  1. Tasty and keto! Not sure about the nutritional information though...
  2. Made last night, so simple. The sweetner I used was 1/3 Now brand Erythritol and 2/3 Betterleaf powdered Stevia, I dislike the cooling effect of Erythritol over slight bitterness of Stevia, first time I’ve split like that, read other recipes that suggested and it worked. I had neither effects from either one. Would like tad - Read more ...
  3. I used 1/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup cream cheese and 1/8 tsp almond extract and 3/4 tsp vanilla extract for as little more flavor
  4. I made these exactly as directed. I used Splenda no calorie artificial sweetener (the one that you use the equivalent amount to real sugar). If you like your cookies sweet, I suggest you use more than 1/2 cup. I don’t like things real sweet & I thought these were perfect. I did cook these for - Read more ...
  5. I made these as written. The sweetener I used was Organic Stevia Blend...a combination of Stevia and Erithrytol, the best sugars for a keto diet. These are very good after a night in the fridge.

  7. Substituted 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut and 1/4 cup of raisins. Best cookies ever!
  8. These cookies are quick and easy. They came out great, and have a light nutty cinnamon flavor! You can make them in any shape you want. I made little hearts. Shape them 1/2" to 3/4" thick for chewy cookie, or shape dough to about 1/4" thick for a crumbly cookie. I'm going to use these - Read more ...
  9. I made these delicious crispy cookies exactly according to the recipe except I baked them for 25 minutes in error and they still came out great! Maybe even better with the extra time? This is my new go to sweet treat while on a low carb keto diet.
