Before I get to my recipe, I'd like to thank Emma of Noodlechips for the amazing and thorough review of my cookbook! My KetoDiet Cookbook has been out the beginning of this year and Emma's review will guide you through it in detail.
These keto cookies are for everyone who likes to have a crispy treat with their coffee. They are quick, easy to make and freezable. One cookie contains 25% of your your daily magnesium requirement - a delicious way to beat keto-flu! :-)
I hope you enjoy my quick video recipes as much as we do creating them! All video recipes are available on my YouTube channel. As always, I wouldn't be able to make these videos without the patience of my partner Nikos, who helps me shoot them, and my good friend Gwyn who does all the amazing video editing!
Also, check out my other cookie recipes - all suitable for a ketogenic diet:

Ingredients (makes 12 cookies):
- Preheat the oven to 160 C / 320 F. Place the almond butter, eggs, unsweetened cacao powder, ...
- ... powdered Erythritol, and salt into a food processor. You can also use your hands or a spatula to mix the dough.
- Process until well combined.
- Using your hands, create 12 equal cookie dough balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a non-stick silicon baking mat. Using a fork, press down to flatten each cookie ball until about ½-inch (1 cm) thick.
- Place in the oven and bake for about 12 minutes or until crisped up. When done, remove from the oven and let them cool down before serving. Store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for longer.
I made two batches when creating this recipe. The first batch (left side below) was made with one egg and slightly less almond butter. I loved the strong chocolate taste but the cookies were way too fragile and crumbly. For the second batch, I used one more egg. The cookies (right side below) were not as sweet but the texture was better - crispy and slightly chewy.
