Chewy Almond butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you are committed to a low carb diet, which could be by choice or health reasons such as Type 1 Diabetes, finding really good low carb treats can seem impossible. Low carb treats don’t usually use regular flours which means that substituting your favourite treats with coconut or almond flour could turn out to be a huge disaster as these flours simply do not work the same as wheat flour. Coconut flour for instance is extremely absorbent so you have to adjust the amount of coconut flour as well as the amounts of liquids. This takes a lot of trial and error which can be costly. Almond flour is a little easier to substitute but with that being said, still not the same. My recommendation to you is work with tried and tested recipes first then venture into the unknown.

These low carb paleo treats are so delicious and easy to make. I used almond butter in these but you can use any nut butter you wish. They would also be delicious with walnut or pecan chunks added. You could make these completely dairy free/vegan by adding an egg substitute but that could change the consistency of the batter and the results may not be that great. Worth a try though!

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.
