Hi, and welcome to LCF!

the short anwer, sorry to say, is no - there isn't a "one size fits all" conversion.

The BEST thing to do is look here for a similar recipe that has already been adjusted for low carb.

What is it you're wanting to make? Maybe we can help find something similar for you!

On the back of WHAT bag? Not Heath pieces I hope!

Can you post the recipe? If you state where you got it it's not a problem. There are several fantastic cooks on here who could recommend various combinations or "bake mixes" that would probably work for you.

Me, I'm not much of a "cookie cook" so I'm not a lot of help....
