Low Carb Cookies Recipes
One of the things that most low carb eaters miss is cookies and deserts. These days, however the low carber need not go without as there are new ingredients you can use for baking that have few or even no carbs.
Here’s a couple of recipes for low carb cookies that you might enjoy:
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
I reduced some of the fat in this recipe by eliminating 1 egg yolk and replacing oil with apple sauce. You can reduce the fat and calories by about another 25% by using lowfat margarine instead of butter, but watch out for the trans fats in whatever you decide to substitute.
1 ¾ cups Atkins Bake Mix
1 ½ cups Splenda
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter
1 egg white
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Combine Bake mix, Splenda, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl combine margarine and sugar beating until creamy. Add eggs, applesauce, vanilla and mix well. Combine wet and dry ingredients and use a mixer on low speed to blend well. Fold in chips.
Drop dough by level teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. I find they come out better if I flatten the dough down on the sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, let cookies cool on trays for 2 minutes, then transfer to wax paper or wire racks for further cooling.
