Did you know that a regular Crumbl cookie can have up to 600 calories? 😱 That’s almost a third of the recommended daily intake for an average adult! But don’t worry, you don’t have to give up your favorite treat just because you’re watching your weight. We’ve got you covered with a fantastic recipe for low calorie Crumbl cookies that will satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt. Let’s dive into the delicious world of guilt-free cookie indulgence! πŸͺ

The secret to making low calorie Crumbl cookies lies in the ingredients. We recommend using a sugar substitute like erythritol or Stevia. These sweeteners are natural, have zero calories, and won’t spike your blood sugar levels. 😊 Plus, you won’t even notice the difference in taste!

When it comes to flour, opt for whole wheat or almond flour instead of all-purpose flour. Not only do these alternatives have fewer calories, but they also provide extra nutrients and fiber, keeping you fuller for longer. πŸ’ͺ

Here’s what you’ll need for the low calorie Crumbl cookies:

  • 20 sugar-free sandwich cookies (resembling Oreos, with chocolate wafers and white filling) 🍫
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol or Stevia
  • 1 ΒΌ cups whole wheat or almond flour
  • Β½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ΒΌ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg πŸ₯š
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar-free chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips (70% cocoa)

For the frosting:

  • 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup of powdered erythritol or Stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Follow these steps to make your guilt-free Crumbl cookies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325Β°F (160Β°C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. πŸ“
  2. Separate the sandwich cookies and scrape off the filling. Save the filling for another use or discard it. You’ll only need the wafers for this recipe.
  3. Crush the wafers in a food processor or in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin. You want them to be finely ground, but not too powdery. πŸ’₯
  4. Transfer the crushed wafers to a medium bowl and add the melted butter and granulated erythritol or Stevia. Mix well until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  5. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set it aside for now. πŸ₯£
  6. In a third bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the softened butter and sugar substitute until it’s light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix until everything is well combined. πŸ₯„
  7. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix! Then, fold in the chocolate chips. 🍫
  8. Scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the lined baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball slightly with your palm. πŸ–οΈ
  9. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are slightly firm to the touch. Let them cool completely on the baking sheets before removing them. ⏲️
  10. To make the frosting, beat the cream cheese, softened butter, powdered erythritol or Stevia, and vanilla extract in a small bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. 🍰
  11. Assemble the cookies by spreading about a teaspoon of frosting on the bottom of one cookie and sandwiching it with another cookie.
  12. Repeat with the remaining cookies and frosting. πŸ˜‹

Enjoy your low calorie Crumbl cookies! They are soft, chewy, and delicious, just like the original ones, but with only a fraction of the calories. You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. πŸͺ❀️
