Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Quick and easy-to-prepare, these Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies are a satisfying way to enjoy a treat while following a low carbohydrate diet. I've personally made them to take along on road trips for my family to provide a protein-rich snack that also cures the siren call of a sweet tooth. When you think of the many bars you can purchase, these cookies are a pretty solid way to enjoy fueling up.

    I just made these cookies, but substituted the almond putter with homemade pecan butter and they are delicious!

    Would anyone know if I could substitute the coconut sugar with stevia or honey? If yes, what would the exchange rate be?

      Wonderful! You can find some info about using honey in place of coconut sugar here: http://wholenewmom.com/whole-new-budget/baking-with-honey-sugar-for-baking/ I will say, though, that these cookies are rather moist already, using a liquid sweetener in place of coconut sugar may make them pretty gooey.

    I made these cookies, but substituted the hazelnut meal for oat flour because of the cost, they came out great, delicious and moist!!

    I have an oat bran muffin recipe which calls for 1 and 1/2 cups oat bran, 1 cup all purpose flour cont. With various items. You carry item no 6051518 called oat bran. Is it a grain or a flour? Described as 18 oz at $4.99. Please describe product to me in detail.

      Hi Patricia, here's a link to our Oat Bran product.

      Oat Bran Cereal is a deliciously smooth hot cereal milled from high protein oat groats. Oat bran is the outer casing of the oat groat, which is low in saturated fat and a good source of dietary fiber, including soluble fiber.
