You might find yourself wondering whether buying almond flour or almond meal makes a difference in this recipe when out at the store. For a soft, uniform consistency and a dense, non-crumbly texture, which is exactly what is wanted in cookies or other baked goods, you want to buy blanched (skinned) almond flour.

What can I substitute for almond flour?

If you are allergic to almonds, no worries! Ground sunflower seed meal is a perfect allergy-friendly swap.

Guilt-Free Treat!

The chocolate chips in these low carb cookies are sugar-free. By cutting sugar out of the equation, you are cutting the guilt and unhealthy effects that come with it as well.

How to store chocolate chip cookies?

Chocolate chip cookies should be frozen for long-term storage. If you want to keep the cookies fresh for only about a week, the cookies can be stored in an airtight container. Plastic wrap should be used to separate cookies layered on top of each other. A crafty way to preserve the softness of your cookies is to put a slice of bread in the airtight container for the cookies to absorb its moisture.
