These Keto Chocolate Chip Pecan and Coconut Cookies are any low carb cookie lover's dream! They have the classic look and taste of your favorite homemade cookie, all with only 2.4g net carbs per cookie!
I love cookies. And I can bet you do too! They're the perfect treat, and when you're focusing on macro counting and portions, cookies are a lot easier to control, at least for me, than something like cake or brownies.
These completely delicious keto cookies use almond butter as a base. Almond butter is one of my favorite ingredients for ketogenic baking. It's generally a lot more macro friendly than peanut butter, and its consistency makes for a really easy batter!
It's super important to check your labels when shopping for almond butter, or any nut butter for that matter, because some brands sneak in sugar and other ingredients to add flavor. When you buy almond butter you want a maximum of two ingredients: almonds and salt.
I only use Member's Mark Almond Butter, which I find at Sam's Club. It's absolutely delicious, very affordable, and only 16g net carbs for 1 cup of it. When dealing with such large quantities of ingredients for a recipe like this, that's an excellent amount of carbs for the base.
Keto Chocolate Chip Pecan and Coconut Cookies
These cookies have a texture similar to Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, which is probably my favorite thing about them. That was my favorite kind of cookie before I started my low carb lifestyle.
Baking keto cookies can be tough because they tend to either come out very crumbly or dry. I can proudly say that the texture on these is mouthwateringly perfect!
