welcome to high falutin low carb the random web series where we find and test the best low carb recipes this crazy Internet has to offer today we’re tackling cookies specifically low carb chocolate chip cookies stay tuned alright folks low carb chocolate chip cookies can it be done well if you’re like me you’ve probably made several recipes from online and other cookbooks and they all seem to be variations of the exact same recipe they take a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe they take out the wheat flour and put in almond flour or coconut flour or some combination of the two they take out the sugar or brown sugar and substitute an alternative sweetener sort of like erythritol or xylitol if I want some sugar-free chocolate chips and you wind up with a shortbread with some chocolate chips thrown in it you know it’s crumbly it doesn’t have that chewy bendy texture and crispy edges that I love about a chocolate chip cookie that’s what it’s missing if I wanted a shortbread cookie I make a shortbread cookie there’s plenty of recipes for those so I have chosen two recipes today that promise me that they are going to deliver on the chewiness and the crispness that we’re looking for now the first of those they were they’re actually both of these are recipe developers we have we have made before on this channel the first of those is Nam Nam Kham gnom G and om comm our recipe is Kido chocolate chip cookies 1.5 grams net carb and she’s got two special ingredients that are supposed to deliver on that to factor in that crunch factor and I haven’t made these we’re gonna find out together and the second recipe is by keto connect dotnet our good friends over there Matt and make up and their recipe is almond flour chocolate chip cookies chewy so they have a special secret ingredient in their recipe as well so these two we’re gonna try out here together and see if they deliver on the chewy crispy chocolate chip cookie now before we begin I need to give a huge thank you

appreciate it all right so let’s get started on our first recipe and this is keto chocolate chip cookies by nomnom calm and if you’ve been on this channel any length of time you know that I don’t give exact measurements these are not my recipes I didn’t create these these are somebody else’s hard work we’re just testing them so I’m gonna send you down to the video description below there’ll be links to all of these I am here on the screen below where you can find exact measurements for all of these recipes so please go check out these channels and their websites to get these exact recipes if you’ve been here you know that so all right we’re gonna sift this right you know me and the sifter so we already have coconut flour and almond flour in our sifter and you know I was going to mention some prices from thrive market the almond flour I was able to find here I used Bob’s Red Mill that’s the brand I prefer it was 1329 on Amazon when I looked it was 11 I’m gonna put some screenshots it was 11 19 at my grocery store my local grocery store and thrive market had it for $8.99 so you can see there’s quite a price difference there but don’t get onto me if the prices aren’t exactly as I’m saying here prices are volatile this is the price when I’ve shopped in September 2019 when you’re going to view this so if things are different in price you know that that’s understandable so we’re gonna sift this this is our oops this is our almond flour and our coconut flour to this we are going to add some arrowroot powder that’s one of the ingredients that’s gonna she says bring us this crispy and chewy Niseko from this and also this is going to be xanthan gum another one of those secret ingredients baking soda and kosher salt right so let’s just sift all of this together and get these lumps and bumps out of there see that you do not want that in your recipe get those out push them through and we’re gonna set this these dry ingredients to the side if I don’t make them too much of a mess too late get in there all right give this a quick whisk and make sure that’s combined we’re gonna set that aside now we’re going to turn our attention to the butter and we’ve got room-temperature butter here and our mixer and we’re just gonna cream this for about eight minutes I believe she said okay we’re gonna cream this for one to two minutes just the butter and then we’re going to add our sweetener which is the low canto I have not tried low canto before the low canto brand gold and sweetener this is another thing that I got from thrive market I was gonna buy this online on Amazon the low canto was 1395 on Amazon on thrive market 879 it’s a pretty good price so we’ll add this to our butter after two minutes and then we’re gonna let this thing cream for ten minutes total that’s the secret to her recipe you’ve got to get this butter light and fluffy so I’ll meet you back here in about 10 minutes [Music] all right that’s been two minutes we’re gonna add in our sweetener now this is the low kanto golden if you want to know how much check out a recipe down below and we’re gonna let this go for eight minutes and we’re gonna keep you know knock it down with with a spatula every few minutes so just so you it all gets incorporated okay [Applause] [Music] all right so this has gone for ten minutes total two minutes with just the butter by itself and then eight minutes with the sweetener and boy it has really grown it’s huge now to this we’re going to add a teaspoon of vanilla oh I didn’t open it come on now yeah Oh Lord that’s plastic Lantana metal one okay we need a teaspoon of vanilla and an egg crack it in a cup first save yourself some heartache guys add our egg and let this run for just a minute or two until it’s combined and then we’re going to slowly add in our dry ingredients while the mixer is on low so let this skip get moving and now while this is on low we’re gonna add half of our dry ingredients let it mix and then add the other half so carefully don’t throw this all over your kitchen [Music] now we’re gonna fold in our chocolate chips and she called for pecans pecans is what I would say but she calls for pecans I do not like nuts in my chocolate chip cookie I just don’t so I’m