Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies - Low Carb

IMG_7946-2.jpg

These cookie are honestly to die for! (they’d have to be one of my best creations yet) I can guarantee they will be hard not to eat in one sitting and will hit the spot if you are craving nutella, minus the bloat and sugar.

They taste like ‘Nutella’, are perfectly light and fluffy and are also a healthier alternative to regular cookies.

Although I’m not one to ‘diet’ I am eating less carbohydrates (and avoiding refined carbohydrates and sugars all together) in the lead up to my wedding.

They’re great for work/uni snacks or for energy before a workout!
