Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies

Printable Recipe
1 & 1/2 sticks of butter (or 3/4 c),  softened
1/2 c xylitol
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 c  coconut flour (sifted)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c Hershey's sugar free chocolate chips-or 85% dark chocolate broken up into pcs.
*crushed walnuts*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugars in an electric mixer, such as a kitchen aid *(I used my food processor with the dough hook). 
Add cream cheese and mix well. Add vanilla extract and egg, continue mixing. 
Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until a nice creamy dough forms. 
Add in chocolate chips and mix until combined. 

Place dough onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart, using a small cookie scoop (or about 2 tablespoons). 
Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes,  The cookies should be light golden in color, and kind of soft. 

Let cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Once cooled, store in a ziploc bag or other air tight container inside of the refrigerator. Eat cold and enjoy with a tall glass of Unsweetened almond milk!

** My batch made 23 cookies at 13 carbs and less then 1 sugar each**
Here I used some fresh cranberries cut up in place of the chocolate chips and some crushed walnuts.

I got this recipe from: butmamaimhungry and altered it to fit the BFC.


  1. Yum! But,be careful with the xylitol, it's deadly to dogs!

    1. thank you I do know that already and maltitol too. So no Natures Hollow for them. :-)

  2. I didn't know that ladies about the dogs and xylitol and malitol. Learned something new. I will make these once I get what I gained off. No self control right now, so I had better stay away from anything sweet, even if it is belly good!! XO!

  3. Those sound SO good! I can never find sugar-free chocolate chips where I live though.

  4. Kim, you'd probably do fine with a dark, dark chocolate bar chopped small as Rosalie mentions in her recipe. Our local store carries the sf chips but I can't make myself pay that ridiculous price for a small bag (smaller than that of regular chocolate chips). Love Lindt bars!

    Rosalie, I'm thinking that these are probably cake like in texture?

    1. Yes they are softer - not crispy because of the coconut flour, but taste even better after you refrigerate them.

  5. Hi! Love your almond flour mug cake so much better than the "original"! ;)
    Just curious why you use xylitol instead of (baking) stevia, which is what I've used a lot. Is it better for baking temps? I haven't bought/used xylitol but may have to get some to try your recipes if I can't sub with stevia...thx!!

  6. thanks for posting such great recipes. I look forward to trying these. You are such an inspiration & I feel that since you've been doing BFC for so long, you have so much knowledge that I admire. I'm 5 weeks in & learning each day. Thanks for you help, motivation, and blog.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
