Almond cookies (keto)

2019-09-08 15:24

Alright, let's start this blog off softly with a recipe for almond cookies. This one is particularly worth a look if you're on a ketogenic diet since vitamin e is one of those elusive targets that can be tricky to meet day to day. It requires you to either eat bizarre amounts of olives, chug olive oil or blow a large chunk of your carbs on sunflower seeds. This recipe allows you to meet your daily intake with a single cookie, and they're absurdly tasty to boot.

(1 cookies from a batch of 10)
7g protein, 2.6g net carbs, 25g fat, 265kcal
50% of daily intake of vitamin e, a slew of minerals

300g almond flour
95g of erythritol (sötströ for swedes)
1g of salt
2tsp of liquid vanilla extract
120g of butter
1 large'ish egg.

  1. Set your oven to 150c.
  2. Pour flour, erythritol and salt into a bowl, mix well.
  3. Microwave butter until just melted. Add butter and vanilla extract into bowl. Mix until butter has cooled off.
  4. Add egg. Mix well until a sort of paste forms, I usually use a fork to mix. It takes a couple of minutes.
  5. Divide batch into 5-12 cookies. Put on baking paper, bake in oven for 25-35 minutes. You want the edges to get brown'ish.
  6. Allow to cool before attempt to remove from paper. Store in air tight container. Due to the high fat content they will be good for over a week with ease.
