Ingredients

Instructions

  • Dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour (1 3/4 Cup), xanthan gum (1 teaspoon), baking powder (1 teaspoon), and salt (1/4 teaspoon).
  • Wet ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together butter (1/2 Cup), granulated erythritol (3/4 Cup), and vanilla extract (1 teaspoon). Beat until creamy. Add eggs (2) and beat until just incorporated. With beaters on, slowly add the flour combo to the butter. Stir in chocolate chips (1 cup) and chopped pecans (1/2 cup).
  • Shape + chill. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls and place 1" apart on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper (you'll need 2 cookies sheets for this). Press the tops of your cookies down to form a disk. Place cookie sheets in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Bake. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the center of your cookies are cooked through. Allow your cookies to cool on the baking sheet before moving, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Almond Flour - Recommended products are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands, as they're very fine-grain, which will give you the most flour-like texture.
  2. Xanthan Gum - can't skip or sub (guar gum doesn't work here). This is necessary to bind the cookie ingredients together.
  3. Lakanto or Swerve, vs. Erythritol. Erythritol is 70% as sweet as Lakanto or Swerve, so if using a different brand of erythritol, adjust accordingly.
  4. Sweetener alternatives - Fun fact: allulose doesn't harden the same way erythritol products do. For this reason, using allulose will produce softer cookies that spread/burn more easily. I strongly suggest using erythritol-based products here!
  5. Chocolate chips - I use Lily's milk chocolate chips, use whatever brand/flavor you prefer.
