Who says low carb eating has to be boring and tasteless!?
These little beauties are a great option to keep in the cupboard for the days you just want a little somethin'-somethin' to tide you over till dinner time without the sugar hit.
Give them a try this week!
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup Natvia (low calorie table sugar replacement)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
2 tbsp oat fibre
2 tsp gelatin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
2/3 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 170 degrees C and place rack in the middle position. Line 1-2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Measure and mix the almond flour, oat fiber, gelatin, salt, and baking soda into a smallish bowl and whisk together.
With an egg beater whip the butter with the vanilla, Natvia until light and fluffy; about 1-1 1/2 minutes.
Add all of the previously mixed dry ingredients and beat until completely incorporated. Scrape the bowl. Thoroughly beat in the egg, then add the nuts and chocolate chips. Scrape down the bowl and make sure the ingredients are equally distributed.
Portion the dough with a 1 1/2-2 tbsp dough scoop, or use a regular spoon, and space about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. The dough portion should be the size of a whole walnut. I get 12 portions on one standard sized cookie sheet (half-sheet pan). Bake for 6 minutes, remove pan from the oven and give it a few firm taps on the counter or stove to help flatten the cookies.
Return to the oven for 6-8 more minutes. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
