For the best taste and texture, you’ll want to use a regular white granular sweetener and a brown sugar substitute.
Regular salted butter gives the best buttery flavor. If you use unsalted butter, add in about one-fourth teaspoon of salt.
The yolk provides richness so this low carb chocolate chip cookie recipe uses a full egg and an added yolk.
You’ll need to use sugar free chocolate chips in this Carbquik recipe to keep it low in carbs.
Make sure you use pure vanilla extract for the best tasting cookies.
Fresh baking soda is key to preventing flat chocolate chip cookies.
Once you have all your ingredients, you’ll need a large mixing bowl and ungreased baking sheets to prepare the recipe. If you want to prevent the cookies from sticking to the pan, you can uses either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Prepare the cookie dough
The first step is to beat butter and sugar substitutes together in the mixing bowl until well combined. Then beat in the wet ingredients, egg and vanilla extract. Carbquik and baking soda are then stirred in to make the base cookie dough.
Add chocolate chips
Once you have your dough, the next step is to stir in the low carb chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed. A large spoon or spatula works well for mixing them in.
After the chocolate chips are mixed in, either spoon dough or use a cookie scoop to divide the dough into tablespoon sized pieces onto the prepared baking sheets. If not lined, you may want to use a lightly greased cookie sheet to prevent sticking.
It’s best to bake the dough when it’s chilled so the butter doesn’t melt quickly and create flat cookies. I recommend placing each baking pan with the dough scoops in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill the dough before baking. Or, you can let them sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
While the dough scoops are chilling, go ahead and preheat the oven. The dough will need to bake for about 10 minutes to get nicely browned cookies.
- Use fresh baking soda. If your baking soda is old, it may not give the cookies an adequate rise when baking.
- Chill the scoops of dough before baking. The butter needs to be soft in order to blend into the dough ingredients. However, soft dough melts quickly in the oven and can result in flat cookies. That’s why it’s best to chill the dough scoops before baking.
- Line or grease the pan. To prevent the cookies from sticking to your baking sheet, I recommend using a liner or lightly greasing with coconut oil.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh-baked cookies, and with low carb chocolate chip cookies made with Carbquik, you can enjoy that taste without worrying about the extra carbs. These cookies are easy to make and perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.
Before getting to the recipe card, I wanted to share answers to questions people often ask about low carb sugar free chocolate chip cookies.
There are a few reasons why cookies may come out flat. The two most common reasons are that the butter melts too fast and or the baking soda is not fresh. Chilling the dough before baking and ensuring the baking soda is fresh will prevent getting flat cookies.
The top secret to making soft cookies is to not over-bake them. Be sure to remove them from the oven when they are still a little bit gooey in the center. For low carb cookies, allulose is the preferred sweetener to use for a soft texture.
Egg yolk is used as a binding agent in chocolate chip cookies. It helps to hold the cookie together and gives it a chewy texture.
