I’m not personally falling a low-carb diet ( I probably should)! However, I made these for a friend of mine who is on the Keto diet right now. These low carb cookies are pretty amazing, even if you aren’t dieting. I mean there isn’t anything wrong with eating a bit healthier now and then.
The best part is these Keto cookies are so dang easy to make! I whipped them up in no time at all.
Not a strawberry fan? Not a problem, just switch out the fruit. You can use blueberries, cranberries, or anything else you want.
Low Carb Cookies
To make these yummy Keto cookies, you’ll need the following ingredients.
- Chopped fresh strawberries
- Fresh lemon juice
- Softened butter
- Keto friendly sugar substitute
- Cream cheese, softened
- Egg white
- Pure vanilla extract
- Coconut or almond flour
Can you freeze these cookies?
I suggest doubling the dough and freezing the dough. You can even scoop out the cookies into balls, flash freeze them and then put them into a baggie. Doing this makes it easy to only bake a couple at a time.
What’s a Keto friendly sugar substitute?
I personally suggest Stevia but you can use any sugar substitute you’d like. You can use regular sugar if you’d like but then they wouldn’t be low carb cookies.
Would banana’s work in this recipe?
I haven’t tried it, so I’m going to say no. However, any kind of berries would be amazing!
