Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (355 F). Microwave the butter for 30 seconds to melt, but it shouldn’t be hot.
  2. Place the butter into a mixing bowl and beat with the erythritol. Add the vanilla and egg, mix on low for another 15 seconds exactly.
  3. Add the almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Press the dough together and remove from the bowl. Combine the chocolate chips into the dough with your hands.
  5. Roll the dough (or use a small ice cream scoop) to Make 12 balls and place on a baking tray. Bake for 10 mins.
  6. Let them cool, and serve. Keep in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
Recipe Notes

EXPERT TIPS:

I have tested different ingredients to show you how using alternatives might affect the quality of the cookie.

  • Fine Almond Flour : It still works, but a little too flat for my liking
  • Coconut Flour : It’s pretty bad, so don’t try it.
  • Coconut Oil : It also doesn’t work that well. It melts too quickly and stays in more of a ball shape.
  • Without Xanthan Gum : Too flat. If you baked it for a little less time, it could definitely work. I suggest 8 minutes.
    • (You can also substitute Xanthan Gum with Gelatine (1 tsp).)
  • Liquid Stevia : It came out hard as a rock.

Where Can I Purchase Sugar Free Chocolate Chips?

Lily’s do a great quality sugar free chocolate chip, which works great in this recipe.

However, if you don’t have access to those specific choc chips, you can always just use:

  • Chopped up 90% Lindt chocolate
  • 100% bakers chocolate.

My Cookies Aren’t Flat Like Yours?

Some people have experienced making these cookies, but for some reason, their cookies didn’t flatten in the oven.

If you are not using 100% pure erythritol, your cookies will not flatten.

I use 100% erythritol in this recipe, and it works every time.

If they still don’t melt into cookie shapes in the oven within the first 5 minutes, it either means that you’ve added too much flour, or you’ve not melted the butter as shown above.

But don’t worry! you can easily press them down with fork midway through cooking, so be sure to watch them.
