Almond flour chocolate chip cookies with only 4 net carbs per serving!



  • 3 ounces (3/4 of a stick, or 6 tablespoons) of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of sugar, or Swerve/Monkfruit sweetener for low-carb
  • 3 ounce (a little more than 1/3 cup) shot of espresso or coffee
  • 3 eggs
  • 3.5 ounces (1/2 cup) of all-purpose flour, or coconut flour for low-carb
  • 4 ounces (1 cup) of blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 9 ounces (1 1/4 cups) of chocolate chips — the standard size bag you get at the grocery store – I use Lily’s chocolate because it’s sweetened with stevia


  1. In a stand mixer with a paddle attached, or with a hand mixer, beat your 3 ounces of room-temperature butter with your 4 ounces of sugar. Mix for about 3 to 5 minutes, scraping down the sides occasionally with a flexible spatula, to make sure its all incorporated. The butter + sugar mixer should become light and fluffy looking. Add in the coffee and eggs, and mix to combine again — scrape down the sides frequently to ensure even distribution. The wet ingredients all combined may look a little cuddly, but do not worry, it will come together.
  2. In a bowl off to the side, whisk together your dry ingredients – the almond flour, the all purpose or coconut flour, and the baking powder. Then add in the dry ingredients to your mixer and mix to combine – it will start to come together.
  3. Last, add in the bag of chocolate chips – about 9 ounces of chocolate chips – and mix for a few seconds to combine.
  4. Cover your bowl with the cookie dough with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight, so the dough chills and rests and comes together a bit.
  5. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a half sheet pan with Silpat or parchment paper, and using a small scooper, scoop out the cookie dough into 1-1/2 inch balls. If your oven is taking a while to heat up, put the cookie sheets with the dough balls in the freezer; we want the cookie dough to be COLD when it goes in the oven.

  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then let the cookies cool for another 10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
