This recipe is my new favourite cookie recipe. I did not develop it, I give credit to Amy Sung from ASung-Keto She worked tirelessly to make the perfect keto cookie and accomplished just that in my opinion. Her original post was subsequently modified and I changed a few things for my own taste and texture preference. I am posting my final version of her recipe here so I do not have to be hunting through my piles of notes and papers every time I want to bakes these wonderful cookies.
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup Almond Flour (120 grams)
2 Tablespoons Coconut flour (16 grams)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum
1 Tablespoon Konjac Glucomanan Powder (I order this from amazon)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 Cup butter
1/2 Cup Golden Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetener
1/8 Cup Truvia (in the small green pot)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg Yolk
1/2 cup pecans coarsly chopped
1/2 cup Lily’s chocolate chips (Krisda brand will work also)
2-3 squares dark chocolate bar chopped into chucks. (20-25 grams )
Combine the first 6 ingredients, making sure to remove all lumps, and set aside.
Cream together the butter, 2 sweeteners, vanilla, egg and egg yolk until smooth.
Beat dry ingredients into creamed mixture until well blended.
Fold in nuts and chocolate.
Cover dough and refrigerate for at least one hour. This is essential or the cookies will spread too much so do not skip this step.
Meanwhile, line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and preheat convection oven to 350 F with oven racks set to the two lowest positions.
Once cookie dough is cold, form balls using a large cookie scoop (mine is size 24) and place on lined cookie sheets.
Insert cookie sheets onto the two lower racks and bake for 6 minutes. Move lower sheet to upper rack and upper sheet to lower rack and continue baking for another 6 minutes.
Remove cookie sheets to cooling rack and allow cookies to cool on the sheets for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from sheets and continue cooling directly on the racks.
I made 18 cookies for a net carb count of approximately 2 net carbs each, after deducting fibre and sugar alcohols.
