Low Carb Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its the Friday before Christmas!!! Yay! If you’re looking for something to bake this weekend maybe check this post out.

Im trying to keep my sugar and flour intake to a low. Well carb intake in general. But… Christmas is throwing a wrench in my plans. So I searched Pinterest for a perfect Almond Flour cookie recipe to bake cookies to have some guilt free Christmas goodness in my home.

I found this recipe and tried it on a random evening and event they turned out amazing. Of course being me I made some changes to the recipe since I could never follow a recipe to the letter. I can’t tell you how yummy these were.

Low Carb (Almond Flour) Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need:

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (the original recipe called for solid coconut oil but I used regular and it was just fine)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (the original recipe called for 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence (the original recipe called for vanilla extract)
  • 2 cups almond flour (according to the original recipe you can also use Almond meal)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • 1/2 cup mixed white chocolate and regular chips


What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet/pan with parchment paper.
  3. Add the coconut oil and the pure maple syrup to a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients until the syrup and oil are mixed together.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to whisk together until combined.
  5. In another bowl, stir together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir together until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I used both white and normal chocolate chips but that’s a personal preference. If you’re avoiding sugar (like I should be, use semi-sweet chocolate chips).
  6. Scoop mixture onto the cookie sheet, spacing cookies two inches apart. Press down gently with your fingers to flatten slightly.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until set and the edges are golden brown.
  8. Remove the cookies from oven and let them cool completely.

I took these for breakfast all week last week. Nice low carb but yummy breakfast. I hope you try it, if you do let me know.

Its the Friday before Christmas!!!
