How to make Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Directions

  1. Begin by combining almond flour, sweetener, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and browned butter in a mixing bowl. Use a mixer on medium-high speed to blend these ingredients into a well-mixed dough.
  2. Next, gently fold in the chocolate chips to distribute them evenly throughout the cookie dough.
  3. Afterward, take portions of the dough and roll them into balls, then place these on a cookie sheet. Lightly flatten each dough ball.
  4. Preheat your oven and bake the cookies for about 15 to 20 minutes, but keep an eye on them as baking times can vary depending on your oven. Once they’re golden and baked to your liking, carefully remove them from the oven.
  5. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before attempting to move them. Otherwise they will crumble apart.

Pro Tip

To quicken the cooling process, throw the cookies into the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

  • In the meantime use a large mixing bowl to combine Almond Flour, sweetener, cream cheese, vanilla extract and browned butter. Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer. Note - make sure browned butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will 'cook' the batter.

  • Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 17 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it's up to you!

      Hi Melissa. We don’t have the plugin that runs that for us, but here are the numbers from a recipe convertor found on Google. Calorie ~ 85 Fat ~ 8.5g per cookie.

  2. These are so amazing! I love that I can eat more than one without overdoing it on the carbs. Thanks for the delicious recipe!!

  3. These are really easy to make. The brown butter adds a lot of flavor. I added pecans instead of chocolate chips just because I didn’t have chips. They were delicious. Served with a cold glass of almond milk it made for a great carb friendly snack.
