Keto Cookies, Oh My!

Eat the fat: the healthy oils from nuts, grass-fed butter, and say so long to massive carbs!

Use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, but sub in almond flour instead of wheat flour, and a sweetener like xylitol (do NOT let your dogs eat this) or stevia instead of sugar. Kerrygold butter is made from cows that eat grass and provides the proper mix of omega 3s and 6s. If you’re using nuts and want to make them more digestible, you can soak them overnight first, then roast on low heat, or you can simply roast them in a pan with butter. Not too high of heat, though, as that can create some toxins. Use sea salt for extra micronutrients. And dark chocolate, the darker the better on a ketogenic diet. I buy mine at Aldi. Fewer carbs, more protein.

This cookie dough works as cookie bars or as individual cookies. It’s more of a soft cookie, but it holds together just fine. Are you a dipper? Pour a glass of unsweetened almond or coconut milk or dip in cream. Regular milk is loaded with sugar so check your labels. Santa will love you for a low-carb cookie that won’t zap his energy with a sugar crash.

Voila! Eat the fat and enjoy!

If you’re new to Keto, this is the KetoBook  that got me started, the Blender that makes these recipes possible, and the basics to stocking your keto kitchen. So glad you stopped by! Please poke around the blog…I keep it ad-free so that you can read uninterrupted. You will see links to products I like, and if you choose to buy them, you will pay NO additional costs but I will earn a small commission. Thank you!
