Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies (Keto Friendly)

My keto quest has taken me to the land of delicieux chocolate chip cookies. It’s my second invention, and with 3.8 net carbs per cookie, I’m really excited to share it! This shall be short and sweet.

MeasuringCups

These are your tools. You’ve got your 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup, 1/2 teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon. Get your bowl and mixer. Grease your pan. Turn the oven to 350 degrees. Let’s boogie.

Mix these in a large bowl first: 1/2 cup of oats, 1/4 cup of soy flour, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.

After that is all mixed together, add these yummy bits: 2 Tbsp. coconut milk, 1 large egg, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips and (not pictured) 1/2 cup natural peanut butter and 2 Tbsp. butter.

Here we go from this to….

Balls

Once it is in dough form, roll into 1 inch balls. It should make 23-25 balls. Now, squash ’em. We want flat cookies. Pop them in the warm oven for 9 minutes. Let them cool for 5.

And you get these beauties! Seth approved, and he doesn’t really care for sweets.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup soy flour

1/2 chopped pecans

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. coconut milk

1 large egg

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

Each cookie has around 88 calories, 6.5 grams of fat, 3 grams of protein and 3.8 grams of net carbs.

Suggestions: 1/4 cup dried cranberries or other dried fruit. You could also use almond flour instead of soy, but I haven’t been able to find any!

Let me know how you like them!

    • Actually, Bunny, they are still keto friendly. What makes a food keto friendly is if the total amount of net carbs is below 20 grams, as you are only supposed to consume 20 grams of net carbs and under per day on keto. The total carb count for each of these cookies, if you are able to make 26 of them, is 4.2 grams of carbs per cookie, with .9 of them being fibrous carbs, which you don’t count on a ketogenic diet. So you can still eat things with carbs, as long as that carb count is below 20 grams of net carbs per day. These are far below that, which means you can enjoy a couple per day!
