For The Love Of Baking
I grew up always baking and my parents gave me free license in the kitchen to do so. I remember begging my father to buy me my first Betty Crocker cookbook and then proceeding to wear it out. From measuring the ingredients, to the enticing smells coming from the kitchen that brings the every one together, I love everything about baking.
Well, maybe I don’t enjoy the cleanup afterwards. My point is, that baking has always played a big role in my life. So, when I went low carb keto, I was pretty certain I would have to hang up my baking apron. Needless to say, I was pretty sad about that possibility.
Frankly, in the beginning I really struggled to understand how to use alternate low carb flours. Working with gluten-free flours can be quite tricky. Reason being that these flours do not have gluten. That darn gluten is what makes everything so tasty and easy to work with.
Thankfully my determination to keep learning is what allowed me to continue my love of baking even in a low carb keto diet.
Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that Randy and I have been doing this lifestyle for years already. Today, I know my way around the low carb keto baking kitchen , but that was not always the case. Trust me those first few attempts were an epic fail. When I tell you, you would not have liked what was coming out of that oven in the beginning, you need to believe me.
Sure it took some trial and error, but once I understood the basics of low carb baking, I was off and running. I hope this encourages you to keep trying.
The satisfaction of knowing you are not only making something delicious but healthy, is quite powerful and rewarding.
I hope you will give these low carb keto peanut butter cookies a try. If you can’t have peanuts because of an allergy, Peanut allergy? Not a problem, just substitute the peanut butter for a sugar-free almond butter, or other favorite nut butter.
If you enjoy these melt-in-your-mouth low carb keto peanut butter cookies, please consider sharing the recipe.
