Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine coconut, almond meal, coconut oil, egg white, water, vanilla extract, Himalayan sea salt, and stevia powder in a large bowl. Let sit until coconut softens, about 10 minutes. Roll into generous tablespoon-sized balls; place on baking sheet. Flatten gently with a fork to prevent edges from crumbling.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • For the stevia, I used 10 of the scoops provided in the container for a very lightly sweetened cookie. For a sweeter cookie (with added carbs), add a few tablespoons of organic maple syrup and cut back on the coconut oil.
  • These will not spread in the oven so the size you see is the size of the cookie.

I made these and the cookies come out tasting like biscuits. It needs more than 1/3tsp sweetener. Maybe 1/3 cup

These are delish. I used the whole egg though. I think that butter would taste great in them too. I also used 1 tbl of monk fruit sweetener.

Based on the other 3 reviews I made the following changes: 1/4 tsp of salt 3 packets of Truvia They were really tasty!! A little sweet, not too greasy or salty. Yum!!

I made it with 2 tablespoons organic maple syrup instead of stevia, otherwise followed the directions as is. I mixed the wet ingredients separate from the dry first. I used a small cookie sco...

Made these today, WAAAAAAY too much salt. Next time I will use between a pinch and 1/4 tsp. Also used about 1 tsp. stevia in the raw, could have used more. I think I will reduce the coconut o...

These were pretty nasty. Just salty, greasy and bland. I made it exactly by the recipe. I’m kind of coming to terms with the fact that nothing keto will ever resemble an honest-to-god bakes good...

These are very bland. I saw others who swapped out the coconut oil with butter, maybe that would help. Other spices should tried to make this better
