Enjoy baking? Low-calorie cookies have landed
Low-calorie snacks are one thing, but low-calorie chocolate chip cookies that are also magically without the usual high carbs? What a sweet bit of news.
Chocolate chips, butter - the foods which you are used to being told to steer clear from, all made possible because you are using Lo-Dough as your biscuit alternative.
One Lo-Dough base will make you two delicious, slightly crunchy, slightly chewy cookies and each individual cookie is 123 calories and only 4.5 Carbs. That's half the calories of most equivalent shop-bought cookies and about a sixth of the carbs.
Did you know? You can freeze Lo-Dough
They also freeze really well, which is giving us another idea. As ever - eating our cookies will fill you up due to the fibre content, so you won't feel the need to keep repeat snacking.
