This is a slightly sweet cookie with a texture that reminds me of a pecan sandy. It is a perfect dessert for those on a low-carb or keto diet. For best taste, refrigerate before serving.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Being on a low carb diet and being a cookie fiend is a tough gig. When I saw this recipe I was stoked after reading the reviews I changed a few things I added extra stevia 1 /4 cup and swapped the coconut oil for melted butter I cut the salt to a 1/4 teaspoon and sprinkled cinnamon on top. I needed a fix in the worse way and this did the trick! It is also a bonus that my husband hates coconut these babies are all mine! Read More

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

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. Read More

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 scooper to make them uniformed in size and shape. This produced just over two dozen silver dollar sized cookies. 12 minutes left them golden brown at the edges and they held together fairly well after cooling. A bit fragile but very tasty. I'm thinking of drizzling them with candy-coat chocolate I think that would help hold them together. Read More

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 oil to 1/4 cup good but a little greasy Read More

MISTAKE IN RECIPE INGREDIENTS......If you adjust the recipe (under the word "ingredients") to half the servings you will see that the adjusted amount of stevia powder is 1/2 cup, so the full amount for this recipe is 1 cup!!! I made a half recipe and made the following changes: used butter instead of coconut oil, halved the salt amount, used 1/3 cup monk fruit (we don't like really sweet and all I had in the cupboard was monk fruit) and added cinnamon and a tich of nutmeg and cloves. Surprisingly yummy Read More

Too salty I don t think the amounts were correct. Should have been a dash of salt and 3-4 packets of stevia. Read More
