Easy and Quick Chocolate Chip Cookie

This is spin-off of Cali's recipe. I couldn't resist trying a chocolate chip version.

1/2 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup of Splenda (I used liquid Splenda)
3 Tbs. of vanilla Protein Powder
2 Tbs. flaxseed meal
1 Tbs. coconut flour (you could probably add either more flaxseed or PP if you don't have this)
1/4 tsp. of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract

2 squares of 85 percent Lindt chocolate (chopped into little chips)

In a bowl, place butter, splenda, PP, flaxseed meal, coconut flour and baking powder. Mix well (by hand). Then add the egg/vanilla and beat again by hand until incorporated. Then fold in your little chips of chocolate.

Refrigerate for about 15 minutes until the dough is firmish.

Bake at 325 for 10 minutes on a Sprayed or Parchment lined cookie sheet.

This made 9 cookies...

Thanks, LindaSue..(our number cruncher). I'm going to make a double batch now..I think I will add some instant coffee diluted in a tiny bit of water and see how that works out.

Carolyn, how are they without the chocolate chips? Have you tried them plain?

Nope, I just made another batch with a touch of "coffee". I think you would need cinnamon or something in them that would give some flavor. Or, you could chop up some pecans or walnuts and put them in them.

Without anything, they would be pretty "blah" I do believe..

yum! Thanks Carolyn

I just made these delicious cookies!! Do you think using some chocoperfection candy bar would work for the choc chips-I used the Lindt85% and the choc is just a little bitter to me-I made them in my mini wilton's cake pans and they came out perfect!! I added maybe a tablespoon of chopped pecans.....I made 6 big, beautiful cookies

Jeri, they look fabulous..Mine are smaller of course, but look like yours. Any SF chocolate is great to use. I don't mind the darker taste, but a milk chocolate chip would be great.

I wonder if muffin top pans would work???

i tried them last night. . without coconut flour. i added an extra tablespoon of Protein powder. . . they were hard to swallow, i literally choked. they had a yummy flavor. just really dry. i think that extra bit of protein powder doesnt work. ill try with an extra tablespoon of flax meal instead and see how that turns out.

Ellie: Too much protein powder does make things very dry, I'm afraid..So, it's a balance between butter/PP..The key I think is to have them look like cookie dough after refrigeration. Before refrigeration, they should look a bit wetter than normal cookie dough.

I've made things I had to choke down, too..It's good for dunking in coffee..sometimes.

I made your variety, but added 1/4 c. toasted, chopped pecans.
My batter seemed a bit 'soft' so I threw in a bit of hazelnut flour
I got 9 really nice cookies but they were rather tall. Very very good.
Can't wait to make them again. This time I think I shall cut up some
low carb milk chocolate into chips and see how they turn.
BTW I used the CarbSmart chips. No flatulence at all.

Thanks Pal.

Barbo: Nommie with the pecan flour and thanks for the heads up on the CarbSmart chips..
If you like coffee..try this recipe with some instant coffee dissolved in a touch of water.
Nice flavor.........

As for the "tall" cookies..Now, before I put my batter into the fridge, it is slightly soft..But, after it is refrigerated, it does firm up nicely. Maybe your cookies were "tall" because they had more nut flour
than the original recipe..ya think?
