Low Carb Double Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies
Seriously, these cookies are so good. My husband took the first bite and he scared me because he paused and his eyes got wide – he looked like a deer in headlights.
My husband is a very picky eater (especially when it comes to sweets), so I couldn’t tell if he liked it or hated it! Then, I tried it myself and…. ohhhh, I understood his look. It was so good!
It’s unlike any keto/low carb treat we’ve had. As I was taking photos of these tasty treats, Dylan said, “I’ve never actually been tortured before, but I feel like this has to be pretty close.” He couldn’t wait until I was done so he could grab another one!
We love cookies. Actually, we love all desserts! We’ve got a mega sweet tooth so we love to find low carb solutions to fulfill our craving! I mean, have you seen all of our recipes for sweets?
How to Make Low Carb Double Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies
- With the exception of your monk fruit, mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients, plus your monk fruit. Mix thoroughly, ensuring that the monk fruit has time to dissolve.
- Mix together your dry ingredients and your wet ingredients so that you are left with a dough.
- Shape your dough into approximately 1 oz balls (or desired shape/size) and place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until baked through.
The Best Sweetener To Use
There are three keys to the perfect chocolate chip cookie: chocolatey-ness, chewiness, and sweetness.
If you get these three things right, you’ll have a perfect cookie every time. We were able to master the sweetness of this cookie because we used monk fruit as our sweetener!
Monk fruit is perfect for all keto sweets, and these cookies are no exception. Monk fruit has no nasty aftertaste, it is completely natural, it has a ratio of 1:1 to sugar, and it tastes delicious!
If you want to make these cookies but need some monk fruit, don’t worry. We recommend ordering your monk fruit directly from Lakanto. If you shop on their website, use our promo code “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to save 20% off your entire order!
