Food Friday: Low Carb Macadamia Nut Thumb Cookies
these are by far, the closet to tasting like a traditional cookie that i’ve made to date. the recipe is simple and can be customized further as well, for example, by adding other nuts, flavored liquid stevia or low carb chocolate chips. the following recipe makes 15 cookies, with each cookie being just under 100 calories, 1.4 net carbs, 9.25 grams of fat and 3.5 grams of protein.
you will need:
one cup blanched almond flour
1/3 cup vanilla whey protein powder
three packets of powdered stevia (about a tablespoon)
1/4 cup erythritol or xylitol
six tablespoons grassfed butter
five - 10 diced roasted macadamia nuts
preheat oven to 300 and line a cookie tray with parchment paper
combine ingredients well (ideally in a food processor)
separate into 15 balls, flatten each with your thumb
cook for five - seven minutes until you notice bottoms brown. the key is not letting them cook to much to keep the inside chewy and the outside crunchy.
allow to cook, add sliced almonds or eyrthritol to the top. enjoy!
