive so feel free to use the nut butter of your choosing. I like the Ohmega brand because it is has no artificial additives or preservatives, it just has nuts….
- Mix all the ingredients together until they form a dough
- Take spoonful’s of the dough using a teaspoon and form each spoonful of dough into a ball so that each ball is roughly the size of a large walnut
- Place each ball on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake at 180C for 10 minutes.
