Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

 

chcookie2

I came up with an encore for my lemon pudding cookie recipe.

They did not disappoint.

As a matter of fact….I literally had to force myself away from them!  (I can still hear them calling my name from the kitchen).

Hence my reason for doing a blog post 🙂

They taste great, and keep a great “cookie” shape to them.

I enjoyed two with a glass of cold Almond Milk, and literally felt like I was splurging big-time on milk and cookies!!

The absolute Best thing about Trim Healthy Mama is the freedom that it gives me to still eat the treats that I love.

….and lose weight while doing it 🙂

(just shy of 25 lbs so far!—go Me!!)

They really are that good.

Oh yeah….and did I mention sugar-free, gluten-free….

And guilt-free 🙂

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12-14
 
Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 TB coconut oil, melted
  • ⅓ cup Truvia
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 4 TB Unsweetened, Vanilla Protein Powder
  • ¼ cup Coconut Flour
  • ¾ cup Almond Flour
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips (I used Lilly's brand), as desired to taste
Instructions
  1. Mix together softened butter, coconut oil, and egg. Add Baking Powder, Salt, Vanilla, Truvia, and Protein Powder. Stir well by hand. When ingredients are well-combined, add coconut and almond flours. Stir. As the final step, add desired amount of sugar-free chocolate chips to batter. Mix until combined through. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet. Optional: you may choose to gently press the cookie batter down with a fork, but I like them to have the nice dome-shape to them! Bake 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes. These are a really soft cookie, so let them sit on the sheet for a bit prior to transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy!!

      that is a great question!! hhmm….honestly: I added the protein powder in an attempt to give it a bit more protein, because of the one egg….so you could always try it without and see how the batter looks…I’m not sure if it will seem too runny or not! If you try it…let me know!!

    These look so good! I’ve definitely found that combining almond flour with coconut flour gives the best cookie result. But most of the gluten-free sugar-free THM cookie recipes I’ve found have not had eggs which totally ruins the texture. I’m excited to try these! It looks more like a “real” cookie!

    I don’t have any chocolate chips, so I think I will try some cocoa powder in there instead. Maybe this would be a good thing for the person without any protein powder? It would give it extra body maybe.

    I don’t have any coconut flour. Would using all almond flour work?

    Hey Stephanie!! I am shooting in the dark here because I have never tried it myself, but I have read about Sunflower Seed Flour (http://paleoparents.com/featured/nut-free-almond-flour-replacement/). Maybe try this?? Deedee!!…I think you could use all almond flour but i would add maybe 1/4 cup more almond flour than the coconut, as it isn’t as drying as the coconut is, so i think the batter might be a bit too runny……(hope that works!! Tweak it more if needed!)

    I tried using only almond flour, you are correct they were very runny. It turned out as one big cookie, but still excited for my girls to try it when they get home from school. Thank you.

      I’m sorry to hear that Julie!! :(. Did you try adding more almond flour in hopes of thickening the batter a bit?? What a bummer!

      Hey Barbara! I want to say you can add more almond flour but I have heard that the ratio is just not the same and leaves the batter quite runny :(. I would first google ratio of coconut to almond flour to see how much more almond you would need to add!!! Gosh that was a mouthful!! Hope that makes sense and I hope they turn out great!

    I just made these biscuits and LOVED them. So do all the kids. I got about 14 biscuits out of one recipe, sorry cookies (I’m from Australia and we call cookies biscuits!)I made choc chips out of unsweetened bakers chocolate and some sweetener melted together and poured out over greaseproof paper, left to harden, then just chopped it up into little pieces, it worked really well.
    Thanks for the recipe. I will be making again for sure!

    I loved these!!! I used about 1/6 cup of raw sugar (I don’t do any of the plan sugars :() And the cookies were incredibly crumbly… Should I add another egg? Or should I change the sugar to honey? I would like them to stay together a bit better. Next time, cuz there will be a next time… YUMMY!!!

    Great recipe! The kids and I devoured them…and I even made a mistake by adding too little almond flour. Wondering how much xylitol I would have to add in place of truvia…as using 1/3 cup in one go is a bit expensive. Seems like it would have to be 3 cups if I go by conversion charts.

    Thank you so much Beth! I’ve really struggled to find desserts that taste “normal” on this plan and now I will look no longer! I have my go-to sweet fix. My hubby likes them too and that’s a real win! Yum yum yum! So happy!

    In regards to the protein powder substitution question…a friend of mine just made Fdgey Zucchini brownies which called for coconut flour and protein powder. She didn’t want to use the protein powder so subbed the amount with coconut flour, maybe a little less and added a couple tablespoons for NF greek yogurt. Her brownies had a lovely consistency. (THankful she brought me one to try!) This may work for these as well.

    If you used Swerve, how much would you use? I am also interested to know how much xylitol would replace the truvia? Thanks for the recipe. The one treat I have missed the most is a good homemade chocolate chip cookie. I am looking forward to making them tonight for the hubby and me!

      Hi Anne! Honestly….I usually shy away from “serving sizes” because for me it really depends on what I had for dinner!! Heavier dinner…..1! But then….there was this morning when I had cookies for breakfast…. 🙂

    Made them with sweetened protein powder. Blech. That taste was all that was off. That and I skimped on the chocolate chip cookies. I’ll definitely try again without the PP and more chips.

    Hey, I have made these 2 different times. The first time I made them they came out delicious!!! The second time, I couldn’t remember if I was supposed to spray pan or not so I did..they came out burnt after only 8 mins! I used same pan and oven so wondering if I shouldn’t have sprayed pan??

    So, will these have a strong coconut flavor? I’m not a huge fan of the taste of coconut. What could I do to eliminate that? Making them for Christmas! Thanks in advance!

    The cookies are wonderful! I stumbled across the recipe when looking for a tasty, gluten free cookie option and they did not disappoint. I used dark chocolate chips and Sun Warrior raw/vegan protein blend that I use for shakes, awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Hey Trina! Honestly, I have never officially figured out the nutritional stats for these, so I would be hesitant to say…I also think it depends on what we just consumed for dinner, you know?! However, depending on the size, I honestly and truly usually eat 2-3….and I still am losing weight, so it must be okay 🙂 Hope this helps!!

    Beth, thank you so much for sharing your journey…and this recipe. I have had such a craving for cookies! I can’t eat almond anything…so I’m wondering what else to try. I see you mentioned sunflower seed flower. I’ll have to look around. I will be sure to post what I try. God bless you !
