Big news today! You will never miss sugary food again when you try our Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.
We were looking for inspiration at the grocery store while we were shopping and thinking about our next recipe. Suddenly, a small box with sugar-free chocolate chips was staring at us. That was pretty easy! We were in the right place at the right time!
We didn’t want our cookies to be crispy because they are better when softened like with original cookie dough. It’s always best to have homemade treats on hand so you don’t have to look around or run into the store to buy something when your sweet tooth kicks in.
Ground almonds are the primary ingredient in this dough. In addition to providing healthy fats and fiber, almonds are low glycemic, which means that they won’t spike your blood sugar levels as much as other foods. If you’re in ketosis, then your blood glucose levels are probably very stable already.
Almonds are also a good source of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant abilities in the body. Research shows that vitamin E helps protect heart health, reduces oxidative stress, protects cell membranes, inhibits the growth of potentially cancerous cells, protects against cataracts and Alzheimer’s disease, and supports immunity. A one-ounce serving of dry roasted almonds contains 6.8 mg of vitamin E or 34 percent of the RDA (*).
This recipe also features immune-boosting and cardioprotective properties from the coconut oil. Research shows that coconut oil can be used to help prevent obesity and dermatitis (*).
You can also add some chopped nuts into the mixture if you like something crunchy inside. Our bars are very flexible and easy to make. You can dump all ingredients right into the mixing bowl. They will come out perfectly flavorful each time!
We suggest you double the ingredients and freeze some of it. You’ll have your bars ready to bake any time! Enjoy baking!
Preheat the oven to 390F. Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine ground almonds, baking powder, salt, and sweetener in a bowl. Mix well then add eggs in and beat one at a time with a hand mixer. When well mixed, add melted cream cheese and beat again until smooth.
Add melted coconut oil and chocolate chips. Stir with a spatula to combine.
Transfer the mixture into the baking dish and top with more chocolate chips.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden. Let them cool for a while then cut into 16 bars. They are best when served warm so you can taste the melted chocolate. Enjoy
