What you'll need:

- 1/4 tsp salt

- 10 Tbsp melted butter

- Mix the dry ingredients. Mix the almond flour, salt and baking soda together in a large bowl. Almond flour is a good wheat-free, sugar-free, low-carb alternative to regular flour.
- Mix the wet ingredients. Mix the melted butter, vanilla extract and malitol syrup or agave nectar in another bowl.
- More mixing. Mix the two bowls of ingredients together and stir until just blended. Add the chopped sugar-free, low-carb dark chocolate pieces and mix well.
- Form the cookies. With your hands, break off a piece of the dough and form it into a ball. Optimally, the ball should be roughly one inch in diameter.
- Bake. Place the sugar-free, wheat-free, low-carb cookie dough balls on the cookie sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Bake at 350 degrees for six to eleven minutes, or until done.
- Cool. Cool the sugar-free, wheat-free, low carb chocolate chip cookies and serve.
- Health Notes. Malitol is a sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols may cause adverse effects to the digestive system, but they are not counted as actual sugars, so they are considered to be a good sugar-free, low-carb alternative. Malitol has a relatively high glycemic index which is rated as 51-53 on the glycemic scale. Agave nectar is a sweetener produced from the agave plant. It is comprised of both fructose and glucose, but it has a glycemic index of only fifteen to nineteen. Depending upon your dietary needs, you'll need to choose the best sweetener for you.
