Tips for Making Keto Cookies
Keto Sweeteners for Making Keto Cookies
Many of these cookie recipes use sugar substitutes like sugar alcohols and non-caloric sweeteners. If you’re not sure which ones to use, don’t worry. We wrote a whole blog post on keto sweeteners to use on a ketogenic diet.
Here are some of our favorite keto sweteners (if you can’t find them at your local grocery store, they are all available on Amazon):
If you’re just getting started baking and you need tools, here are a few essentials you’ll use all the time, especially when making a keto cookie recipe. You can pick these up at a kitchen supply store or find them on Amazon.
Choose your recipe. Make a grocery list and shop for the ingredients. You might already have quite a few of them in a well-stocked keto kitchen.
Measure out your ingredients. We recommend weighing your dry ingredients with a kitchen scale. Like making regular cookies, there is a science to making keto cookies. The wet ingredients, dry ingredients, leavening agents, etc. all work together to make sure the cookies bake up properly.
Follow the recipe instructions specifically because the recipe was tested for success. For example, if it says to mix the dry ingredients together before adding the wet ingredients, make sure to do it.
Let your eggs sit at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes before baking with them.
When a recipe calls for butter at room temperature, leave the butter out for about an hour to an hour and a half before you bake with it. Alternatively, you can warm it very slowly in a microwave, rotating it about every 5 seconds so it warms evenly.
Keto Cookies FAQs
Can I Substitute Coconut Flour for Almond Flour?
Maybe. In most recipes this may work, but it is not a 1 to 1 substitution. You will only need 1/4 the amount of coconut flour as you do almond flour. This is because of the fiber content of the coconut flour, which causes it to absorb more liquid than almond flour. Don’t substitute at a 1 to 1 ratio or your cookies will come out terribly dry.
Can I Use Duck Eggs in a Cookie Recipe?
Yes you can! Duck eggs tend to be a little bigger and fattier than chicken eggs, so they tend to be ideal for a ketogenic diet. Just be careful if they are really huge, you may need to increase the flour just a tad in the recipe to compensate for the added liquid.
