Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, really!  The world is just a better place eating chocolate chip cookies, especially because they are grain and sugar free!!! Yay!!

The Homemade Chocolate Chunks were a success and here is my first recipe using them.  These cookies are more than I was hoping for.  They are soft, with a little crunch around the edge.  They are not too cakey with a little bit of crumble (but not too much).


Since the chocolate chunks are made with coconut oil, the chips will begin to melt, even as you blend them in the dough.  If you keep them in the freezer, they will melt less.  Don’t worry.Just work fast!!!  Even when you take them out of oven, some of the chocolate chunks from the bottom of the cookie will melt out, but there is still plenty of chocolate in the cookie! 


Here is another recipe where a tablespoon scoop is just so handy.  Also when flattening out the cookie, I put my hand inside of a sandwich bag and press them flat.  I use sandwich bags for so many things!

    I love these! This last time I made them, I was out of almond flour so I used hazelnut flour instead. Yummy! They taste kind of like Nutella cookies! (I did have to put in some coconut milk since the hazelnut flour soaked up more moisture though.)

    I made these for the first time a few weeks ago, making some slight substitutions for the sweetener (I used a combo of erythritol, xylitol, and one teaspoon of molasses for that brown sugar flavor). I really enjoyed the cookies, but they were very fragile and cake-like. But I enjoyed the raw cookie dough even more! So yesterday I had the brilliant idea to make the recipe again, omitting the eggs and baking soda, and just making cookie dough balls dipped in chocolate. I used your recipe for sugar-free chocolate chunks for the chocolate coating, and they turned out perfectly! I like the dough balls both with and without the chocolate coating. The texture was so close to a rum ball that I started googling for low-carb rum balls. Guess what my next experiment is going to be? :)

    Just baked a batch of these and they turned out perfectly ! All I have is Stevia In the Raw, so after tasting for sweetness, I mixed just a little honey in the batter. That did not make them too sweet at all :) The cookies held together beautifully during baking and came out moist and just a little crisp around the edges…nice golden color too !
