Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are delightful treat. So why not go for a lower carb, lower glycemic, gluten free version?

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put everything in the mixing bowl except the butter. Then melt the butter (I do it in a microwave safe ceramic dish) and pour over the ingredients in the bowl. Run the mixer blending thoroughly until it starts forming a nice dough ball. Put in refrigerator for a few minutes if you find the mixture too sticky to work with. Line a cookie sheet (or two) with parchment paper. I use a tablespoon or so per cookie. Bake for 13 minutes or brown to your liking. Let stand for 5 minutes and enjoy!

Ingredients:

This recipe takes me about 10-15 minutes to prep and about 10 minutes for clean up in the kitchen. Makes 25-35 cookies, depending on size

These are sweet and delicious and my family wipes them out quickly without feeling heavy or gross.

An alternate method is to reduce the almond and gluten free flour to 1/3 cup and add a very ripe banana. That changes the cookies to have a little banana flavor added (duh), a lighter and fluffier texture, while adding the nutrition from a banana which I’ve also found to NOT spike blood glucose levels.

    1. I haven’t found Dolcedi available online yet, Whole Foods is where I purchase it. Check your local store and they should be able to get it for you if they don’t have it on the shelf.
