Very Convincing Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately, I've been jonesing for a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie.  

 Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Seems like an easy enough request, but finding a good low carb chocolate chip cookie recipe proved to be more difficult that I expected.  I tried a good half dozen paleo/lowcarb/atkins recipes and each one was problematic in it's own way.  Too thin or too hard or too crumbly or too dry... or all four at once.

Then I thought, "Why are you making this so hard?"  

Just take a normal chocolate chip cookie recipe and swap out the flour, sugar and chocolate chips with low carb versions!  And by gum, it worked!  I ended up with a fluffy yet chewy chocolate chip cookie that can totally hold it's own against the real thing.  But this version only has 5 net carbs per cookie.  Not bad, if I do say.

This recipe is really fun to bake too.  My daughter quite enjoyed balling up the dough and then squishing it.
