I love all about making these low carb cookies. They are so quick to make, and I make them quite often when having folks over. Most of them have no idea it’s sugar-free and low carb stuff, and they keep complimenting on them.
To prepare the recipe, I usually don’t have to run to the grocery store, since butter is always there, and any flour plus any ground nuts will do. Need another reason?
Below, you can see the ingredients for the low carb cookies I usually use to keep them as keto-friendly as possible. December being just around the corner, I’ll be making batches of these, adding all those Christmas spices. I am so looking forward to that! Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, ginger, orange zest … and what not. Juts typing this list makes me drool a bit.
Anyhow, you can choose your own ingredients! For example, instead of macadamia, feel free to use any other type of ground nuts. A mixture of almonds and hazelnuts if you wish. Then, add any kind of flour. It doesn’t even have to be low carb; Gluten-free flour blends for baking work perfectly in this recipe. Moreover, make the recipe dairy-free by using coconut butter!
Yes, I’ve tried this recipe with various ingredients. Even hemp seed flour and finely ground chia seeds. Some of the flours tend to be less sweet than coconut flour, or even a little bitterish. In that case, I add a little bit of stevia to the mixture.
Be somehow careful when adding flour to the butter mixture since some flours can be less absorbing than others. This means that you will either have to use an extra tablespoon of flour or a couple of tablespoons less than what the recipe calls for.
Christmas time is approaching too fast, and baking these will fill up your place with that incredibly cozy holiday odor that brings out the sweetest childhood memories! Mmmmm …
