The Ultimate Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

What’s your favourite cookie?

Mine is the humble chocolate chip. Though it HAS to be soft baked and chewy. Hand me a crunchy crisp cookie and I’ll probably throw it back at your face like the classy lady that I am. I’ve even asked to casually poke a cookie in a shop to see if it was soft baked enough – don’t worry though, I did it with a serviette so no grubby fingers touched the cookies.

Anyways, back to THESE cookies. They are:

low carb chocolate chip cookies (1g only!)
gluten free
grain free
naturally sweetened

They’re the kind that taste absolutely delicious and addictive but that won’t dump tons of sugar into ma body while adding some great fats because #FatsAreFriends! If you’re not a fan of stevia or erythritol, you can experiment with monk fruit instead. You could go down the brown sugar route if you reeeeally wanted, but it will no longer be a low carb cookie and will obvi add sugars, so I’d stick with the natural sweeteners if possible.
