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?
In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat together 2 tbsp butter, egg, sweeteners, vitafiber and vanilla for 2min.
In a separate bowl, microwave your chocolate-chips and the 1 tsp of butter in 30s increments until melted.
Beat the melted chocolate into your egg/butter mixture until smooth.
Stir in the rest of the dry ingredients just until combined and then fold in the pecans and the final tbsp of chocolate-chips.
Place your batter in the freezer for 7-8min and preheat your oven to 350*.
Spray or grease a large baking sheet with oil.
Drop the batter by heaping tbsp’s onto the cookie sheet.
Lightly flatten each with the back of an oiled spoon.
Bake for 8-10min. (The should still be a bit soft when they come out! Do not over-bake)
Let the cookies sit on the tray to cool for 10-15 min before moving onto a wire rack.
Enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container on the counter or in the freezer for a quick snack later on!
*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.Links to ingredients I used:
In a large bowl, combine your flours, vital wheat gluten(or xanthan gum), baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, beat together your butter, sweeteners, vanilla extract and molasses until light and fluffy.
Add your eggs and beat again until combined.
Pour your wet mixture into the dry and stir to until a thick dough forms.
Fold in your chocolate-chips and then place the dough in the refrigerator for 15-20min.
Spray/grease a baking sheet with oil.
Begin rolling your dough into balls (I ended up with 15) and space them evenly apart on the baking sheet.
Flatten each one slightly with the back of a spoon and place in the oven.
Bake for 8-9min or until the cookies are JUST set and the bottoms lightly browned. (They will continue baking on the cookie sheet afterwards. You can cook longer if you don’t like the slightly under-cooked middle…(that’s favourite part, haha)).
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 15min or so before removing and placing on a plate.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for a quick snack in the future! Enjoy!
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.
Fall is coming!! This means…apples, cinnamon, warm cozy sweaters, children in cute Halloween attire, changing leaves and last but certainly not least..the beginning of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.
Being on a keto diet does not mean you have to miss out on these trends. With these 20 delicious, decadent fall dessert recipes..you are bound to wow yourself and others (even those non-keto family members who refuse anything without a half a cup of sugar thrown into it, haha).
These are some hand-picked recipes including some of my own favourite creations along with those from several of my favourite keto blogs. I hope you enjoy them all as much as I do!
