This recipe is definitely one worth printing, making and then making it over and over again.
That’s because these chocolate chip cookies are totally grain-free, sugar-free (except for the chocolate chips) and gluten-free.
You might be wondering how this soft, gooey and sweet cookie is all of those things?
Before I share this delicious recipe with you, I want to talk a little about my flour and sweetener choices.
Honeyville Almond Flour:
I have tried many almond flours and Honeyville’s Blanched Almond Flour* takes the gluten-free cake. The flour has such a nice texture and bakes up really nice each and every time. Some almond flours taste gritty and leave a bad aftertaste, but Honeyville offers up a smooth, soft texture with no bad aftertaste. I use it almost exclusively when my recipe calls for almond flour. (Don’t use Bob’s Red Mill’s almond flour – it’s just not the same).
The great thing about almond flour is that it is low in sugar and carbohydrates but high in fat and protein. It has a low glycemic index ranking so it’s great for diabetics or others who need or want to watch their sugar intake.
ZenSweet’s Monk Fruit Sweetener:
ZenSweet sent me a bag of its Monk Fruit Sweetener* to try. I didn’t know what to make, so I decided to make this tried and true recipe but instead of using sugar, I used the Monk Fruit Sweetener, which measures cup-for-cup to sugar. I found the cookies to be sweet and taste exactly as I had put sugar in there. There was no weird aftertaste (like with Splenda or other imitation sugars) and there wasn’t a gritty sugar taste either. All I tasted was my moist, sweet, soft chocolate chip cookie.
ZenSweet’s Monk Fruit Sweetener contains three natural ingredients: erythritol, soluble prebiotic fiber and monk fruit. According to the ZenSweet website, “Erythritol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in some foods, including pears, grapes, and watermelon. Inulin is a soluble, prebiotic fiber. Monk fruit is a small round green gourd grown in China and northern Thailand, and is 300 times sweeter than sugar.”
ZenSweet is a zero calorie sweetener and has zero glycemic impact. It’s also non-GMO. You can purchase ZenSweet on Amazon* too or if Amazon is sold out, you can try this other monk fruit sweetener* as well.
Together, this winning combination offers up a low glycemic, low sugar, low carb and totally gluten-free sweet treat!
