      Let’s look at the main ingredients: 

      • Eggs
      • Almond flour 
      • Butter
      • Cream cheese
      • Chocolate chips
      • Sweetener

      Eggs and almond flour are natural, nutritious foods. Each has its own health benefits and provides a great source of healthy omega fats for healthy sugar-free chocolate chip cookies. 

      But what about butter and cream cheese? What about the added milk in chocolate chips? Is dairy healthy? 

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and limit consumption.

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy. 

      Add 328g of sugar (10g/cookie) to this recipe and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

      Substitute the sugar for a quality sugar alcohol, and this dessert becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, and long-lasting energy.

      Chocolate Chip Cookies Tips 

      1. Enjoy fresh baked cookies every night

      Don’t bake the whole batch of cookies in one go. Scoop out one or two cookies per person, and save the rest of the dough in the fridge. Eat a fresh-baked cookie every night! (And who doesn’t love the smell of cookies baking in the oven?)

      Side note: before storing your cookie dough in the fridge, level out the dough’s surface in your storage container. This makes scooping the cookie dough easier. We recommend preparing and storing your cookie dough in a glass mixing bowl with a lid.

      2. Let the cookies cool (the way you like)

      Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes for a warm gooey center and crisp outer edge. Or you can let the cookies cool completely for a soft, chewy cookie. 

      3. How long can I store the cookies?

      Store at room temperature for 5 days or in the refrigerator for 7 days.

      3. Use a cookie scoop

      A cookie scoop serves uniform cookies that bake evenly. If you’re wanting to bake these healthy cookies on the regular, a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop is a welcomed tool. 

      4. Use room temperature ingredients. 

      To allow for super easy mixing, let your butter, cream cheese, egg, and egg yolk warm and soften room temperature. This helps prevent the ingredients from clumping, creating a smooth batter. 

      5. Got leftover chocolate chips? 

      Save them for a second batch, or use them to whip up chocolate toffee, too. 

      6. Separate the egg white with ease. 

      Crack the egg over a bowl, making sure to keep the yolk in one half of the shell. Then, gently transfer the yolk back and forth between each half of the shell, and allow the egg white to fall out into the bowl. Add the yolk to the cookie batter, and store the egg whites in glass tupperware in the fridge to use for candied pecans.  

      7. Cover your baking sheet. 

      Make clean up easy and prevent waste by covering your baking sheet with a non-stick baking mat. 

      8. Want more flavor or texture? 

      Add in or replace the chocolate chips with mix-ins like chopped nuts or dried fruit for a boost of sweet and savory flavors and a little extra crunch or chewiness.
