How To Make Keto Blueberry Lemon Cookies
Making these blueberry keto cookies is pretty straightforward. You’ll start by mixing in a medium-sized bowl the coconut flour, baking powder, salt.
Then set aside the dry ingredients and proceed to make the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, start by mashing 1/4 cup of the fresh blueberries. Note that if you opt to use frozen blueberries you can skip this step.
Then in a separate large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer beat together the softened butter, cream cheese, sugar substitute, vanilla extract, and the mashed blueberries until fully combined.
Once this is done, you’ll add the eggs one at a time beating them well after each addition. After the mixture is fully incorporated you’ll stir in the remaining 1 1/4 cup of whole blueberries.
And then add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, and continue to mix until fully combined. I recommend that you chill the dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator before baking in a preheated 350-degrees f oven.
Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, measure out the dough and roll them into balls. Then place the cookie dough balls onto the prepared parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
At this point, I recommend you form the cookie shape by slightly flattening each cookie ball placed onto the parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Next, is baking time. You’ll bake them for 15- 20 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges.
While the cookies bake, make the keto lemon glaze for the cookies by mixing in a small bowl, the sugar-free confectioner’s sweetener, lemon extract, and heavy whipping cream.
Once the cookies are allowed to cool on a cooling rack, you can drizzle them with the lemon glaze. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze for up to three weeks.
The Difference Between Using Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries For These Keto Cookies
You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this blueberry low-carb cookie recipe. If you decide to use frozen there is no need to reserve some of the frozen blueberries to mash.
Using frozen blueberries will make the entire cookies have a purple-blue hue after they are baked. This is because the frozen and blueberries will melt easier into the cookie dough.
Fun-Fact, if using fresh blueberries the blueberries will mainly stay intact and therefore not give the cookies a bright purple color.
Best Sugar Substitute Options For Sugar-Free Blueberry Cookies
When it comes to choosing your low-carb sweetener, I have several options that work well with this recipe. I really like Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener because the texture is spot on and because there is barely any aftertaste.
This is a great one especially if you are new to sugar substitutes because it mimics sugar the most in my book.
I’m also partial to Swerve an erythritol blend. Although you should keep in mind that it does have a bit more of a cooling aftertaste that some people dislike.
Alternatively, you could also use a stevia and erythritol-based brand like Pyure. This is if you prefer to use stevia in your baked goods. If you go this route you need to reduce the amount by half since it is twice as sweet.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success. I know not everyone would agree with me here and I respect that but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
