MAN. These cookies are good. keto chocolate chip cookies

I originally made keto chocolate chip cookies a few years back (you can find the recipe here) and those were GREAT.

But that recipe was more of a crispier cookie that spread more..

I hadn’t quite got the texture right yet and was still playing around with the type and ratio of low-carb flour I used.

BUT THESE ONES. I feel like I have finally opened the gates to chocolate heaven. Continue reading “Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies”

KETO NANAIMO CHEESECAKE SQUARES

I’m so happy to share these with you guys! They turned out so much better than I expected!

I always had the idea in the back of my mind to create a cheesecake of some sort with the crust and topping of a Nanaimo bar but never got around to it…that is, until I realized I had a bar of cream cheese I really needed to use up!

I am SO GLAD I decided to finally go for it. These are delicious and look awesome when cut into small squares. The filling is slightly different than a standard cheesecake because we use a bit of heavy cream and xanthan gum to give it a Nanaimo bar custard-like texture.

These are honestly so tasty I had to stop myself at 3 pieces..as I’m sure I could have continued. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these keto nanaimo cheesecake squares as much as I did!! Continue reading “Keto Nanaimo Cheesecake Squares”

I hope you enjoy!  Continue reading “Keto Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Muffins”

These may be ARE the best keto cookie I have made to date (and I’ve made A LOT). Keto Brownie Cookies take the win!

Chocolatey, rich, fudgey and delicious. The combo of a brownie and a cookie creates perfection.

This don’t take long to make and are so worth the process. If you have a nagging chocolate craving, make these cookies now and you won’t be disappointed!

The special ingredient that gives these cookies their ultra soft, gooey, chewy texture is Vitafiber Syrup.

This is a low-carb, high fibre substitute, great for replacing corn syrup and maple syrup in recipes. It’s also a perfect addition to cookies, no-bake bars and candies.

You can find Vitafiber and many additional delicious recipes including it here:  Vitafiber IMO Website

Tips For Making Keto Brownie Cookies

  • You can use 1 sweetener for the entire recipe, just take into account that truvia is 3x sweeter than regular sugar so you’ll need 3x the amount for a typical sweetener like erythritol or splenda. 
  • You can choose to use unsweetened baker’s chocolate instead of the chocolate-chips mentioned, just be sure to add a bit of extra sweetener to the recipe.

Keto Brownie Cookies Ingredients

  • Almond – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally)  for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Splenda & Truvia – Since I’ve re-made this recipe many times, I’ve switched over to using a monkfruit/erythritol blend instead of splenda and truvia. The reason being.. It’s much more keto-friendly in terms of it’s effect on insulin levels and it probably has the closest taste to real sugar! I highly recommend trying it out. I use this blend from SoNourished.
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the cookies a chewier texture.
  • Blackstrap Molasses – This is optional, it adds a brown sugar flavour to recipes very minimal carbs! I only use 1 tsp and it adds a ton of flavour. I highly recommend it but if you’d like to leave it out you can..OR you can alternatively replace half the sweetener in this recipe with Sukrin Brown Sugar Sweetener.

Tools I Used to Make Keto Brownie Cookies

Fried Keto Cookie Dough Ball

Fried Keto Cookie Dough Ball

DSC_0733DSC_0740DSC_0761

I’m not really sure what sparked my interest in frying things ..maybe it was this gigantic container of coconut oil I just purchased. But who knows…

This is the second keto-dough I’ve tried frying(okay actually the third but the 2nd attempt was a complete failure so we don’t need to discuss that, lol).

This dough uses a combination of coconut flour and almond flour where-as my first original dough uses almond flour only.

In all honestly I did prefer the all almond flour dough just slightly more, taste-wise but that’s only because I’m not a huge fan of the coconut flour’s flavour to begin with.

I do have to say though, the coconut flour version may fry a bit better and did seem to be a less crumbly more cookie-like textured dough.

So with that said, I will link the original dough in this post along with the one I made today so you can decide which you prefer (or which you have the correct ingredients for!).

I wasn’t going to post this as a recipe, it was more just me messing around but I really did enjoy the dough and it was SO extremely filling. I think it’s a great sweet-tooth killer that’s actually good for you!

I recommend dipping it in my cream cheese frosting listed below as that was literally the icing on the cake.

I also fried a few small ones with cream cheese inside and then rolled them in cinnamon sugar in another attempt so you definitely can get creative with this recipe.

Ingredients (Serves 3):         

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp vital wheat gluten (optional, helps with texture-use an extra tbsp of almond flour if not using)
  • 1 tbsp splenda
  • 1/2 tbsp truvia

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1/2 tbsp butter, melted

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • pinch of cinnamon(optional)

  • 3 tbsp(45g) mini or regular sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Krisda typically)
  • Coconut oil for frying (roughly 6 cups or enough to just about cover the dough ball) *I bought this container. You can re-use the oil as well.

Optional Cream Cheese Frosting:

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Stir in your beaten egg, melted butter and vanilla until thick dough starts to form,
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Form the dough with your hands, combining the ingredients and forming a ball.
  5. Place the ball in the fridge while you heat your oil on high, in a large frying pan.
  6. Using a thermometer, heat your oil until 375* is reached, then fry your dough (turn down the oil or remove from heat so it does not go into the 400* range when frying).
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge and form it into 3 balls.
  8. Using a large (preferably)round spatula place the dough balls gently into the oil.
  9. Fry for roughly 1-2 minutes (more or less depending on how cooked you want the inside to be).
  10. Rotate it a few times in the oil before removing and setting on a piece of paper towel to drain.
  11. Optional: Combine the frosting ingredients and use as a dip to serve for cookie dough ball with! (SO GOOD). Enjoy!