just not gonna have that so here’s our Lily’s chocolate chips and you know we were talking about prices I also ordered this from thrive market and Lilly’s my local store does carry Lilly’s I’ll put a screenshot up here when I went to the store they were 7:49 thrive market was $5.99 per pack and I now you know if you know me I live in Florida and it’s the middle of summer I mean it was a hundred and ten degrees that I ordered these so I was like oh I’m gonna get a bag of chocolate ganache when it arrives no it was I eco-friendly packaging but came in like a cold pack inside the box with the other stuff that’s another thing about thrive all of their packages the whole company is carbon neutral from the packaging to the national shipping and that even their certified even counting their employees commute into work every day completely carbon neutral so you know they’re it’s something you can have to feel good about so fold in your chocolate chips and your pecans or whatever kind of nut you may be using and from here this goes in the fridge and that’s another one of her secrets to making this kind of chewy and that crispy edge is you’ve got to chill this for an hour and I know that’s a pain in the butt because you’re like I want to eat my cookies well you don’t have to simmer down for a minute so scrape the bowl down get this into a nice little compact ball all right so we’re gonna cover this in plastic wrap and in the fridge this goes for exactly one hour and we will be back here in just a minute and we’re gonna start on recipe number two it does not require refrigeration so I’ll meet you back here in just a minute all right so now let’s start on our second recipe and this is the recipe from keto connect dotnet and it’s for almond flour chocolate chip cookies chewy now again all the recipes are down below in the video description as well as on the screen right here so we’re gonna begin this one much like our other one but it’s a lot less fussy I guess you could say we’re going to start with almond flour and again sift almond flour as you know I keep like I’ve said before I keep mine in the UM I keep mine in the fridge if a freezer because you know nut flours have fat in them and they can kind of get rancid unless you bake regularly with them so I keep mine in the freezer so this also our sweetener I’m gonna use the same low cantos sweetener just to since you know it’ll it’ll avoid differences in the recipe so we can sort of be testing the way the sweetener works also a little bit of baking powder and here is their secret ingredient this is beef gelatin right so this is what they’re saying makes this chewy like a chewy cookie and the beef gelatin you know we were talking about thrive market the beef gelatin I wanted to get the one that they recommended the Great Lakes gelatin it’s pasture fed beef and grass-fed and pasture raised and it’s a little pricey um you could they said you could also use just regular unflavored gelatin from the store but I’m specifically one of this because I’m gonna try to make some of those gummy bears gummy worms you know like um low-carb gummy worms anyway the Great Lakes gelatin on Amazon no story locally had it here for me was 2150 and thrive market had it for 1699 so there’s some savings to be had there I got to tell you so let’s just sift this out and we’ll be right back look at that you would never get that out nightmare alright so we just sort of mix this together make sure that’s incorporated well and set this aside and turn our attention to the wet ingredients and this is going to be melted butter they save some time here make sure you get it all out of there they save some time I guess you could say you know the other recipe she was adamant that that thing needed to be quit and you needed to aerate that butter for ten minutes she was not joking gonna add the egg and a little bit of vanilla all right it’s good get the egg and the butter combined make sure your butter is cooled down a little bit you know don’t don’t do it fresh out of the microwave when it’s melted because you can scramble that egg if you do and then in two batches we’re gonna mix this dry ingredients all right now get off of there try not to sling it all over me get off of there from here we fold in our chocolate chips pull this together and again our Lily’s chocolate chips I love the Lilly’s brand they are good so now this recipe does not call for it to be chilled we’re gonna go straight from here onto the pan and into a 350 degree oven so I’m trying not to work this too much but you do want to get your chips kind of combined so from here let’s get our pan all right so we’re gonna line our pan with parchment paper and nom-nom doctor I have I have some of the seal Pat’s as in fact I spent a small fortune on seal Pat’s and was gonna use those Nam Nam Kham specifically said do not use a Silpat because they will not spread and to get the chewiness and the crispy edges it’s got to spread now keto connect didn’t say that but they did specifically say to line the page with a blend of the pan with parchment paper and then I’m gonna take a portion scoop and we’re gonna lay these down you get they asked to get 16 to 20 out of these all right so that’s about as meetings well you don’t wanna get into clothes in fact I may already having to close because they’re gonna spread out a little bit so in these go into a 350-degree oven for how long should say 15 15 minutes or until golden brown and they got to cool for at least 20 minutes before we can try them so in there going and I’ll meet you back here in about 20 minutes we still have a little bit to go before we put our chilled other recipe in the oven so I’ll meet you back here in just a bit all right guys these are out of the oven and they look good they’re a little thick little taller than I thought they might be but I didn’t tamp them down I didn’t flatten them at all because that didn’t call for it in the recipe the UM the the Nam Nam Kham did so what I’m gonna do is these are gonna cool here they have to cool for at least 20 minutes they said shoo shoo shoo shoo shoo those are hot Atlee and i’m tearing this apart hold on they have to cool for at least 20 minutes now yeah