Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Add melted butter, egg, heavy cream, and vanilla to a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat the ingredients on medium speed until completely smooth.
Add almond flour, stevia, psyllium husk powder, and salt. Mix well again on medium speed scraping down the sides of a mixing bowl with a kitchen spatula to make sure all ingredients get mixed properly. Finally, fold in chocolate chips.
Scoop out about ¼ cup of the mixture using an ice cream scoop or a spoon and place it onto the prepared baking sheet. Make sure to leave at least 2 inches of space between the balls as they will flatten in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes.
When done, remove the cookies from the oven and cool completely before serving.
Having a good stash of delicious low-carb chocolate chip cookies can be very handy for those nasty afternoon sugar spikes. These simple cookies are based on almond flour, butter, and fiber-rich Zen Spirit psyllium husk powder that holds the ingredients together. When buying chocolate chips, make sure to choose high-quality and sugar-free brands with a high cocoa percentage to reduce the amount of net carbs per cookie. You can also replace them with chunks of your favorite sugar-free, dark chocolate.
Preparing this fantastic treat is very simple as well – you simply have to combine the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and fold in your chocolate chips. Scoop out approximately ¼ cup of the mixture for each cookie using a regular ice cream scoop or a spoon.
Make sure to form nice smooth balls as the dough will flatten once you start to bake it and form itself into a cookie. Optionally, add a handful of chopped nuts or cacao nibs into the mixture and store in a plastic container (these cookies actually get better in time). Enjoy!
