Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 2 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips unsweetened (high cocoa solids)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Line a couple of baking trays with parchment paper. (I used two large trays to cook the whole batch)
  • In a bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and erythritol (or sugar substitute of choice).
  • Add the vanilla extra and egg. Beat until smooth.
  • Add the almond flour, baking powder and salt and beat until combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips
  • With damp hands, make walnut sized balls from the dough.
  • Place the cookie balls on the tray, evenly placed.
  • Either using your hand or a large spoon, press down on the cookies to shape them.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes until golden around the edges
  • Gently remove from the oven and allow to cool. When warm, the cookies are more delicate when cooled.
  • Store in the fridge.
