Keto Cookies = Happiness February 07 2018, 0 Comments
Is "Cookieness" a word? It should be. The happiness one derives from making and eating (snarfing down?) cookies. Cookieness. You're welcome. I frequently follow a way of eating that loosely looks like a lazy Keto or a paleo style diet. I don't care much about the terms, and each has legions of lovers and haters. Suffice it to say, drastically reducing simple carbs has its merits if it's done mindfully. A stricter version of Keto would not include these nummy treats, but if you're not currently aiming for the low end (20 grams of carbs per day) but if low carb is 30-50 grams for you, these can fit! Sadly, all my go to cookie recipes are a NO GO. Happily, I found scads of interesting ways to put together a tasty cookie on Pinterest. OH HOW I LOVE PINTEREST, Click if you'd like to visit my Keto Resources board. The Chocolate Chip Cookie with coconut flour is a perfect recipe for modifying, which is cool, because I seldom follow anything to the letter, and I eyeball ingredients. This will be an estimate on what I did to get the Double Chocolate Cookie of. My. Dreams.
*You can totally increase the amount of butter for the chocolate version instead of using coconut oil I just really like the taste of both. You just need the additional fat / liquid in order to hold the dry ingredients nicely together.

Raw cookies shaped and ready to go in the oven. Unlike regular cookies, these will not spread, so you get the size and shape you put on the pan. If you are making smaller cookies, like I did here, reduce the baking time by a minute or two.
Finished cookies look a lot like the raw ones, and are just as delicious.
