This recipe was not in the Trim Healthy Mama bookbut a link was shared on the Facebook group page.  I tweaked this recipe a bit to use Truvia and they really turned out great!  Enjoy!

Trim Healthy Mama {Chocolate Chip Cookies}

Chocolate Chip Cookies – “S”

3 cups almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup Truvia PLUS several shakes of NuNaturals
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (or Skinny Chocolate chunks)

In a mixing bowl, whisk almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, and Truvia/NuNaturals.

In another bowl, mix the coconut oil or butter, eggs, and vanilla.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and beat well.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoons onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet (or just grease the baking sheet), and bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Note:  I stored these in the freezer and then just took out one or two at a time when I was wanting something sweet!

    These sound great! I do not have coconut flour though. What could I use instead? Thanks!

      Hi Lisa. Boy, I’m not sure what to recommend without trying it myself. When you deal with gluten-free flours, they all act so differently. Coconut flour is one that absorbs a lot of moisture so it will act differently in a recipe. I am wondering if you could use oat flour maybe? Run some rolled oats in your blender until it is a fine powder. I’m not sure if that will work though. Sorry I’m not much help! It might be easier to just wait until you have some coconut flour :)!

    Oat flour will put you in E territory, I think? These look great, can’t wait to try them!

    For chocolate chips, is there an acceptable THM option or do you just cheat with the 70% one?. I have not made skinny chocolate yet, but am wondering how it would hold up in the oven.

      I am thinking the skinny chocolate would melt too much in the oven. I just cheat and use the dark chocolate chips :).

        Thanks–no cheating for me yet…only 4 days into the diet. Cookies are my comfort food, so I’m researching options!

          One thing you could do is to leave the eggs out of the recipe, add in some extra almond milk or something for more liquid, and then use chopped up skinny chocolate to make raw cookie dough balls! Just put balls on wax paper and flash freeze, then store in the freezer for a fun snack! I’ve done that too with other types of cookies :). Just a thought!

            I wrote this down a little further, but now realize it might be more helpful here. Hersey’s makes a sugar free chocolate chip sweetened with Malitol (sugar alcohol) and there is only 1 net carb per serving. I got them at my regular grocery store right by the regular chocolate chips. No one in my family noticed the difference from the regular type. They are great!

            Thank you Dalene! I’ll have to look for these too!

          Have you tried my Fudgy No-Bake Cookies yet? That recipes is here on my site! Those are SO good!

    These look only too awesome. I might have to try them tomorrow!

    I have one question, though. Would chia eggs or flax eggs work in place of the real eggs? There’s sort of an egg allergy in my family.

    • 12

      I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! Give it a try and let me know in the comments. That way others can do the same if they have egg allergies. Good luck!

    I had some sugar free shredded coconut, I just ground it up. I also got sugar free chocolate chips t Walmart.

    These got pinned faster than you can say “Pass me the bacon.”
    Thanks for linking at Trim Healthy Tuesday!

      Oh Stacy…you are so funny! I need to make another batch of these too for the freezer. Have a great day!

        I recently found sugar free chocolate chips at the grocery store right by the regular chocolate chips (Hershey’s) they are made with malitol as a sweetener. They are great and I think on plan. They have 1 net carb per serving!

    I am so glad for girls like you who put the work in figuring out the recipe so that all I have to do is find it and make it! Thanks for sharing!!

      Hi Sherry, I love tweaking recipes and it has been fun creating some new THM ones! I have another yummy recipe that I will be posting about on Tuesday…so watch for that one! Have a great evening!

    These were great but were a bit salty. I used stevia extract to taste. Obviously I’ll cut the salt in half next time but has anyone else complained of this? Was it my sweetener? I used c oil instead of butter if that helps…

    • 21
      Sheri Graham says:

      Hi Jennifer! You know…you are right! The salt should be 1/2 teaspoon. I remember when I made these the first time that I cut the salt in half…but forgot to change it on the recipe. Oops! I have changed it now…thank you for catching it!

  9. 22

    How many cookies would equal one serving? I need to know so I don’t go overboard on these! Gotta keep it an “S”! :)

  10. 24

    Are these o.k. For a deep s?

    • 25
      Sheri Graham says:

      As long as you are careful what kind of chocolate chips you use and how many. That alone can increase the carb count quite a bit.

    Thanks for posting this. I just made these, cut the recipe in half and it tasted great! I didn’t have coconut flour so I used regular flour which I know is a no-no but is all I had. Can’t wait to try more recipes that you have posted =)

      Sheri Graham says:

      Hi Christine, So glad you liked this recipe, even if you used regular flour. Next time you can try it again with the coconut flour :). Have fun trying out some more recipes!

    I don’t have the NuNaturals yet, having a hard time finding it where I live. I do have Truvia though. What can I do to replace the NuNaturals and not mess up the taste? Thanks!!

    • 29
      Sheri Graham says:

      Hi Amanda! You don’t have to use the NuNaturals, just use more Truvia in place of it. Maybe add another tablespoon or two of Truvia instead. Hope that helps!

    I have a question….seems every time I bake with Almond and Coconut Flour, the cookies just fall apart. I have to roll the dough just to keep it formed on the pan. Am I doing something wrong, is there a trick I need to know?
    Thank you.

      Hi Jill, Sometimes you can add in some Xanthum Gum or you can just add in a little more butter to help it hold together. Hope that helps!
