This Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe gives all of the flavors I crave without the guilt for cheating on my keto diet. I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #SolaSweet campaign, sponsored by The SOLA Company. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
Ten years challenge. Did you do it? I honestly did not realize how things got changed within ten years. In my case, my diet. If I could say to myself ten years ago, I’d probably say go easy on carbs. It’s true because I love carbs. But now my diet has changed. To the better and that’s how Simply Healthyish Recipes was born.
Speaking about a healthy lifestyle, my family has been into a keto diet. I’m, on the hand, not a fan of diet since I like trying all kind of foods. When I first heard about the keto diet, I had some reservations about the idea. I was concerned about giving up so many of the things I love; like dessert! So, I made it my mission to find keto-friendly recipes that would satisfy my cravings, and my family can enjoy. For the things, I couldn’t find a great recipe for I decided to create my own. This Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe gives all of the flavors I crave without the guilt for cheating on my keto diet.
Cutting sugar from my life seemed like it would be a daunting challenge. It is no secret that I love desserts! Giving up sweet treats wasn’t as complicated as I thought after I discovered a wonderful alternative called Sola.
Sola has no carbs and no glycemic response. It measures like sugar, and you can bake with it. It has 75% fewer calories than sugar is a must have for anyone looking to make keto friendly treats!
I have tried alternative sweeteners before. As you may have discovered, they are not always ideal for baking. Some of them taste like the chemicals that they are. Sola, however, is perfect for baking recipes like these Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies, mixing into your tea, or sprinkling on fruit. Sola tastes precisely like sugar with a fraction of the carbs! This sugar alternative is made with monk fruit and stevia leaves for a naturally sweet experience!
If you make this keto friendly recipe, chances are no one will ever realize you have cut the carbs and the sugar by using Sola instead. There is nothing sweeter than baking your favorite cookie and getting to indulge in one without the guilt!
You can find more delicious dessert recipes here. And the best part is you can replace regular sugar with Sola for fewer calories.Print
