5. Fold in the dark chocolate chips and any optional ingredients you choose, such as chopped nuts or dried fruit.
6. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten each cookie with the back of a spoon.
7. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.
8. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for a few minutes, before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
9. Once cooled, the low-sugar, dairy-free, and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are ready to be savored.
