CHUNKY MONKEY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES




CHUNKY MONKEY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

These are super-chunky, VERY large cookies (big as a muffin!).  These cookies have the best texture kept in the freezer.  This also ensures you can take out one now and again, while keeping them in the freezer for longer storage.   For those who can't have chocolate try the unsweetened carob chips available on Amazon.  

14 tbsp butter (210 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucraslose or stevia) to equal 3/cup (175 mL)
  sugar
1/cup granulated erythritol, OR (60 mL)
  6 coffee sweetener packets
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
2 egg yolks
13/cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2  (CLICK) (425 mL)
  (no gelatin required - as is often the case for cookies)  OR
  for Grain-Free - use Grain-Free Bake Mix, OR 2 cups Keto Bake Mix
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)  
1/tsp salt (1 mL)
11/cups sugar-free chocolate chips (375 mL)
1 cup chopped raw almonds (250 mL)
  (lightly toasted in a dry nonstick pan, if desired)
1/cup grated unsweetened coconut (125 mL)


Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). 

In food processor, process butter, liquid sweetener, erythritol, OR coffee sweetener packets, vanilla extract and egg yolks.

Using a cookie scoop (2 tablespoonfuls), drop cookie dough on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown underneath.
