Everybody loves cookies. Kids like them with milk, the British take theirs with tea (although they call them biscuits), but low carb dieters have to go without! But hang on, just because you’re on a low carb diet it doesn’t mean you have to forgo all your favorite sweet treats. There are lots of recipes for low carb cookies, low carb cakes and other baked goods on the internet, but if you’re short on time or are somewhat domestically challenged when it comes to home-baking, fear not, there is now a fantastic range of low carb cookies and other low carb treats on the market today that will help you stay on course with your low carb eating plan while still being able to indulge every now and again. Supermarkets may have aisles full of wonderful cookies to choose from but sadly very little in the way of sugar free or low carb cookies. Lucky for you that online low carb stores stock an array of tasty low carb cookies so that you can enjoy them with your milk, tea or just on their own.
These Everyday Gourmet cookies from Dixie’s Diner are ready to eat and have only 2 net grams of carbs for 2 cookies. They are gluten free, contain no sugar alcohols or polydextrose and are made with totally natural ingredients. They also come in 7 delicious flavors for you to choose from.
These Atkins Low Carb Cookies come in either double chocolate chunk or chewy peanut butter flavors. With only 5 net carbs per pack of 5 and just 3 diet counts these can be a tasty snack that won’t derail your diet.
Biscottis are great eaten either on their own or served up with a low carb dessert such as yogurt, mousse or low carb cheese cake. These biscottis from ThinSlim have been sweetened using erythritol instead of maltitol or splenda which means that there is no bitter aftertaste. They have also been manufactured so they don’t produce a spike in blood sugar so are great for low carb dieters and diabetics alike.
If you prefer a more buttery cookie then these Grammy Girls Shortbread are just the thing for you. They are deliciously crumbly and buttery and come in a range of six different flavors for you to try.
Macaroons make a delicous coconut snack or treat and these Jennie’s Macaroons are zero carb! Not only that but they are 100% natural and free from soy, wheat, sulfites, lactose and transfats.
Yes to Cookies has made some fantastic changes to their cookies recently.
The most important adjustment is they have changed their sweeteners to include all natural luo han guo. As a result of including this sweetener, they have been able to bring the claories down from 60 calories per cookie to 48 calories per cookie. Even better, the total impact carbs are now 0g instead of 2-3g. Creating cookies with these nutritionals is quite a feat, especially considering the cookies are also gluten free.
For those of you dieters who like a frosted sugar cookie around the holidays, the Yes to Cookies now come with frosting. This both adds to the look and taste of the cookies.
Finally, Yes to Cookies now comes in the flavor Old Fashioned Ginger Spice.
