Favorite Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies {THM-S, Low Carb, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

Ah, who doesn’t like a chocolate chip cookie? My family has a recipe we love — you know THE recipe (with 2 cups of shortening, 3 cups of sugar and 2 bags of chocolate chips)! This is obviously not in my trim healthy eating plan!

I have had this Nutiva shortening in my pantry for quite some time, but I was never quite sure how to use it. This week I had the sudden inspiration to revamp my old chocolate chip cookie standbye recipe!

Favorite Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

    • 1/3 cup low carb brown sugar (I use this one from Gwen’s Nest)
    • 1/3 cup Erithyritol
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. Mineral salt
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla
    • 1 cup THM Baking Blend
    • 1/2 cup Lily’s chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F

Cream shortening, “brown sugar” and Erithyritol until smooth. Add eggs and beat well. Add baking soda, mineral salt, vanilla and Baking Blend and beat until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop, place dough on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes.

They will be quite soft when they come out of the oven, but they will firm up after a couple of hours.

Do you have a favorite recipe you have converted to THM? I’d love to hear about it!

      1. I’m so sorry. I’m only 1.5 weeks in to THM and still learning all this lingo. What is xylitol? And you said you could use more, but I didn’t see that already listed in the recipe. How much would I put in? Please help! I want so badly to make these cookies. 🙂 thank you!!!

        1. I’m so sorry about the “more” part – my fault! You could use 2/3 cup of xylitol in place of the brown sugar substitute and the erythritol. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is a THM approved sweetener. If you would like to know more about exactly what xylitol is, you can check out

  1. Could butter or coconut oil be subbed for the shortening? I have everything else but that and would love to make these!

  2. These look so yummy! do you think you could substitute butter for the palm shortening?
    I have tried these amazing oatmeal cookies. They are mexican, and definitely not planned approved. They’re made from a combination of regular flour and oat flour. they are so chewy, moist, and yummy. I would love to make them into THM cookies.

    1. Yes, I think butter would work great! I have also had people say they have used coconut oil with good results. Those oatmeal cookies sound yummy! I have a THM oatmeal cookie on the agenda!

    1. I can find all these ingredients locally at my Natural Grocers grocery store. You can also use the affiliate links above to order them on Amazon if you wish.

  3. My, OH My… I have to say this is THE BEST chocolate chip recipe I have tried since starting THM 3 years ago!! I did add 1/2 c toasted walnuts because I LOVE nuts in my chocolate chippers…but with my size cookie scoop I got 30 cookies!! oh THANKS for this recipe!!
