Why This Recipe Works

These grain-free chocolate chip cookies have a salty-sweet flavor vibe.

When I make a batch at our house the kids and the husband can’t keep their hands off of them. I like knowing that my family is snacking on a healthier cookie.

Picking the right grain-free flour

You have a few options when baking with gluten-free flour.

Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is a solid option, especially if you can’t eat nuts. However, I find coconut flour to be a little on the dry side in baked goods.

Nut Flours

Most commonly finely ground almond flour is used as a substitute when doing low carb or keto baking. Almond flour would work just fine in this recipe.

I chose hazelnut flour, more commonly marketed as hazelnut meal in this recipe because of its rich nutty flavor.

NOTE: Find hazelnut flour in most well-stocked grocery stores.

You can order it online here if you can’t find it locally.

Low Carb Chocolate Chips

I used extra dark chocolate chips. Extra dark chocolate chips have a small amount of sugar. My favorite brand of baking chocolate is Guittard.

If you want to avoid sugar altogether you can use monk fruit and/or erythritol-based chocolate chip. Such as Lakanto’s chocolate chips or Lily’s chocolate chips.

Keto Sweeteners

There are a lot of keto sweeteners on the market. I chose the confectioner’s sugar-style sweetener for baking.

Swerve is a great choice. Lakanto is also one that I use quite often.
