These chocolate chip cookies are made with almond flour. They are keto, zero carb recipe. I have already posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe but this new recipe is perfect. I got this idea from Keto Connect, they used beef gelatin in their recipe. I just got ordinary gelatin found in the baking section of the store. The cookies turned out to be of good shape and taste. They are easy to make and they taste like regular cookies. It is a real treat for those on a keto diet.
1 and 1/2 cup of almond flour
1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter
1/2 cup of healthy sweetener (erythrytol or xylitol)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of gelatin powder
1/2 cup of unsweetened chocolate chips ( I used Lily’s )
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or use a silicon sheet if you have one.
In a large bowl add the melted butter, egg, sweetener, vanilla and combine them with an electrical whisk. Now add the almond flour, baking powder, and gelatin and mix them well with the whisk until a uniform smooth dough forms.
Now fold in the chocolate chips and mix the dough well with a spatula. Save a few chocolate chips to decorate the top of each cookie.
Using clean hands shape the cookies into balls, flatten the balls and allow the edges to be thick. Place them on the cookie sheet with space between them for the cookies to expand while baking. Take few pieces of chocolate chip and decorate the top of your cookies to look yummy.
Place in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove and cool them for 30 minutes. Then they are ready to eat.
These cookies are perfect for anytime, they taste so much better the next day. You can place them in airtight container for a week.
