Dr Jockers Comments

If you are looking for a great gluten-free, sugar-free chocolate cookie that is full of fat burning ingredients than you will love this recipe.  From start to finish, after you have the ingredients set up, you can make this recipe in roughly 20 mins!

This recipe goes beyond gluten-free in that it is completely free of grains.  Gluten free grains such as rice, buckwheat, corn, etc are all high in inflammatory carbohydrates and should be minimized for optimal health.  This recipe is full of life giving nutrients that are low in inflammatory carbohydrates and rich in healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants.

If you are following a ketogenic diet than this recipe will work for you as long as you use a sweetener such as the keto maple syrup which contains monk fruit and erythritol, which are natural sweetening agents that do not impact your blood sugar levels.  You could also use stevia as well!

  1. Can honey be used instead of this sweetener? I don’t need a lot of sweetening so less honey would be fine with me. I can’t stand stevia and if monkfruit is anything like it, no thank you. Our local Farmers’ Mkt sells wonderful honey from local bees. According to the time of year, the bees go to different flowers so we have a nice variety. The “healthy” sweeteners I find in recipes are a turn-off, but I have to have gluten free recipes.

    1. Hey Joan, many people find the taste of monk fruit to be much better when they don’t like stevia. You can definitely use honey if you would like! Just experiment to find the amount that works for you.

    1. Hey Michael, that should be fine. If your goal is to burn fat as a primary fuel source (ketogenic diet) then you would need to add some MCT oil as well or watch your carbs closely throughout the day. Otherwise it is not an issue! In the case of cancer, I typically like to recommend adhering to a ketogenic diet as closely as possible.
