04 Aug Easy Sugar-Free Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
In honour of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day I’m sharing my popular recipe for sugar-free chocolate chip cookies—it’s one of my favorite healthy desserts. It’s easy to make, low carb, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and keto. Plus, this recipe is suitable for both my 28 Day Guided Gut Healing Program and 8 Week Lean & Clean program!
Looking for a sugar-free chocolate chip cookie recipe that is super easy to make? I’ve got you! These healthy treats use just one bowl, 8 ingredients and are ready to eat in minutes. They are also low carb, and packed full of protein and healthy fiber, meaning they will keep your blood sugar balanced and not spike insulin, the hormone that switches our body from burning fat to storing it.
As a bonus, this recipe is suitable for tons of diets, making them a perfect crowd pleaser, especially when you’re entertaining people with different dietary restrictions or needs.
It might seem impossible to make delicious chocolate chip cookies that are also healthy, but this quick recipe swaps out convention ingredients for more nutritional options. Pumpkin puree helps them stay chewy and soft, while almond butter adds nutty flavor along with healthy protein and fats.
Sugar-Free & Vegan: Healthy Ingredient Swaps for Chocolate Chip Cookies
In my Easy Sugar-Free Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies, I’ve also traded chicken eggs for flaxseed “eggs”—a simple mixture of flaxseed and water. This combo helps bind ingredients together like eggs do in baked goods, and it adds a boost of healthy fat and fiber to the cookies.
Another important vegan-friendly swap is the chocolate chips: I use sugar-free vegan chocolate chips, which don’t contain the dairy (or sugar) that traditional chocolate chips do. They help make this recipe entirely sugar-free.
If you’re worried about finding all the ingredients, don’t fret. Everything is available from Thrive Market, meaning you can make a one stop shop for everything you need!
