Seriously...this is my new favorite treat! It's definitely different than a traditional sugary chocolate chip cookie, but it is SO yummy!! AND it's even good for you!! Yeah, I'm a little amazed myself.
I came across this recipe for a coconut chocolate chip cookie that is both sugar free and flour free. I don't mind a little bit of wheat flour and I didn't have all the ingredients, soooo I made some adjustments to the recipe so I could make it with the ingredients I had at home! SO, here is our
Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:
1- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet.
2- In your kitchen aid, mix the following until it is well-blended. Stop the mixer and scrape the edges 2-3 times to make sure it is all mixed in.
* 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
* 2 packets stevia (see notes below)
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup plain yogurt (see notes below)
* 3 tablespoons butter (I use Smart Balance)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
* 2/3 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 Tablespoon coconut flour
* 2/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips (see notes below)
3- Once it is well-mixed, use a tablespoon to drop cookies onto a greased cookie sheet and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to brown.
1-- Different brands of stevia use different fillers and have different flavors and strengths. I used Sweet Leaf (powdered) packets. I really dislike getting too much stevia, so whenever I try a new recipe, I save the eggs for last and use less stevia than I think I'll need. It's easy to "test" the batter and add more stevia if I think I'll need it. I like to err on the too-little side of stevia. :) When I'm happy with the amount of sweetness, I add the eggs and finish up.
2-- I use Greek Gods plain non-fat greek yogurt. LOVE the stuff!
3-- I used Lilly's dark chocolate chips...they're sweetened with stevia instead of sugar. :)
4-- Optionally, putting the dough in the fridge for about 10 minutes makes it easier to work with.
As I type this up, my husband and I are trying to decide if it is ethical for us to eat the entire batch, or if we should save some for the kids tomorrow...
