Remember when we mentioned our weekend highlight? Well, today we are sharing that recipe with you.

After making our first nut butter bread with our chocolate pistachio protein bread followed by our paleo almond butter bread we’ve been wanting to create another flavor. And chocolate chip came to mind. Well… chocolate chip cookie bread!

Because who doesn’t love any excuse to eat more chocolate chips?

We love COOKIE DOUGH recipes.

We both love love love Enjoy life chocolate chips. One thing we sometimes do is pour out a shot glass worth and eat it as a little chocolate treat. Anyone else sneak in bites of chocolate chips? Don’t be shy. We won’t judge you :)  Actually our second oldest sister got us doing that as that is how she likes to enjoy her chocolate chips. It’s pretty much the same thing as having a nice piece of dark chocolate. Although, there’s something about eating the cute little chips that make it such a fun experience.

Now you might be thinking low-carb?

We’ve never labeled any of our recipes as low-carb even though some of them could be. But today we are saying this bread is low-carb to help those that might be interested in low-carb recipes. Although, you don’t have to eat low-carb to enjoy this amazing bread.

We eat a semi low-carb diet. Don’t get us wrong we still eat carbs like rice, plantains, potatoes, honey, maple syrup, and fresh fruit but they just aren’t the main highlight of our daily diet. We have figured out over the years that our bodies like fats for energy.

The first time we made this recipe we used cashews, which turned out amazing. The second time we used macadamia nuts. Why did we use macadamia nuts?  They are considered to be lower in carbs.  Plus we really like them, just wish they were not so expensive.

This bread is full of healthy fats, protein and some carbs! Just what we like.

As you can see from the video the bread came out perfectly!! Easy to make too thank goodness for vitamix blenders! You can make anything in a blender.

This bread is so soft and moist, full of flavor and will just set your taste buds on a frenzy. One bite and you will be sold.

Gary kept saying how good the bread was which brought a huge smile to our faces. This bread did not last long in this house (only lasted 3 days)  and we know it will become an instant family favorite in your house!

Enjoy this bread warm or chilled. Perfect to enjoy with coffee or tea.

Or as a sweet treat for dessert…or whenever you need something to get you through a rough day.

For chocolate chips that are low in sugar and carbs we like Lily’s chocolate chips.

Substitution ideas:

Use any nut or seed butter for the 1 cup of macadamia nuts.

Use any liquid sweetener of choice to replace maple syrup.

If you want it even lower in carbs you can try doing some stevia and doing 2 tablespoons water or coconut milk for the maple.

Use raw cacao nibs or carob chips instead of chocolate chips.

We did not want this bread to be overly sweet so we only did 2 tablespoons of maple syrup for a little touch of sweetness. We find the chocolate chips to add enough sweetness.

    This looks delicious. Just want to clarify though… we can use 1 cup premade nut butter, if we want, instead of grinding our own, right? Thanks.

    Chocolate chips as a snack is what I’m known for.. I add it to all my trail mix pretty much and eat it with pretzels for a lazy version of chocolate covered preztel :) I can’t wait to make this!!!

    Just made this with the intention of having something for out of town guests to nibble on this weekend. Outlook for any remaining by tomorrow is bad. I’m off for seconds..this is incredible!

    This looks delicious! Do you think I could substitute some of the whole eggs with eggs whites? Maybe 2 or 3 whole eggs and 3 whites?
    Thank you so much!!!
    Much love,

    YUM! But, I have a question re: healthy fats. I’ve read that its important to buy nuts that are not roasted or heated because that will ruin the fat content and make it unhealthy, almost like a trans fat. And its important to eat raw nuts, soaked if possible, to keep the fats healthy. But, if one uses nuts in baking, doesn’t that turn the fat content into something unhealthy for the body? Confused !!!

      Bar yep there is always a pro and con to everything. This argument about baking and cooking nuts could be made for most foods. It’s a hard battle. We believe in balance, not over doing. It’s a treat so it is about enjoying them in moderation. This is a personal preference. We always try to soak our nuts even if we are going to bake them. We do have unsoaked nuts sometimes. Listen to your body and do what is best for you.

    I”ve been on a mission to find grain free, low sugar recipes for my diet, and this looked absolutely wonderful! My loaf is in the oven now, but I’m finding I had to lower the tempurature and cook it longer. So far it’s over 30 minutes, and VERY liquidy in the center. I used almond milk and stevia instead of the maple syrup, and almond butter, so I’m not sure why mine is taking so much longer.
