Were you a fan of Almond Joy bars as a kid? I mean with that delicious chocolate coating and the chewy sweet coconut centre…
Well, I sure was. I've always been a fan of anything almond and coconut.. actually one of my favourite low-carb protein bars is the Almond Coconut Built Bar (see my previous post for a full review of Built Bars!)
I've always loved almond croissants, coconut macaroons, coconut milk, almond milk… you name it.
That's why when I considered the fact that ALMOND and COCONUT FLOUR are two of the most popular ingredients in keto baking… WHY HADN'T I THOUGHT OF AN ALMOND JOY COOKIE YET?
Oh man guys, I have been waiting so long to tell you about these cookies and OFFICIALLY release them for sale at kickkookies.com ! I honestly am having a hard time containing my excitement right now.
It's been rough considering I'm someone who cannot wait to blab about their next big thing, haha.
These cookies are my baby, my pride and joy, the holy grail of MouthwateringMotivation.
They are not your average keto cookie. They are soft, chewy, moist and NOT crumbly OR dry at all. I went through 3 different sweeteners to find one that you guys would approve of and I thought tasted best! I also tested different baking times and altered a few ingredients to ultimately end up with the perfect soft cookie texture.
These cookies are designed to be your best friend on keto. They are only 1.5 NET carbs per servings and <1g of sugar! They are are also packed with protein and fibre.
If you guys have tried my recipes before, you know I do things next-level here. My keto baked goods are typically very close to the original carb-filled version because I believe if there's a will there's a way! Keto desserts CAN taste amazing! And that's exactly why I created these cookies.
I want to share my *slight obsession with the world.
I feel like these keto candy cane shortbread cookies don't need much explanation. If you've ever seen a tray of Christmas cookies..at least in my family, these are usually ALWAY in the mix.
I love the look and taste of these cute cookies. These are honestly probably the BEST keto shortbread cookies I've made to date (and let me tell you, I've made a lot). They are a little more tedious to put together but they are so worth the effort! (Although, if you are feeling lazy, these also make a great shortbread base to standard cookies as well!)

This time it's starting to feel more appropriate, considering today we received our first snowfall of the year!
