The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Sugar Free & Gluten Free)
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 cup almond flour (use a super fine almond flour- no grit to it)
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 egg yolk (you can save the whites for another time/meal)
  • 4½ tablespoons salted butter (melted)
  • 5½ tablespoons xylitol
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum - I tried leaving this out and the texture was not the same, omit this if you are on Kaufmann diet.
  • ½ cup Lily's chocolate chips (milk chocolate)
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and put aside. Mix all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add all other ingredients except chocolate chips and mix well. Batter may seem dry at first, use your hands to mix dough, it becomes moist quickly. Add chips and stir. Place parchment paper over cookie sheet and spray with non-stick. Make cookies into balls place cookies on parchment paper leaving an inch in between, slightly press down on the cookies to flatten. Bake for 10 minutes. Only let cool 1 minute before transferring to plate. Makes 13 cookes.
