Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies


Hello there my friends.

Lets talk cookies.

For me, a thick gooey cookie is where it's at.

Unless of course, it's a chips ahoy. Chips ahoy is life.

But...a healthier cookie? Is this possible?

Yes...and these are keto friendly!

These are super super easy! And only 3 carbs a cookie! wut.

And allllll the proof is in da puddin.

but freal.

puddin.

Used a packet of sugar & fat free pudding!

Being on this keto diet...it's hard to find sugar subs, I did do a trial run and used stevia but it was just not the same. The pudding brought all the richness to this cookie and just the right amount of sweetness!

I cooked them just under enough and let them cool and they were extremely fudgy! Almost as if it were a brownie!

And let me tell you - the dough is hard to resist. This maybe could have made 10 cookies but I couldn't help myself!!

The wet ingredients consist of almond butter and egg.

Almond butter though. I'm a HUGE peanut butter fan but when on a keto diet...almond butter is a better option. The only difference is $$$$$$

But totally worth it. I have about 5 jars of almond butter now. My favorite being coconut butter. MMMMMMMM it's FABULOUS.

I did just order some sunflower butter and i'm anxiously waiting to tear into it.
