Ingredients
  • 2 ¼ cup white whole wheat flour OR 2 ¾ cup almond meal plus ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup granulated sugar or erythritol
  • ½ cup brown sugar OR ½ cup erythritol plus 1 teaspoon of molasses
  • ¼ cup melted butter or Earth Balance
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs or 1 tablespoon Ener-g egg replacer plus ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 ounce chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk (I love using my healthy homemade version)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 8x8 baking dish and set aside.
  2. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, cane sugar or erythritol, and the brown sugar or erythritol plus molasses into the bowl of stand mixer. Alternately, you can add the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir by hand. Nothing a little elbow grease can't solve. Using the paddle attachment, stir the dry ingredients on low speed. Add in the melted butter or Earth Balance, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, and eggs or egg replacer and continue to stir until combined but not overworked. The dough will be a bit crumbly, but that's okay. Just use your hands to squish it all together. If the dough is too dry, add in an extra tablespoon of almond milk and stir until the flour is completely incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chunks. Take half the dough and press it into the prepared baking pan. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cookie layer. Drop the remaining cookie dough on top of the condensed milk and carefully use your fingers to even it out. Bake in the oven at 350°F for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out without clinging (it might not be completely clean because of the condensed milk). Let cool for a few hours before cutting into bars. Thoroughly devour.
Notes
IMPORTANT: For a low carb version, use the almond meal/coconut flour option, erythritol, eggs, Simply Lite chocolate (or other low carb brand), and homemade healthy sweetened condensed milk. This is how I calculated the net carb count.
