Double Chocolate Cookies

Double Chocolate Cookies

Low-carb cookie recipes can often be problematic because cookies rely heavily on sugar for their signature texture. I have always had problems trying to recreate the perfect low-carb cookie but this double chocolate chip recipe is about as close as it gets; a crispy edge and a soft center, studded with gooey chocolate chips. The trick to the chewy texture of the center of these cookies is powdered gelatin, while powdered milk makes for crispy edges.

5 tablespoons Sola sweetener

2 ½ teaspoons (1 envelope) gelatin powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300F/150c. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sieve the almond flour, cocoa powder, milk powder, Sola sweetener, gelatin powder, salt, and baking powder into a bowl and transfer to a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the egg white-water mixture, and vanilla extract, and pulse until a smooth mixture is formed.
  4. Remove the dough from the food processor, stir in the chocolate chips, and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the parchment (for each cookie), so you have 8 cookies on each sheet pan. Press each cookie down to flatten.
  6. Bake the cookies for 22 minutes, remove from the oven, and place on a wire rack to cool.
  7. As a serving suggestion, sprinkle with chopped nuts and even a drizzle of melted chocolate if you like!
