Can I offer you a Low Carb / Keto Cookie Biscuit !

Sometimes it is so enjoyable to sit down with a cup of tea or coffee and help yourself to a nice cookie biscuit, and even better if it's a low carb / keto one! Here are two recipe suggestions you may like.

Swedish Hazelnut Cookies/Biscuits
These crunchy keto cookies are incredibly quick and simple to bake. If you happen to be Swedish I bet your grandmother used to bake these for you when you were a child. It will surely bring back some sweet memories but without the sugar.

3½ oz. (100g) butter, softened
1⁄3 cup (75ml/ erythritol
1 egg yolk

The above recipes uses 'low carb flour' and if you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here

I am proud to say I am 3 weeks into Keto and still learning the ropes. I bought one of those mini waffle makes and what a God-send that is! Haven't made cookies yet but have made the 3 ingredient chocolate 'cake' in the cup. SOOOO good and satisfied my craving for something sweet. xo Diana
