Chocolate Chip Cookies with Almond Flour

My father has type 2 diabetes and I wanted to make something for him, something sweet. I know almond flour and oats are good for him, I bought some sugar free chocolate and I made these cookies. They freeze well so he can have dessert once in a while, he just needs to take one out from the freezer :-)
This is the Quaker oatmeal cookies recipe, modified for my dad.

½ cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
12 packets of Truvia or other sweetener equivalent of ½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1- ½ cups almond flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
2 sugar free chocolate bars, broken in small pieces
almonds to top the cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In large bowl, beat butter and Truvia on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well.
Add combined almond flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add oats and chocolate; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Top each cookie with 1 almond.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack.
Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
