No Sugar Added Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Going sugar free is easy if you want to substitute with Agave syrup, honey, etc.  But when trying to remove all added sugars, including artificial sweeteners, cookies become a little more difficult.  I’ll be experimenting with more sugar free cookies and posting them here.  This one I thought had a great texture but was not very sweet.  Perfect though for those who are just craving chocolate and need that soft cookie to remove those sugary cravings.

    ? Have you done the nutrition counts for these? I’m curious what the total carb counts are.

      I just did one here: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator, it showed 12 carbs and 8 grams of sugar per cookie. Not sure how accurate that is. Like I said, I’m worrying more right now about using refined sugar than actual carbs. Fruit for me is still fine, luckily. You can reduce that by reducing the dried fruit and/or using a dried fruit that is lower in sugar.
