Chewy Keto Almond Cookie Recipe
I created this chewy keto almond cookie recipe last week before I went to a friends party. They are kind of plain but sometimes that is all you want or need. I used blanched almond flour for this recipe. It was nice to have a cookie at the party that was gluten free when all the other options had flour. I always recommend bringing your own dish to any party so there is at least one thing you can eat to avoid feeling deprived. If you don’t plan to succeed chances are you will fall into temptation or make yourself sick by eating something at the party that is not aligned with your health goals. I don’t really believe in all the hype around flax being a super food but I love the way it gives texture to Paleo baked goods.

I am surprised to see sugar as part of a paleo recipe, even if it’s optional. A better choice might be powdered erythritol or powdered xylitol. Evaporated Cane Juice IS sugar (organic or not)… JM2cents.

So is honey. Sugar is sugar. I gave a stevia option. The sugar is purely decorative.
They look delicious 🙂 I’m going to try this next time I’m baking.
