Low Carb Paleo Dessert Recipes: Coconut Flour Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sugar Free Desserts Without Artificial Sweeteners

When you read through the ingredients of this recipe, you might be a bit surprised that one of the ingredients is beef gelatin. It’s in a few of my other low carb paleo dessert recipes, along with keto bomb dessert recipes. Sometimes I even add it to my sugar free ice cream recipe, which is a low carb ice cream.

Of course, I do realize that if you’re vegan, you aren’t going to like the addition of the gelation – but you can leave it out. I figured out a while back that gelatin is a lot similar to chia seeds and tapioca. It swells when it starts absorbing water that is nearby it. And that’s a good trait to have when you’re looking for a way to hold together the batters of different sugar free desserts recipes.

Gelatin should really be considered a superfood. It contains all the right substances for the joints, cartilage and bone to rebuild themselves. Whenever you have an injury, the tissues that were injured have to be rebuilt. And that’s where gelatin is pretty handy. When you get marrow bones from the grocery store and make soup out of them, you’ll see gelatin in the soup liquid.

In this recipe for sugar free desserts – the coconut flour soft chocolate chip cookies, there is a little bit of gelatin. It’s probably not enough to rebuild your joints because you need a higher dose for that – but it’s a small start.
