Description

Healthy, low carb chocolate chip cookies with collagen.  Great for a dessert that is low in sugar but still tastes decadent.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup collagen (32g)
  • 2 Tbsp cassava flour (22g)**
  • 2 Tbsp monk fruit sweetener*
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt (omit if using salted nut butter)
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter (unsweetened, unsalted)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine collagen, cassava flour, sweetener, baking soda and salt.
  2. Mix in almond butter, egg and vanilla.
  3. Fold chocolate chips into the batter.
  4. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes***
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment.  Scoop out 1 Tbsp of chilled dough per cookie onto baking sheet (making 13-14 cookies).
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  9. Store in air-tight container in pantry, fridge or freezer.

Notes

*May substitute with any granulated sugar or sweetener.  Add an additional 1-2 Tbsp sugar/sweetener for a sweeter cookie taste.

**May omit cassava flour, but cookies will have a different texture.  They will turn out flat and fall apart easily, but still taste great.  Baking time will lessen if you omit cassava flour.  Another alternative is to substitute the cassava flour with another gluten free flour blend or all-purpose flour (making the cookies not Paleo).

***Refrigerating the dough helps the cookies hold their shape when they bake.  You don’t have to complete this step, but it is highly recommended.  While the dough chills – do the dishes!
