Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

The nice thing about eating low carb is that there are so many delicious substitutions for higher carb items. Baking delicious treats is no exception but it is not always as cut and dry when it comes to substituting low carb flours and sugar substitute. Unlike cooking dinner baking does have some science behind it and combination of ingredients could make or break the final out come. When you try low carb baking for the first time it is always best to use an existing recipe to get a feel for the new ingredients. For example, if you have a favourite cake recipe that you usually make with regular flour and decide to do a straight substitution of coconut flour with all-purpose flour you will have a mess on your hands. Coconut flour is much more absorbent  and cannot be substituted on a 1:1 ratio. (for all-purpose flour, or most other flours) You can however begin by substituting 1/4 cup coconut flour for every one cup all-purpose flour. In addition, every 1/4 cup coconut flour typically requires one egg for both moisture and structure. Now, almond flour is a little less forgiving. You can actually substitute almond flour 1:1 with all-purpose flour BUT, almond flour typically requires more egg or binding agent, so the recipe might need to be altered.

The nice thing about this recipe is all the guess work have been removed so all you have to do is bake and enjoy. You will only get 12 delicious cookies but it is such an easy recipe you can whip up a double batch or another fresh batch in a day or two!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
