Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart - Low Carb, Keto, Grain Gluten Sugar Free, THM S
My favorite meal of the day is dessert. My second favorite is brunch, because, at brunch, there is breakfast dessert. One of my goals is to always have some type of healthy treat in the house so I'm not tempted by my kids' candy stash.
It seems like someone is always giving them candy.
Candy at Halloween, Christmas, Easter, birthdays, and more. We have one of those big popcorn tins we put it all in that gets stored on top of the fridge. A couple of times a week they get to pick a piece for dessert. And when the next holiday stash comes home we throw out all the old candy.
This chocolate chip cookie tart is my new go-to easy dessert. It really only takes five minutes. I brought this cookie tart to my women's group meeting and it was an outstanding success. Those lovely ladies are frequently my guinea pigs when recipe testing needs to happen.
How to Make a Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart
The nuts go for a whirl in the food processor, you add the other ingredients, and that's it. Just pour the batter into a tart pan and top with chocolate chips.
Can I use other nuts?
I made this with walnuts that I had to use up. They aren't my favorite nut and were past their best by date but still tasted great in this giant chocolate chip cookie tart.
Next time I want to try it with half almonds and half pecans. I love the flavor of pecans but they are considerably more expensive than almonds so I think a combination of the two would work well.
What chocolate chips should I use?
Any naturally sweetened sugar-free chocolate chip is fine. You can also chop up a bar of sugar-free chocolate and use that.
Do I need a tart pan?
If you don't have a tart pan you can bake this in a pie dish but it may need to bake for a few minutes longer depending on the size of your dish. Or it should work to just make one giant chocolate chip cookie on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Tips & Substitutions
You can change up the type of nuts and type of chocolate in this recipe. Are pecans more your thing? Want to add a little cinnamon? How about chocolate chunks instead of chips? Go for it! Make this awesome low carb cookie your own.
- 3 cups walnut halves or other nut of choice
- 4 oz salted butter cold and cut into small pieces
- ½ cup Joy Filled Eats Sweetener (or see alternatives in recipe notes)
- 1 teaspoon gelatin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¾ cup sugar-free chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350. Line a tart pan with parchment paper.
- Pulse nuts in a food processor until they form fine crumbs. Add the butter, sweetener, gelatin, and vanilla. Pulse until smooth. Spread in the prepared tart pan.
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter. Press down slightly.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. The center will still be a bit jiggly but will firm up as the tart cools. Do not overbake.
