Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookie Recipe

Today, I am in the mood for a good cookie recipe.  I rarely eat cookies, but sometimes I need one.  And I want it to not ruin my diet.  I have not tried this yet, but the reviews online are awesome and I will try it this weekend after I get a few ingredients!  6 g of carbs, 2 grams protein.

IN COMPARISON:

Mrs. Fields regular chocolate chip cookie is 28g of carbs, 2 protein and look at all of the ingredients.  Most are NOT good for you.  I am putting up the one with chocolate chips and walnuts to be similar to this recipe.

Taken from the Mrs. Fields website:

Enriched Bleached Flour (Bleached Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Sugar, Chocolate Liquor, Cocoa Butter, Dextrose, Milk Fat, Soybean Lecithin, Natural Flavors), Brown Sugar, Sugar, Unsalted Butter, Margarine (Palm Oil, Soybean Oil, Water, Salt, Mono & Diglycerides, Soybean Lecithin, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Vitamin A Palmitate, Beta Carotene, Whey), Walnuts, Whole Eggs, Canola Oil, Water, Fructose, Monoglycerides, Salt, Natural Flavors, Wheat Fiber, Food Starch, Soybean Lecithin, Baking Soda, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Xanthan Gum.

 

(Besides all of the filler, preservatives, etc.  It has Brown Sugar, Sugar, Fructose (three sugars) and Margarine (not healthy), natural and artifiical flavors, food starch and bleached wheat.)

My healthy recipe is simple and better for you~

  1. Great cookies! Only suggestion would be to provide full nutritional values 🙂 the recipe made 24 cookies for me.

    • The point of my blog, which I write for free and to help people lose weight. So, I stick to carb and protein info. It is a cookie, how much good nutrition is in a cookie? LOL
