This recipe came about because I fancied making my popular Easy Pecan Cookies recipe again – but discovered I had no pecans! While I was thinking about if there were any other nuts I could use, I came across some hazelnut meal. I figured I would give it a try – but if I was going to have hazelnut, it also needed chocolate. It's a winning combination, right? Check out my low carb chocolate hazelnut pie , chocolate hazelnut shake, chocolate hazelnut ice cream and my comparison of low carb Nutella-like spreads! OK, I'm kind of obsessed!
So these cookies are the result of my experiment, and they only require four ingredients!!!! They're a little rustic and rough around the edges, but they taste good and they are seriously easy to make. Let me know what you think!

How to Make Low Carb Hazelnut and Chocolate Chip Cookies
Crack an egg into a stand mixer bowl, add some sweetener, and whisk it until the mixture is foamy. I love golden Lakanto for this recipe but the classic white would work fine too.
Add some hazelnut meal, and stir well to mix. Next, add in some low carb chocolate chips (Lily's chocolate chips have been my go-to brand for years!).
Line a small baking sheet with a silicone mat (I love this quarter size one), and form the mixture into small balls. Place them onto the baking sheet and flatten them down. This recipe makes 10 cookies – which I know is not a normal amount but it's just the best ratio of dry ingredients to the egg!
Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges have darkened. Leave to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
When fully cool, store in an airtight container.
I don't mind admitting that these aren't the prettiest cookies – but they are SO simple to make and the flavors are really well balanced that I know you're going to love them too!
