I love (really love!!) that I am able to incorporate baked goods into my ketogenic lifestyle. This makes me incredibly happy. I’m an ok cook but an enthusiastic baker. I’m not incredibly talented or anything, I just enjoy it. The warmth of the oven, the aroma wafting through the house, tasting warm and gooey creations… it make me happy.
If you’re into cookie dough, this is one recipe where the dough is almost better than the finished product. I might have helped myself to a few bites…and this recipe may have been my dinner last night. 😉
I didn’t want my recipe to be too dry (as recipes with almond flour can be) so I reduced the “flour” down to 2 1/2 cups and did equal parts almond and coconut flour. I also added almond and vanilla extract.
For my chocolate I chopped up a 90% dark chocolate bar.
I also found that I had to “nuke” my butter and coconut oil. They said room temp, but my room temp is a bit too chilly for coconut oil to blend.
The end result was delicious. Still a bit dry so have a cup of steaming coffee or cold milk to wash these down. The texture is a bit more biscuit than cookie, but the taste is pretty close. This is a more sophisticated, grown up cookie. Just sweet enough to be a treat, minus the guilt. Your kids won’t steal them. Win-win.
