The. Best. #Lowcarb. Cookies. EVER!!!

I have to write down this recipe before I forget, because I will want to make these delicious chewy cookies again and again! They're along the lines of an oatmeal scotchie, sort of. That's the flavor I was going for. Don't know that I hit it on the head, but they are WAY beyond delicious!!

4 eggs

1/2c coconut oil, melted 1/2 tsp vanilla 1/8 tsp butterscotch flavoring oil

1/2c granulated splenda 1/2c brown sugar sub (I used Sugar Twin brand) 1/4c polydextrose 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp cinnamon

3/4c "oats"* 3/4c unsweetened shredded coconut 3/4c pecan meal

Whip eggs with whisking attachment

Mix together coconut oil, vanilla, and butterscotch oil; add to eggs with mixer still running; mix thoroughly; exchange whisk for paddle.

In another bowl, thoroughly blend the next group of ingredients; add to mixing bowl with mixer running on low.

When these are incorporated, add last 3 ingredients and continue to mix until blended.

Place by rounded teaspoonfuls on greased baking sheet and bake at 350 about 20 minutes, or until bottoms are medium brown; remove to cooling rack.

This made 42 walnut-sized rich cookies.

*for my "oats" I usually would use 1 part steel-cut oats to 2 parts oat bran. But I'm out of oat bran at the moment, so used just the oats this time, which makes them a bit carbier.


  1. Sounds like a winner! How did they hold up the next day? My top issue with LC cookies is texture - they don't stay crisp after the first day.

  2. Actually these are chewy, as opposed to crisp...and, if it's even possible, they were even better the next day! And even today, I had 2 for breakfast, they're still great! :)

  3. So, where can I find cheap steel cut oats and oat bran? The ones I have found are 20 dollars a piece...thats not very cheap.

  4. I buy them from the natural food co-ops when I'm in a town where they have them. I pay less than $1/lb for the steel cut oats and a little over $1/lb for the bran. I can't imagine 20 bucks for either of them - yikes!
