    LCHF chocolate chip cookies

    I bought 100 grams of 70 % Lindt chocolate for Easter, thinking that I would make LCHF chocolate eggs. But then I figured that I would probably just eat them all in one go, so I decided to make something where I could ''dilute'' the chocolate a bit. I settled on a recipe for chocolate chip cookies

    1∕2 cup butter
    1∕2 cup erythritol (the finely ground, icing-sugar-type)
    5 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1∕8 teaspoon salt
    1 1∕2 cup dessicated coconut
    100 g 70 % Lindt chocolate
    1 cup coconut flour


    Make chocolate chips from the dark chocolate. Mix together butter, erythritol, eggs, vanilla and salt. Stir in chocolate chips, coconut flour and dessicated coconut. Drop batter in spoon-sized mounds on a sheet of baking paper. Bake on 190 degrees C for 15 minutes. Makes 20-25 cookies
    Highly recommended!


    Note: The dough was a bit dry and crumbly. For a smoother dough, perhaps it could be worth trying to add a bit more butter or perhaps an extra egg. However, the crumbly dough didn't affect the end result - the cookies were divine and their texture improved further after a day in the fridge.

    Re: LCHF chocolate chip cookies

    Articgirl I was reading another recipe for some coconut flour pancakes the other day and in the recipe they use a tablespoon of pure beef gelatin because it apparently stops them from being crumbly, might be worth a try!
