Favorite Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies {THM-S, Low Carb, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free}


Ah, who doesn’t like a chocolate chip cookie? My family has a recipe we love — you know THE recipe (with 2 cups of shortening, 3 cups of sugar and 2 bags of chocolate chips)! This is obviously not in my trim healthy eating plan!

I have had this Nutiva shortening in my pantry for quite some time, but I was never quite sure how to use it. This week I had the sudden inspiration to revamp my old chocolate chip cookie standbye recipe!


Favorite Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

    • 1/3 cup low carb brown sugar (I use this one from Gwen’s Nest)
    • 1/3 cup Erithyritol
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. Mineral salt
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla
    • 1 cup THM Baking Blend
    • 1/2 cup Lily’s chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F

Cream shortening, “brown sugar” and Erithyritol until smooth. Add eggs and beat well. Add baking soda, mineral salt, vanilla and Baking Blend and beat until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop, place dough on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes.


They will be quite soft when they come out of the oven, but they will firm up after a couple of hours.


Do you have a favorite recipe you have converted to THM? I’d love to hear about it!
