Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Brown or sweetener of your choice
  • 1/4 cup Swerve Granulated
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup stevia sweetened semi-sweet chocolate chips I used Lily's

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until combined.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and beat until light and creamy.
  • Next, add the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt and mix just until combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to portion the cookie dough and drop the rounded balls onto the prepared baking sheet at least 2-inches apart.
    Alternate Method: scoop out 2 Tablespoons of dough and roll into balls.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until the edges start to brown but the centers are still doughy. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Move cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Cookies will be puffy when they first come out of the oven but will deflate as they cool.
  • For crispier cookies bake for 11 to 12 minutes.
  • Cooking times will vary by oven so keep an eye on them.
  • Because the cookies are so soft when they come out of the oven, they will break apart if you try to move them too soon. I let mine rest for 10 minutes, until the next batch came out of the oven and they were perfect.
  • This recipe makes 22 cookies. Serving size one cookie to make the math easy.
  • So the math is not so easy. The calculator came up with 81 carbs in the sugar-free chocolate chips - this is incorrect. I am guessing they are about 2 carbs per cookie based on Swerve being 0 net carb per serving and almond flour being just under 1 net carb.
