Real talk…there is not much better than homemade chocolate chip cookies. Especially when that cookie is baked to perfection and hot out of the oven.
So, without further adieu…
ingredients for the perfect chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwich
- Salted Butter: Using salted butter means that you can limit added salt.
- Swerve Sugar: Swerve sugar is super cool. It is made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetables, and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors. It’s low-glycemic and safe for those living with diabetes, since it has little to no effect on blood glucose or insulin levels.
- Eggs: Eggs will bind your cookies together. A single egg and one egg yolk will give these cookies their soft and chewy texture
- Vanilla Extract: Please do not skip this ingredient. It is crucial to the flavor of the cookie.
- Pretzels: pretzels add another layer of texture to this dessert. It brings in a crunch and a subtle salty flavor pop. I used Rold Golds but any kind will work.
- Almond Flour: Almond flour is my flour of choice for these pups. Low carb and mimics wheat flour without the inflammation.
- Lilys Chocolate Chips: When perfecting the chocolate chip cookie, your chocolate can make or break you. Splurge on a high quality semi sweet or dark chocolate. Stand clear of milk chocolate and don’t skimp on the quantity. I also used Lily’s Chocolate Chips in my recipe for Chocolate Nut Butter Bacon Cookies!
- Salt: All baked goods need salt. Without it they’re just lip-puckering sweet.

the “don’t do this” of cookie baking
- Don’t skip the salt and the vanilla: These two ingredients make or break a cookie. Get the good vanilla and the flaky sea salt. It will be well worth it.
- Don’t over mix: You will get tough, sad cookies.
- Don’t over bake: In fact, under bake if you can because “carry-over” cooking will occur when they come out of the oven. ie: the cookies will continue to bake as they cool.
