Chocolate Chip Cookies, V3

So I love my old chocolate chip cookie recipe that I developed, but I had some dietary changes. This recipe is in progress and attempted to eliminate added/non-natural sugars as well as some experimentation with flour types.


  • This recipe was designed and baked at an elevation of ~6,900 feet.
  • Rub coconut oil on the inside of measuring cup before filling it with honey, it makes it a little easier to empty cleanly
  • I’ve been playing with the flour mixture, currently about 50% white and 50% whole wheat.
    • If you do this, I think there needs to be about a tablespoon of coconut oil or coconut butter to prevent the cookies from seeming dry.


  • cup flour (430 g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks, ~65°F)
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ct
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Hu No Sugar added keto baking chocolate chips (these are sweetened with dates)


  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Beat butter, honey, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl. It doesn’t quite cream in the same way a traditional sugar/butter mixture does, but there’s some similarities. It should take a while and it should get lighter, smoother, and more homogenous, although not quite as homogeneous as butter/sugar.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
  4. Gently beat in flour mixture on low speed, occasionally clearing the edges of the bowl. Be carful not to compress the egg mixture too much.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Form dough into balls 1” in diameter and drop onto ungreased baking sheet 2” apart. Don’t press the dough balls flat, unless you want really flat cookies.
  3. Bake for ~9 minutes. Cookies should look just barely dry and begin cracking on sides. They should be just barely set when poked gently with a finger r and there should be minimal visible browning on edges of cookies.
  4. Remove cookies from oven, immediately place on cooling rack.

Eat when it feels right. Fully baked cookies can be saved in a container for up to a week.
