Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies! However, over the last three years, as I have followed a low carbohydrate diet I have not been able to indulge my chocolate chip cookie craving -- until recently.  
My gorgeous and very ingeniousness wife has perfected her chocolate chip cookie recipe and - Oh, Wow! - are they good. 
Warm tasty chocolate chip cookies that are actually good for you served up by a beautiful blond in a very cute apron. . . I think this is what heaven is like. 

I have been promising my patients this recipe for quite a few months, but have neglected to write it down and post it. I would forget to take a picture of the cookies before my family had eaten them all.  So, this morning I took a snapshot and I had a few moments while eating the cookies on the plate above.  Here is the recipe:

Low Carbohydrate Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 sticks (1 cup) of butter, softened
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup Sweet Perfection
1/4 cup erythritol

1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup Carbalose flour
2 ChocoPerfection Milk Chocolate bars chopped 

Mix the vanilla, eggs, butter and sweeteners until creamy or fluffy. Add in all dry ingredients and mix. Add chocolate and mix. Place dough on parchment paper covered cookie sheets in 2 tsp sized scoops.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. 
Makes 45-50 cookies

(~ 2 net carbohydrates per cookie)
