Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350F / 170C, then beat together the soft butter and warm cream cheese until all lumps are gone, then add the sweeteners, salt, vanilla and coffee flavoring. Mix in the eggs one at a time until well combined.

2. In a separate bowl, sift together the almond flour, cacao powder, guar gum and baking soda. Whisk to evenly disperse, then gradually incorporate these dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a smooth dough forms. Last, fold in the chocolate chunks or cacao nibs.

3. For chunky, more "homestyle" cookies, roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and bake for 15 minutes. For flatter, more evenly-circular cookies, use a 1-tablespoon cookie dough scoop (linked above) to form a round dough ball, then flatten with the palm of your hand before baking.

BAKING TIME GUIDE:

10 minutes = soft cookies (MUST let cool fully before removing)

13 minutes = chewy cookies with soft centers

15-17 minutes = crispy cookies with chewy centers

(10 minutes at 380F = soft centers with crispy edges --my favorite style)

 

***NOTE ON SWEETENER CHOICE:

Erythritol and erythritol-based sweeteners do not form the nice crispy crunchy chewy textures that we love in cookies, so I recommend using equal parts erythritol and more expensive sweeteners like allulose and tagatose which are fully keto-friendly but DO provide those yummy textures. Xylitol is higher in carbs, but if you tolerate it well, feel free to use it instead of allulose/tagatose because it is much cheaper. See my INGREDIENTS Page for more detailed information on keto ingredients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
