A few months back I received a 2 carb per serving low carb snickerdoodle cookie mix from my monthly subscription to KetoKrate where they deliver to my door keto friendly snacks. Since I don't have much of a sweet tooth they've resided in my pantry - that is, until now. With all of the many Valentine's day candies being displayed at every corner, my sweet tooth emerged from the dark abyss where I like to keep it and motivated me to finally make these Ketogenic approved cookies.
They are a mix from the company Gooddee's and they also have a brownie and chocolate chip mix. If this Snickerdoodle cookie passes my taste buds approval I will try out the other flavors. The ingredients in the mix are cinnamon, milled sunflower seeds, cream of tartor, baking powder; Stevia extract, Tapioca Starch, etc.
The recipe is incredibly easy to master the first try.
- One egg
- 1/3 Cup unsalted butter or Coconut Oil ( I used Coconut Oil)
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
- Entire contents of cookie mix
- Parchment paper
- Oven (Tee hee)
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir thoroughly using a spoon.
Scoop 2 Tablespoons of cookie mix onto parchment paper leaving 1" spaces with enough room for 12 cookies. My batch only gave me 9 cookies so I believe the 12-count is just an approximation.
Place into oven for 11-13 minutes - I met it in the minute and set my timer for 12-minutes.
Cookies weren't quite ready as the directions ask for golden edges so I placed them back into the oven for an additional 5 minutes - the package even states that ovens may vary the cooking time, so eyeball it near the end.
They will look undercooked and feel soft - They will harden once cooled.
Allow the cookies to cool down or they will fall apart. Again, when you first take the cookies out they will look like they aren't finished cooking and soft to the touch, but they will harden.
How Do These Low Carb Cookies Taste?
Once I waited for the cookies to cool and harden I tried my first bite while it still had that fresh from the oven warmth to it. It was incredibly good. The right amount of cinnamon and the right amount of ... I ate a second cookie to make sure that my taste buds were being accurate in their assessment. Yeah, they are delicious cookies and not just a yummy for being a low carb cookie alternative but actually ketolicious. I gave my two youngest kids a cookie ages 23 months to 5 and it was met with smiling faces.
Here are some close ups of the final product.
I'm eager to try their brownie and chocolate chip cookie mixes.
