    INGREDIENTS
    • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter Stick
    • 1/4 cup Xylitol
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 1 large Egg (Whole)
    • 1 1/2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
    • 2 tbsps Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
    • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
    • 1/4 tsp Salt
    • 3 packs Endulge Chocolate Candies
    DIRECTIONS
    This recipe is suitable for all phases except for the first two weeks of Induction due to the nuts. Xylitol usually comes granulated but does not melt into the wet ingredients as well as regular sugar. For this reason be sure to measure the xylitol first and then powder it in a blender for 3-4 pulses. 1 cookie = 1 serving.

    1. Preheat an oven to 350°F. Use a silpat mat or parchment paper on the cookie sheet.
    2. Beat the softened butter with the powdered xylitol until light and fluffy; about 3 minues. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until combined.
    3. Combine all the remaining dry ingredients except the candies, stir to blend and then add to the wet ingredients. Blend until fully incorporated then add the candies.
    4. Form into 18 x 1-inch balls, spacing 1-inch apart and flatten slightly on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes then move to a cooling rack. Cookies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

    Instead of using xylitol for the first recipe, a healthier choice would be Stevia.

    If you haven't yet, look up "All Day I Dream About Food." Carolyn is amazing and loves desserts! She's low carb and diabetic, I think, so she gets what we need to stay away from.
