Just because you’re on a keto diet, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the world's best treat- cookies! With this keto friendly coconut cookies recipe, you and your family can still enjoy the delicious flavour of cookies without the high amounts of sugar they normally contain. Here are the ingredients you will need:
- Coconut flour
- butter (24g)
- 90% cocoa dark chocolate (2 squares)
- Egg (1)
- Almond milk (100ml)
- Vanilla extract (1tsp)
- Stevia sweetener (optional)
Begin by preheating your oven to gas mark 4. While your oven is heating, it's time to measure out your ingredients. Measure out each ingredient and finely cut your two squares of chocolate.
Mix your flour and butter in a bowl, followed by your egg, milk and vanilla extract to combine your cookie dough together. You can also add your dark chocolate into the mix. Begin moulding your mix into cookie shapes and place them into the oven.
Compared to normal cookies, keto friendly coconut cookies have a crumbly texture which may be different to some. They may also be slightly drier than other cookies, which is why they should always be accompanied by a nice cup of tea! As a whole, we had a mixed experience creating these cookies.
The process itself was extremely fun and different to normal baking. I personally wasn’t the biggest fan of the end result, although I put this down to them being very different to what I’m used to. Sadie on the other hand really liked the cookies, which shows they’re all down to personal preferences.
Let us know what you think of this recipe and your experience of making these cookies (maybe you’re a much better baker than we are and ended up with a delicious result!. We look forward to hearing about your experience with this recipe!
