Keto Nut-free Tangy Lemon Cookies

Low Carb Nut-Free Tangy Lemon Cookies

Have you ever wondered how I come up with low carb keto recipes, like these Keto Carb Nut-free Tangy Lemon Cookies? Well, you may be in for a surprising treat. You see for me it usually starts with rummaging through my baking cupboard and saying a prayer.

I don’t mean like a casual prayer. This girl truly invites Jesus into her baking process. If that sounds strange to you, you have lots to learn about me.

Can I be truly transparent with you? I think my baking pantry may shock some of you because of its simplicity and lack of ingredients.

I am pretty certain that most food bloggers trying to come up with a recipe like my Keto Nut-free Tangy Lemon Cookies probably have an array of ingredients to work with.

But that’s not the case for this girl. Does this mean I sometimes secretly envy some of them? Well, I admit I have been guilty of this.

However, the way my mind works is that keeping my low carb baking cupboards only stocked with some basic staples forces me to be creative.

Does that sound odd to you?

Have you ever heard the saying “necessity is the mother of invention”? Yeah, I live by those words.

Here’s the thing, I think my low carb keto baking cupboard probably looks a lot like yours. It too is probably not always fully stocked, and it’s not full of rare exotic ingredients.

Am I correct in assuming this? It’s one of the reasons why my recipes, are kept simple.

Low Carb, Keto And Nut-Free

I say all this to say that, when I came up with the recipe for these keto nut-free lemon cookies, I had just run out of almond flour, and Randy was wanting a little keto friendly treat after dinner.

I love that today I can share a low carb nut-free option with you that allows my friends who are allergic to nuts to enjoy them too. What takes this low carb lemon cookies to the next level is the tangy lemon glaze.

  1. Hi, I see the nutritional info for one cookie but i do not see anywhere how many cookies the recipe makes. Am I missing it somehow? Thanks!

    • Hilda Solares
      Hi Marcelle! In the nutritional info it shows that it makes 24 serving and that a serving is one cookie. Of course I highly doubt you could have just one ?Enjoy in good health! ?

  2. Oops! My bad! Don't know how I missed that. I will DEFINITELY be making these this week. My mouth is watering just reading the recipe! Thanks sooo much!!
