You have tried my coconut flour cookies, my low carb blondies and even my cookies made with my baking mix, and now you get a quick dairy free version! SO many to choose from, so everyone, allergies considered, can enjoy chocolate chip cookies!
When using the Nutiva Coconut Sugar as suggested they come to 4g carb per cookie.
Otherwise, if you use all erithrytol, they are approximately 1.5g carb each.
