Low Carb, Sugar Free, THM-S Almond Joy Cookies

I love to do make-over recipes. This can include old family favorites (like this Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe). Sometimes other people give recipes that they want THM-ified, and that is how this recipe came to be!

Low Carb, Sugar Free, THM-S Almond Joy Cookies

The inspiration for this recipe came from a Facebook recipe video. A recipe for Almond Joy Cookies – and they looked amazing! (Check out the original video here.) Quite a few people have asked for a THM-friendly version, and here it is.

With a few simple swaps, these cookies are sugar free and low carb. I have always loved Magic Cookie Bars (amazing low-carb recipe here), and these cookies remind me a lot of those bars! Of course they also taste like their name-sake, an Almond Joy candy bar, but without all the sugar and health damaging ingredients!

Chewy, chocolatey, coco-nutty, perfection! You will not be sorry if  you make these! My son and daughter even approved! (Which is saying something, because my 8 year old son is not usually a fan of Healthified Sweets!) I even shared a few with a non-THM-er and they liked them (Ha! You know who you are)!

This recipe only has four ingredients, one of which is my Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk. May I just confess here that I probably have been ingesting a bit too much of this? After it sits in the fridge it solidifies a bit and tastes like vanilla fudge! (A true fudge recipe coming soon) It is so good it is dangerous!

Low Carb, Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed Milk

There are many different uses for Sweetened Condensed milk, but this cookie recipe is the main reason I created my own Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe. Seriously, you may want to double it!

  1. Wow! This sound dangerously delicious. I love “healthifying” beloved recipes, too. It’s a satisfying process and important to keep and carry-on some of our family traditions and food. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. These look AMAZING!!! Do you think I could add some almond meal or coconut flour to this and have them still turn out? They look amazing to me but they look “gooey/not much substance” for my husband.

    1. I did think of adding coconut flour (but never did). It would be worth a try, but I wouldn’t add very much, as coconut flour is very “thirsty.” If you put them in the freezer for a while they firm up nicely.

  3. This look amazing! I can’t believe it’s only 4 ingredients, that’s rare for low carb baking. Well done, these look delish!

  4. So incase you are wondering why you need to let the sweetened condensed milk cool (I was a little impatient) ….. it melts the chocolate chips. 😛
