Chopped Chocolate Cookies

Sharing is caring!

 Chopped Chocolate Cookies are so decadent and tasty. As always my recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free, and many are dairy free. This is the first year in my life that I have not gained weight during the holidays, as a matter of fact, I am still losing weight. My functional doctor revamped my diet in hopes of improving my health issues. I have autoimmune illnesses. During Thanksgiving, I had Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Tarts and I have been having cookies. I am so pleased that there is no weight gain.

I am on my final prep days for our Christmas smorgasbord. All my cookies are made. There is Lefsa, Pickled Beets, Pickled Cucumber, Bread and Butter Pickles, Pickled Cucumbers, and Lingonberry Jam.

I hope that we are able to go to Midnight Candlelight Service on Christmas Eve but it will depend upon my families work schedules. For as long as I can remember I have always gone to church on Christmas Eve. When my mother lived in Sweden she too would attend candlelight service. It is one of my families traditions. What are your traditions? Please leave them in the comment area. I would love to hear about your traditions.

These cookies are super expensive to make. I ran out of Cocoa Butter so I didn’t have the option of making chocolate chips. If you want to make chocolate chips from scratch follow my recipe here. I used three of the Zazubean Nudie Dark Chocolate Bars. They ran about 4 dollars for 3 oz. Then there is the cassava flour, Birch Xylitol, Maple sugar, and butter. I have not had Chocolate Chip cookies for well over a year. Having these cookies were such a treat. I made about half the cookies and then froze the other half so that you can take the frozen cookies and make fresh ones any time you choose.

I use Birch Xylitol in this recipe. What is Birch Xylitol? It is an extract naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables. It is widely used as a sugar substitute in gum. Not all Xylitol is alike. Birch Xylitol is made from Birchwood. Some Xylitol is from corn be sure to read the label. In my opinion, it is sweeter than Monk Fruit Sweetener and therefore you can use less of it. I recommend that you do your own research to find out if Xylitol is something you would want to use. Please be aware that Xylitol is toxic to dogs. A small amount can be fatal for dogs.

This made approximately 85 cookies. Nutritional facts are without nuts as I did not add nuts.
