These are pretty good. No, they do not taste exactly like traditional chocolate chip cookies, but they're good for sweet cravings. They're somewhat like shortbread cookies, with chocolate chunks. I plan on trying to use more almond meal and less baking mix next time, as I don't care for the taste of the mix. For the chocolate, I used a mixture of hershey's sugar free dark and milk chocolates.
- 3⁄4 cup low-carbohydrate baking mix
- 1⁄2 cup almond flour or 1⁄2 cup almond meal, see note
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup Splenda sugar substitute
- 2 -3 ounces sugar-free bittersweet chocolate
Directions See How It's Made
- In a food processor, mix together bake mix, almond meal, and splenda.
- Add butter to processor and pulse until crumbly.
- In a separate bowl, mix egg, yolk, and vanilla.
- Add the bake mix mixture to the egg mixture, a small amount at a time.
- Stir in chocolate pieces.
- Drop dough by tablespoons onto parchment lined baking sheet and flatten slightly with a spoon.
- Bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes.
- Cool, and transfer to airtight container.
- NOTE: To make almond meal/flour, Process almonds in a food processor until fine; careful not to overprocess, or you'll end up with almond butter.
