I was so excited to see that Lily’s, the brand that makes my favorite sugar free chocolate chips, came out with butterscotch chips, & let me tell you… these butterscotch chips taste like the real thing! They’re my hubby’s favorite cookie! He said they’re buttery with a rich brown sugar flavor that are nostalgic of childhood. Chocolate chip cookies are classic & always good but it’s definitely fun to change up your cookie flavor! When I was baking them I had each of my kiddos come in one at a time & say: “It smells so good in here, what are you making?” The house really did smell divine. My kiddos have been gobbling them up, so I had to hide them ๐Ÿ˜‰ When baked, the butterscotch chips turn into an ooey-gooey caramel-like substance. The best part is you can eat these delightful cookies & stay on plan!

Cream Together:

  • 1 c. softened butter
  • 1/2 c. + 1 T. Gentle sweet
  • 3/4 c. Brown Sugar substitute I love the Pyure brand


  • 1 c. almond flour
  • 1 c. baking blend
  • 1/2 c. oat fiber
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3/4 t. xantham or gluccie
  • 11/2 c. Lily's butterscotch chips


  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. molasses
  • 2 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Cream together the butter & sweeteners
  • Add in the wet ingredients
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, including the butterscotch chips (they will be more evenly distributed among the cookies if you do this)
  • After the dry ingredients are combined, mix with the wet ingredients
  • Spray cookie sheet with non-stick olive oil or coconut spray
  • Scoop cookie batter onto baking sheet with a small cookie scooper or use a spoon to scoop 1 T. of batter onto the sheet
  • Flatten cookies with the palm of your hand
  • Bake for 5 minutes & scoop batter onto a 2nd pan while cooking the 1st
  • Turn the 1st pan of cookies around & bake for an additional 4 minutes with the 2nd pan of cookies
  • Cook the 2nd pan of cookies for 5 additional minutes
  • Repeat this process until the batter is gone
  • Let cool on pan for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack


Note: the butterscotch chips take on a caramel texture once baked & they will stick to your spatula so you have to clean it in between ๐Ÿ™‚
