Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

This Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies diabetic-friendly chocolate chip cookie recipe is so easy to make plus the taste for cookie lovers will make you very happy with the results in flavor.

The cookie has all the same characteristics and you won't miss the sugar-ladened old-fashioned cookies.

These cookies are a great alternative for a sugar-free diet that absolutely doesn't want to live without this classic favorite style of Chocolate Chip Cookie, we got you covered here.

I happen to have three diabetics in my household over the years, and this is the favorite of all the cookies I have made I will tell you the first time was a disaster not knowing the right measurements.

After a few times of different sugar-free ingredients, I finally got them right.

The cookies have all different ingredients than the Classic Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes using sugar-free and some Keto products instead of regular.

My findings on the differences are sugar-free will become dry if overbaked and crumbly, and do not over-mix, it takes a bit of time to get them right.

Every stove is different when baking so I always try one on a pie plate before doing the whole batch to ensure it seems right.

The cookies are really delicious just like our Keto Peanut Butter Cookie with 3 Ingredients recipe (also sugar-free), and the same goes for them don't overmix and don't overbake, those are my two tips!

I also just drop them on a sheet and do not try and mold them so they are a little thicker, for a crispier cookie press them down a bit.

Choosing Ingredients for Low-Carb Cookies

  1. Use only a powdered sweetener in this recipe the cookies will get firmer.
  2. You can use any granulated sweetener like xylitol, granulated stevia, or erythritol that is a 1:1 replacement for sugar then, put it into a food processor so it will become a powdered consistency.
  3. I don’t recommend using liquid stevia it may become too dry or make them too fragile.

Life Changes with Diabetes

As skeptical as I was at first, after one bite, I was very surprised at how yummy these sugar-free cookies are, they taste great and will satisfy your cookie craving.

Everything in moderation is my motto, we have to adapt to many changes and there are ups and downs in life but this is a good cookie alternative in taste when things aren't exactly how we envisioned what are future holds.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do, a healthy recipe alternative that you won't have to give up when you love Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Just remember just because it's low in sugar, natural sugar is in fruit so it's never 100% sugar-free and everything needs to be in moderation if you're diabetic, check with your doctor for more information or with a nutritionist.

  1. I love sugar free sweets:-)) and stevia is one of the few sweeteners that I still use in my baking. These cookies are definitely a winner.
