Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

August 27, 2017

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.

And here - you have the breakdown.
