Welcome today to a new recipe I just tried: Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!
So, I’m still on a quest to lose 15-20 pounds. I started last January and actually lost 10 pounds by doing the Daniel Plan diet (detox for 10 days and then clean eating for the next few weeks). On top of that I cut out sugar for 21 days. I checked the labels and didn’t eat anything that had any sugar in it. I still ate fruit, drank some milk, and had honey, though.
I continued to exercise from February to August, but didn’t eat as well. I didn’t lose anymore weight, and gained 5 pounds back.
I am now convinced that a healthy diet is what is important for losing weight. Exercise is important for being fit and healthy, and I will continue to exercise. But diet is where it’s at to actually lose the extra pounds.
I started another 21-day Sugar Fast on September 1 and have lost 5 pounds already! I decided to go gluten-free with it, too. I’ve been eating omelets, salads, pesto chicken, hamburger (without the bun), etc. The food has been great–except on dessert nights. I love chocolate chip cookies! An instagram friend posted a recipe for gluten-free sugar-free chocolate chip cookies. I changed it up a little and had my cookies last night! (By the way, the photo is actually of the cookies I made.)

Mix together with wooden spoon:
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup stevia blend (organic erythritol and organic reb A (stevia extract))
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 bag Hershey sugar-free chocolate chips (I found at Wal-Mart)
Use 2-Tablespoon cookie scoop to put on cookie sheet. Flatten them, since they won’t flatten during baking. 350 degrees for 13 minutes.
So yummy when you aren’t eating sugar!
