These gluten free keto double chocolate chip cookies use low carb black soy beans instead of flour. And, they are sweetened with a mix of stevia blend.
It’s that time of year again! Although I have been pretty good about avoiding sugar filled snacks, I have a hard time in March when the Girl Scout cookies arrive.
It’s a tradition to order these once a year treats. I always give in to my favorite, the Samoas, because I love coconut and caramel. My husband and kids eat most of the cookies, but I do treat myself to a few of my favorites since it is a rare treat.
To help stay away from the boxes of Girl Scout cookies, I made a batch of keto double chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is a modified version of my black soy bean fudge brownies.
The cookies are more cake-like than the brownies. So if you like denser cookies, you may want to cut back on the baking soda and baking powder. If you leave out the chocolate chips, I think these would make great little whoopie pies by putting a vanilla cream between two cookies.
These little treats definitely kept me from going off my low carb plan. And, I have a starter recipe for making whoopie pies
I know some people avoid soy. But, I don’t find it harmful if only eaten in moderation. It’s tough to find a better substitute for beans on a low carb diet.
Bean flour has become popular in the gluten free world. So, it’s good to know there is a low carb option. The black soy beans are fantastic in these keto double chocolate chip cookies.
The Eden brand of canned black beans are organic. I’m able to buy them in my local grocery store in the natural foods section. Other natural food markets likely sell them too.
