Hello Loves!! It’s been a month since we started the Keto lifestyle. I’ve had my days and thoughts of throwing in the towel has invaded my racing mind. I didn’t though! Yay me! But I gave myself a cheat day and cheated with carbs that were better for me. We haven’t had any kinds of treats since starting on August 5th, 2019. So this afternoon I baked up some delicious Chocolate Coconut Keto Cookies. These cookies are super easy to make and even my 19 yr. old son loves them. Caught him in the cookie jar twice 🙂
Chocolate Coconut Keto Cookies
I was a bit worried that these wouldn’t have the right texture, and not be tasty. I’ve made a couple of other Keto desserts and they weren’t a hit at all! Although the Hubby hasn’t tried these yet, I am almost sure they’ll be a hit with him too!
I am pretty sure my granddaughters will like them too! We shall see this afternoon when they arrive. Anyways, did I mention that these are super easy to make? Well, let me tell you! They mix up super quick and bake up just as deliciously quick too.
Chocolate Coconut Keto Cookies – Recipe
1 cup – Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips (I used Hershey’s) affordable @ Walmart
1 cup – Unsweetened Organic Coconut Flakes @ Walmart
3/4 cup – Salted Cocktail Peanuts or Almonds for even lower Carb
3 tbsp. – Monk Fruit Sweetener – found locally and affordable
1 tsp. – Vanilla
4 – Egg Yolks
1/4 Cup – Coconut Oil (solid form)
4 tbsp. – Butter (softened)
Preheat oven to 350F, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
In a large bowl stir coconut oil, butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, and egg yolks.
Mix in chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, spoon even heaps and place on a baking sheet.
Bake 12 – 14 minutes or until edges are a golden brown and crispy. Let cool for 5 minutes then place the cookies on a plate or in a cookie jar. I was able to make 20 cookies from the batch. The total carb count if you ate the whole batch of 20 cookies would be 13.74 carbs. Per cookie, it’s less than 1 carb.
** Please note ** while the cookies are baking they will release a lot of the oils. This is normal and happens because there isn’t any flour which would normally soak up the oils.
To my surprise, these turned out really good! I was extremely worried about the texture, but they remind me a little of a nutty granola bar. I am going to try one after dinner with some unsweetened almond milk. If you like this recipe, feel free to share it with your friends. Also, you might want to follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook I share a lot of stuff on them too.
