These delicious and simple to make Chocolate Brownie Cookies are the perfect treat with just the right balance of sweet and salty. They are gluten free, sugar free, low carb, sugar free and Keto friendly!
These scrumptious cookies are for all of my fellow serious chocolate lovers. I promise these will not disappoint and will satisfy even the strongest chocolate cravings.
At the same time being sugar free, low carb and grain free. That’s my perfect cookie right here.
Although I still can’t taste or smell, I still enjoy the texture of a good cookie. I can “sense” certain things like spicy or salty foods but that’s about it.
But even though I can’t taste a cookie, I still love the texture of it. Thank goodness I created this recipe before I lost my taste!
I can attest to just how delicious they are.
You can also come back and let me know how much you love them and I will live vicariously through you.
You just need 7 simple ingredients to make these yummy cookies. If you already follow a low carb diet, then you most likely already have everything to make these cookies in your pantry and refrigerator.
And if you are just interested in trying this recipe or just starting out on your low carb journey, you most likely just need to order the Monk fruit, coconut flour and sugar free chocolate chips. Don’t worry, I linked them so you can order right from here!
These are super simple to prepare, you can absolutely have your kids help with making these. Mix all of the ingredients, scoop them onto a baking sheet and BAM!
Ok, it might not be that simple, but I promise they are super easy.
I used dark cocoa powder because I love dark chocolate and I love the deep color, but you can use whatever you like. I have also made them with regular cocoa and they were just as yummy.
Just make sure you use unsweetened cocoa powder, some of them have unnecessary added sugars and ingredients. You just want to see cocoa in the ingredients and nothing else.
Don’t you just love that deep chocolate color?
Personally I think the little sprinkle of salt on top is a must have, but you can easily leave that off if you’d like. I love sweet and salty and this is just the right balance.
I used the coarse salt to really add some texture but you can easily use a finer salt if you would like.
But I am and always will be a salt girl. Extra salt on mine always.
These cookies freeze really well too if you want to avid the temptation of overindulging. I totally get that and frequently freeze my desserts.
I typically freeze them in individual plastic bags so I can easily just take out one cookie and let it defrost on the counter for 10 minutes when I have a chocolate or sweet craving.
This also makes it a little harder to eat too much in one sitting.
When my kids were younger I would freeze them so they wouldn’t eat too many at once. I would put three in a ziplock bag (one for each kid) and just take them out of the freezer and place on the counter while I was cooking dinner and they would be ready to eat by the time I was done.
I was very surprised and excited to find the very last cookie in my freezer the other day. That is the best feeling, especially when I manage to hide them from my kids.
Next time I make these I will make a double batch and freeze a bunch. It just makes like so much easier.
I promise the texture of these babies still tastes amazing, even after freezing.
Until my taste comes back, I will just savor how awesome the texture is. So weird, right?
