Flourless Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies

"Delicious, with healthy fat from almonds, and only 5.5 grams net carbs per cookie. If you are avoiding wheat or counting carbs, give these a try. I created them for my husband who has to reduce his carb intake in order to control his blood sugar."

Ready In:
15 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease 1 cookie sheet.
  • Stir together almond meal, sugar and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Add beaten egg, chocolate chips and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • Place dough balls one inch apart on cookie sheet . You should be able to fit all 15 on the single cookie sheet.
  • Bake until puffed and golden, about 10 minutes.
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet about 2 minutes and then transfer to paper towels or rack to cool.
  • Note: I personally avoid artificial sweeteners, so I don't know how they would taste made with splenda.

  1. Five stars, these are excellent! Just exactly as I like it, chewy and not too sweet - thanks for posting! I'll make them again for sure.<br/>Made for Healthy Choices.
  2. WOW! i was looking for a recipe to use my almond flour/meal. i have several recipes but wanted something quick and easy. i was not disappointed! i almost couldn't believe how easily these came together - within minutes i had a sheet of cookies ready for the oven. i substituted ground flax meal/water for the egg, and added a tablespoon of rice milk to get a cookie dough consistency. they weren't too sweet, they were very chewy and just right. i will definitely make these again... maybe tonight! thanks ranch-girl!
  3. I made these for the first time,,,they are awesome. I didn't have baking soda, so I used sea salt, and I used coconut sugar instead of regular sugar. Very impressed and pleased. LOVE 'EM!!!
  4. I was all set to make these cookies, looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe with less carbs. My husband has diabetes and he us very disciplined with his diet but on occasion with have 2 cookies. After reading an article of the dangers of using almond flour I decided not to try this. Evidently when almond flour is baked, it breaks down a lot of the fatty bonds which oxidizes the fats creating free radicles which in turn causes cell damage. Fortunately, my husband has great self discipline with his diet and he does very well in limiting the cookies he loves so much and I think best to let him stay with what works for him. But thanks anyway, the recipe sounded like a great answer to lower carbs and it would but I won't because of the downside to the almond flour.
  5. I absolutely loved these, they are quick and so easy and just down right delicious. They are sweet but not overly so and the almond makes them wonderfully chewy and tasty little treats. I would definitely recommend them to all.