go what’s happening to me they have to cool for at least 20 minutes before we can eat them and test them but the second batch I have tempt them down lightly with my fingers we’re gonna put these in the oven and these took about 18 minutes instead of 15 I bet these might take a little bit less because they’re flatter we’re gonna come back in just a minute it’ll be time to scoop the chilled ones and put those in the oven okay okay guys so the the rest of the cookies are in the back like IDO connect they’re cooling it specifically says that erythritol and sugar alcohol based baked goods the cookies they need to cool for a couple of hours before you taste them so we’re gonna do that but we’re ready now to scoop up our recipe from nom nom calm that has been chilling for an hour maybe an hour in ten minutes or so and we’re gonna just scoop this out it should be how it’s an interesting texture it almost feels like ice cream and we’re gonna put these on a tray again you’re gonna try to she said you can make twelve twelve giant cookies or eighteen regular-sized cookies and how long you cook them of course will obviously depend on what size you make them and she also said the flat out if you like a thinner crispy or cookie flatten them out somewhat and I did one with flattening and one without flattening on the keto connect we’re gonna try but so I’m gonna flatten these lightly she said once you have the dough shaped for these you can freeze the dough and then bake them added a couple of minutes to baking time so you can just make a cookie or two so you’re not left with eighteen cookies for Wesley to sit Nate which is a concern so we’re just going to debe these up alright so these are gonna go in the oven for nine to eleven minutes she specifically said to turn the pan around 180 degrees halfway through so I’m gonna scoop the rest of these out I’m gonna flatten these down let’s do that now I’m gonna flatten these down just slightly gonna um cook these and the next time you see me we’ll be testing all these guys alright so in the oven these go I’ll see you back here in five four three two one alright guys we’re back it’s been a couple of hours I had to go run some errands and truth be told get out of the house that had 36 chocolate chip cookies in it but we’re back and both of these looks super good I’m excited to try these out one of them looks a little bit more like a traditional chocolate chip cookie perhaps than the other but we’re gonna give them both a fair shake all right the first one here is by Nam Nam Kham these are the keto chocolate chip cookies and if you make eighteen cookies out of this recipe one cookie has 149 calories you got 13 grams of fat you got to a 2.2 grams of protein total carbs you got three grams you got fibers a gram and a half so that gives you 1.5 grams of net carbs per cookie now the second recipe here this is by keto connect net these are their almond flour chocolate chip cookies chewy these are the ones that have the beef gelatin in them if you make 16 cookies out of this recipe one cookie is 130 calories you’ve got 5 total carbs 3 point 3 grams of fiber 4 total of 1.7 grams of net carbs you’ve got three grams of protein and 12 and a half grams of fat so they look kind of different I gotta say I’m super excited just by the looks of it this looks more like the you know Nestle Toll House cookies that we you know all sort of know but we’re gonna give them about a fair shake they’ve had time to cool and you can see this guy here it’s kind of thin and here’s the test it didn’t really bend but it does feel kind of chewy it doesn’t feel super cakey that’s good it’s crispy on the bottom there’s there’s definitely a you know it’s kind of firm it’s very delicate it doesn’t hold together as well as a traditional chocolate-chip cookie but I have no problems with that I could eat that entire plate right now easily hold on I need some more okay yeah I got to tell you those those are great I haven’t even tried the other ones yet I’m sure they’re gonna be tasty too all that needs is a glass of milk and you just go hide in the corner you wouldn’t see me for the rest of the day now these are the keto Connect net these are the chocolate chip keto cookies almond flour chocolate chip cookies chewy and their recipe did not say to flatten them down but I did flatten some of them these were just as they were made and and you know you can see that there can you focus on that not my big fat head they’re kind of thick right there they’re pillowy and thicker if you knock them down just tamp them down a little bit before you bake them you know they’re more like a traditional cookie they did not spread as far as the nom nom cookies did to make them thinner but let’s see what that tastes like I want to test one of these against the thinner one of those hmm there’s also can you hear that they’re good okay both of those are very good for my personal taste by a long shot it’s the Nam Nam Kham cookies though I don’t know how they had similar amounts of sweetener in both recipes and it’s the same sweetener it’s that low canto golden which is an erythritol based blend that’s mixed with monk fruit far less of the erythritol taste for some reason in nom noms cookies and if you remember we whipped the devil out of that you know we creamed that butter and the sweetener for ten minutes and we pumped that thing was like three times larger with all that air perhaps that’s somehow worked those crystals of the erythritol you know they set in there and ground up against butter for ten minutes and I got to say I feel like that must have dissolved the sugar somehow because these do not have the granulated grainy taste of the erythritol that I can definitely detect in these now I’m not saying that these are bad at all but if I were making these again this took of our chillin this took ten minutes of whipping and it had a couple of other fussy ingredients instead of gelatin we used arrowroot you can also use the konjac or cognac flour there’s several things she gives you that you can use there and the xanthan gum so for this one I got to give it to Nam Nam Kham those are beautifully traditional chocolate chip cookies so there you have it
