Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh! Hello there!! Long long time no see! I've been here, well here, but not blogging. Life is happening and you know how that goes. So yes, here is a different kind of recipe I have never blogged about. Keto/Low carb. This past year has been my biggest health journey yet. Back in February, I went 0-low sugar and then some months later an online friend started a 6 week Keto challenge. I figured I'd learn about it and give it a shot, why not? I still had weight to lose and my diabetes to manage. Well 6 weeks came and went and here I still am! 12 weeks and about 8 pounds to my final goal weight! Mind you, I only had about 20 to lose since trying Keto. Anyways, my glucose number have been fabulous lately and I keep having to buy smaller clothes, so I guess it's working for me! Yes, I'm eating. Lots of stuff! Probably food you'd all freak about, but yes, it's keto friendly!! Pizza, burgers, cookies and of course salad, chicken, eggs, avocados... lol.  I track my macros in My Fitness Pal (sorry for these, you'll have to add it up using the Ing. you use) and share my journey on my IG @mihrfitness.

They say craving go away, but not really for me. I'm just been so disciplined so long that I can pass or wait it out. Well, I decided to give these keto friendly cookies a try. Even if they were a bit messy to shape, they worked out and they were delicious!! If you are doing Keto or interested in it, follow me on my IG!

Enjoy, Rachelle

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from a hint of yellow

1 1/4 cup almond flour (mine is unblanched)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
6 TBL Truvia sweetener
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup Lily's unsweetened chocolate chips
1/4 c or so Macadamia nuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350'.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl, add the almond flour, baking soda, salt, sweetener. Mix well. Add the oil and mix. Mix in the vanilla. Add the chocolate chips, nuts and mix one last time. Scoop one tablespoon of the dough on the baking sheet and flatten with your hands (OK mine were crumbly, so I had to really piece them together, but they worked). Leave enough space between each portion. Bake for 10-13 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheet before eating.
