After making Keto Bread my confidence got a real boost. If bread came out so well, why not try making cookies. I had grounded flax seeds at home, some coconut flour which gave me the inspiration to do some baking. All Ketoites are well aware that biscuits are the worst thing that you can do to your body, even worse than bread. But you will also admit that the comfort that a crunchy cookie provides is not easily replaceable. I have for you today Keto Flax Seed Crunchy Cookies.
My cookies today are simple, yummy and Keto friendly. Unlike other Keto foods, they actually taste like a cookie. In other words, they are not look-alikes of a real cookie, they taste and look like one. This is the first time I am having flax seeds and I admit they have immense potential to be tried in all kinds of recipes.
First bread and now cookies, life is good!
Keto Flax Seed Cookies Recipe
- 3 tbsp Coconut Oil melted
- 3 tbsp Flax Seed powder or grounded
- 2 Small Eggs
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut
- 3 tbsp Sweetener of your choice and as per your taste

- Warm the peanut butter in the micro till it is nice and smooth.
- The coconut oil can be added now and then mix it well.
- Now add the flax seeds powder spoon by spoon and keep mixing.

- Drop spoonfuls of batter at equal distances and press down with the back of a spoon.

Tip: If you are in the mood for an adventure drop a small piece of Lindt 90% chocolate in the center of the cookie and cover it up with batter for a gooey center. If you drop the coconut the carb content will go down even further. I actually allowed them to cool overnight, before tasting them in the morning. And if you are wondering, they do not taste eggy at all.
