Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
These Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies totally nail the taste and texture of your favorite classic treat – my family had no idea they were healthier! These gluten-free, dairy free, refined sugar-free chocolate chip cookies give you all the comfort without the guilt.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Atkins. The opinions and text are all mine.
So, these cookies. We’ll start with a description from my older daughter and pickiest of all of my kiddos. She does not seek out desserts that are healthy or gluten-free or low carb or any of the other things that these cookies are. She just cares that they’re delicious.
“Once you get past the crispy exterior, it’s so chewy and moist and wonderful. And OMG the chocolate chunks…they’re like fudge put in cookie form. I want these always and forever. They’re little pillows of happiness.”
This was the common reaction to these cookies. Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for this recipe. It’s a recipe from the “Atkins: Eat Right, Not Less: Your Guidebook for Living a Low-Carb and Low-Sugar Lifestyle” lifestyle book by Colette Heimowitz. New from Atkins, this revolutionary low carbohydrate lifestyle book—fully illustrated and packed with 100 delicious whole-food recipes—will teach you to eat right, not less, to reach your weight management goals and achieve optimal health. So much goodness in this lifestyle book! I can’t wait to try everything!
Have you ever tried reducing your sugar and carbohydrate intake, like the Atkins lifestyle? With delicious recipes, like this one, it’s not all that difficult.
All about Atkins
If you’re interested in following a low carb lifestyle, believe me, you’ll be pretty impressed with all of the fabulous resources Atkins has to offer. Also, be sure to give these yummy Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies a try!
The greatness of Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Thank goodness, Chocolate Chip Cookies can still be part of a low-carb lifestyle when made with nutritious almond flour and unsweetened chocolate. These also call for coconut oil rather than butter, which I think makes for a puffier, softer cookie. Winning!
These cookies may be free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar, but they are also most definitely still awesome. If soft, thick, just-a-little-doughy-in-the-middle, loaded chocolate chip cookies are your thing, you’ll love these. You won’t even notice that they’re a little better for you, but you can rest easy knowing these are way more guilt-free. Enjoy!

Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Olive oil or coconut oil spray
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract optional
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup baking stevia
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips, divided (use dairy free if preferred)
- Preheat then oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with spray or line with parchment paper. Place the coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using) in a large mixing bowl, and beat with an electric mixer (or stir by hand) until smooth and creamy, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, stevia, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Beat the almond flour mixture into the wet ingredients until the dough comes together. Stir in a little over half of the chocolate chips, saving 1-2 tablespoons for adding to the top of the cookie.
- Drop the cookie dough onto then prepared baking sheet by teaspoonfuls. Gently flatten cookies by pressing with a fork or spatula, if needed. My coconut oil was melted, so my cookies did not need to be pressed down. Press a few chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie. Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the cookies from then baking sheet and place on a wire rack to cool completely, then serve. Store in an airtight container on the countertop for up to 4 days.

I’m having to go through dietary changes right now. And gluten free would definitely help. Cannot give up all my fun things like chocolate chip cookies. Thanks for the great recipe.
I don’t need gluten free thankfully, but I think this is a great option for those that do need it. It’s great to be able to have traditional foods!
This recipe looks very nice, I love cookies and these sound very healthy too. Will have to make this recipe soon
These cookies sound too good to be true! I don’t eat dairy which means I rarely get to eat things like cookies but I’m going to have to try this out! Plus the cookbook sounds really interesting, I like to eat only a little amount of carbs so it sounds like the ideal book for me! Thanks for sharing!
Your title starting with low carb itself sparked curiosity in me. Lovely recipe..Chips AHOY

Ya know, I haven’t baked cookies in such a long time. I am definitely overdue. 🙂
