The Best Low carb, Sugar Free Monster Cookies (like a low carb M&M Cookie or...chocolate chips cookie)


A couple weeks ago I got into a cookie making mood and although I don't like chocolate chip cookies myself, I was making a vanilla 'sugar' cookie for me, so I whipped these up for my husband.  

I was using our regular old sugar and flour recipes but substituting keto and low carb options.  If you leave the chocolate candies off these and use plain sugar free chocolate chips you can save carbs but the option of sugar free 'gem' candies (like M&M's) are fun if you can afford the few extra carbs.

1/2 c butter, softened
1 c brown sweetener, like Swerve
3 T granulated white sweetener, like Lakanto
1 egg
2 t vanilla extract (good quality like Watkins)
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 3/4 c King Arthur Keto Flour
6 oz. chocolate gem sugar free candies, or about 6-8 oz. sugar free chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sweeteners, beat in the egg and vanilla.   Add the dry ingredients.  You can add the chocolate chips at this point but if you are using gem candies, and want them to show up bright and pretty on top, add them later - after you form your cookies on the pan.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet or parchment covered.  Top with the colored candies or even more chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 for about 9 minutes or until the edges are just golden.  Let cool on the pan for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
