Chocolate Chip Cookies (Sugar Free, Low Carb)

Sugar Free, Low Carb, THM Friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies. These little gems are a satisfying treat for your Trim and Healthy Lifestyle!u

I love that I was able to make some sugar-free, low carb Chocolate Chip Cookies for my Husband.Disclosure Statement

 

Rick had surgery on Friday so things have been a bit crazy around here and I have a back log of blog posts to write, but these came out so great I just couldn’t wait to share the recipe.

 

These little gems passed with flying colors! With comments like:

“If you put these Chocolate Chip Cookies out at a party nobody would know they are “diet” cookies”

“These cookies are the closest you’ve come to a “real” cookie!

 

That’s huge praise from my cookie monster hubby… even my son who doesn’t eat THM normally liked these Chocolate Chip Cookies.

One thing about following the Trim Healthy Mama plan is that you have to use sugar alternatives not only in the cookies but also in the chocolate chips.

 

Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Baking Chips (THM S)You can use Lily’s brand chocolate chips or you can make your own Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Baking Chips like I do. I will have to try these with my sugar-free Peanut Butter baking chips and of course these Cinnamon Baking Chips

Cinnamon Baking Chips (Sugar Free, Dairy Free, THM S)Making different flavors of baking chips has been a fun adventure for me.

 

 

 

With the number of cookies that I make for my husband and myself to snack on they add a nice flavor change

Chocolate Chip Cookies (THM S, Sugar Free, Low Carb)

. I have plans to make some peppermint and ginger spice chips also so stay tuned and visit the blog often to see all the adventures!

THM Friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies (Low Carb, Sugar Free) I normally eat about 3 of these cookies for a snack along with a baby frap or some beauty milk from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.

Having ready to go snacks and treats helps me stay on plan in those busy moments or situations like last week when I was sitting in a hospital with limited access to on plan foods. Although I will say that the VA hospital did have boiled eggs, cheese cups and salads which allowed me to stay on plan in the waiting room and while I was sitting with Rick.

I did pack some other on plan snacks like an apple with peanut butter jigglegurt dip as well as some deli roll ups and string cheese.

I’ll stop rambling and give you the Sugar Free Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe…

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I will be praying for a speedy recovery for your husband. Quick question, you mentioned a peanut butter jigglegurt, can you advise how you made that? I have the book and made or I should say tried to make a lemon version and it was terrible. Peanut butter sounds like it might be better. Thank you again and God bless!

      I added2 tsp of peanut flour to 6 oz of jigglegurt and 1 tsp of Super Sweet Blend …but you could add natural peanut butter to it… but only 1 tsp for an E … You may have better luck if you grind the sweetener so that it isn’t crunchy

    Hi! These sound amazing. I was wondering if you had an idea of what could be substituted for the rivotta or cream cheese, for those of us who are dairy free as well as sugar free. I can use clarified butter as an alt. to regular butter, but I didn’t know if you knew a trick to switch out the other dairy? Thanks so much!

      I’m so sorry, I don’t know of anything that would work as a substitute in this

    Hi
    I’m new to your site. At least some of your recipes say “serves x”, this one saying “serves 3”. In this one you say you keep portion sizes to 3, so does that mean the recipe makes 9 (3 times 3)? The picture shows 12 on the tray. I just want to know how big to make the cookies. Thanks for this!

      Hi Marion — Serving sizes are approximate — if I get 12 cookies then 1 serving can be up to 4 cookies — if I make it into 9 cookies then i becomes 3
