Chocolate Chip Cookies

by | Oct 29, 2015

Looking for a good low carb chocolate chip cookie recipe? Baked goods can be hard to adapt to keto style, but I’m really happy with how well these turned out. They are remarkably like real chocolate chip cookies. Maybe a little too good. You may be compelled to eat more than you should.

I used whey protein powder from Winco’s bulk section and Hershey’s sugar free chocolate chips for the nutritional info.

Remember, these are not “low cal”, they are “low carb”. Only 4 net grams of carbs per cookie instead of 15 with the traditional toll house recipe.

I know many people say not to count the carbs, or only count half the carbs, from the sugar free chocolate chips because of the sugar alcohol properties. That sounds like some sort of magic mumbo jumbo and I’m not sure if I believe it. It also varies depending on which sugar alcohol is used to sweeten them.

For this recipe, the nutritional info includes the carbs from them. If you use sugar free chocolate with Erythritol you can, supposedly, not count any of the carbs from it.
