​​Variations and ​Ideas

​I like to add ground flax seed into my baked products. I like the texture and the extra fiber that it gives to the cookie.

If you don't like the taste or the texture, replace it with almond flour.

I like to use powdered sugar in most of my baking. I prefer the texture and my biscuits doesn't get grainy.

You can use granulated sugar if you prefer or you can blend granulated sugar in your blender until it is as fine as you want it.

​From a price point of view, it may be worth blending your own.

Generally there is not much of a price difference between the granular and the powdered sweeteners.

However, the granular sugar is obviously more popular and therefore can be bought in bigger bags. This makes them cheaper per ounce. 

For the icing sugar effect on top of the cookies, just blend some sugar finer.

​If you bake a lot, it may make sense to buy the bigger bags and then blend them yourself.

​Be careful not to over bake your cookies. Rather take them out and check and put them back into the oven if they are not done.

Especially when you make them smaller, be aware that they will need less cooking time.


​I always say this, but as we adapt to keto we may want less sweetness.

Different sugar alternatives may also taste different and could be more or less sweet.

Prefer a chewy chocolate chip cookie?

​Then, watch Kyndra from Peace, Love and Low Carb make her keto flourless chewy double chocolate chip cookies. 

These are double chocolate made with cocoa powder mixed into the cookie dough and then chocolate chips mixed in by hand.

They are also flourless, no almond or coconut flour.

She says that she takes them out of the oven at the 10 minute mark to flatten them a little making them chewy. Enjoy...

  1. Thank you for this recipe!! I love cookies and found these to be so satisfying. I only used 3/4 of a cup of Swerve icing sugar rather than a full cup and they were amazing.
