Do you prefer soft and chewy cookies, or hard and crunchy? If you prefer soft – then these are absolutely the sweet treat that you need in your life!
One of the secrets to the wonderful texture is almond butter – get a smooth variety and make sure that it is unsweetened. Oh and it'll probably need a good stir before you use it because it separates naturally.
You and your family are going to love these treats!
How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Combine an egg, unsweetened almond butter, and unsweetened almond milk together in a bowl. Set aside.
In a stand mixer, combine almond flour and a granular low carb sweetener – I used Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC! Add in the egg mixture and beat until fully mixed. It will form a very thick dough.
Stir in some low carb chocolate chips – I recommend using Lily's (buy them from Amazon or Netrition), or Know Foods (buy them from Netrition). Press the mixture into an 8×8″ baking pan that you have lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. It will be very soft when you remove it from the oven, so let it cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before transferring it carefully to a cooling rack.
Let the cookie bars cool completely then cut into 16 squares.
The result of your efforts is a soft and chewy cookie treat that you absolutely deserve! I actually served these as an informal dessert at a dinner party to a couple who had never had anything low carb – they loved them!
Store your low carb chocolate chip cookie bars in an airtight container.
