Pecan Meal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Pecan Meal and hazelnut flour can create delicious cookies that are wheat free, fiber rich and very tasty as well. This recipe takes only 15 minutes from start to finish!

3/4 cup pecan meal
1/2 cup hazelnut flour
3/4 cup Splenda
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
sugar-free chocolate chips

Start by pre-heating the oven to 350F. Mix together the pecan meal, hazelnut flour and the Splenda. Next, mix in the butter, egg and vanilla. Add in chips to taste. Put a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet, and put 1" balls of dough onto cookie sheets.

Cook for 8-9 minutes. The aim here is NOT for them to get brown!! They should end up cooked - but not brown. Let them sit for a few minutes to settle.

Note that the cookies do NOT flatten out. They are going to be dome shaped. Plan accordingly.

These are REALLY really delicious. They're not going to be the texture of "sugar-filled cookies". They're going to be a bit gooey, and have a texture a bit like coconut. The flavor is great.

The benefit of course is that this recipe involves no sugar at all! Butter has zero carbs. An egg has pretty much no carbs - only 0.6g. The hazelnut flour and pecan meal are pretty much the only things here with carbs, and it is far less than normal flour. All told, if you make about 12 cookies with this recipe, you still get about 1g of carbs per cookie.

Splenda Note: Technically, a cup of Splenda has 24g of carbs. This would mean you would about another 1.5g per cookies for the Splenda. However, most people do not metabolize the Splenda as a carb. That is, if I eat the Splenda-sweetened cookies, my body does not react to that Splenda presence by gaining weight. Like all things, each of us is different. My philosophy here is that you shouldn't be eating cookies every day. If you have a special treat of cookies, and you go with a nice low-carb version vs the high-carb version, you're already making such a big difference in your sugar intake between those two that the extra minor details are not worth stressing over.

Pecan meal is ground WHOLE pecan nuts. You can grind your own if you own a nut mill! Meal differs from flour in that flour is made from nuts that have been de-oiled. Meal is made from the entire nut.
