  1. Yum Yum Yummmmmm!!!

     
  2. these look great, I must try. maybe with a little more coffee 🙂

     
  3. Tammy Scates

    Instead of coconut flakes, could you add some sugar free choc chips or some other fruit?

     
    • fittoservegroup

      Hi Tammy, So I would increase the coconut flour to 1 1/2 cups and then add 1/2 cup of sugar free chocolate chips. Unfortunately, adding fruit may cause the cookies to be a little soggy. I would stick with a small amount of berries if you decide to try. I do have a keto cranberry cookie that is also made with coconut flour.(https://www.fittoservegroup.com/2017/12/15/keto-cranberry-orange-cookies/ ) You might want to check that recipe too. Keep me posted if you decide to try customizing it. 😉

       
  4. Thanks for the feed back!

     
  5. We are getting ready for a two day road trip. The trip itself is pretty grueling. These may be just the thing that will add a touch of much-needed “sweetness” to our hours on the road!

    Thanks for a great recipe! Every recipe I’ve made from your site has been absolutely delicious!

     
  6. What kind of sweetener can be used. I have stevia and no cal sweetener made with sucralose.

     
  7. I made these today with the following changes and they came out great!
    Removed the shredded coconut. Substitute 1/2 cup Lakanto monk fruit confectioners sugar for the 1 cup of Swerve. Add unsweetened Almond milk ‘till batter sticks together. (About 3-4tbsps)

     
  8. Love them but they were a little dry. Was wondering why there want any egg added to this recipe? May have made them moist and more dense.

     
    • Hi Shannon, I appreciate your input. Many people have made this recipe and not found the cookies to be dry. I would say that coconut flour can be a little tricky and they differ quite a bit from brand to brand. Also oven temperatures can also vary. You could certainly try adding an egg to this recipe if you feel it would suit your needs better. I chose to make it without egg in my attempt to give those who cannot eat eggs to also have an option. Thanks for stopping by.

    Could I use almond flour?

     
  10. Just made these! They’re delicious. Can I freeze the extras?!?! Also the macros you listed what is the serving?

     
    • Hi Courtney, I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe darling. You certainly can freeze the leftovers with no problem. The label for the cookies is at the bottom of the page. These are less than a carb each and makes 30 small cookies.

       
  11. Sandy bartlett

    These cookies are awesome tasted wonderful.Next batch I’m trying with almond extract.thank you for the recipe

     
  12. Think a few chopped macadamia nuts could be added?

     
  13. I have tried them and they were great but a bit fluffy not easy to pack and carry them..turned into pieces! Would some xantham gum make them more consistent??

     
    • Hi Stamatia, Not sure why you had a problem with them because it’s a recipe that’s made often on the site and people tag me with their pictures. You can add xantham gum if you like but it should be a tiny amount. Hope that works for you.

       
  14. Thanks for the immediate response! When you say tiny you mean sth like 1ts or 1tbs??? Thanks again!!!

     
  15. Thank you I will make them tomorrow and I ll post the results!!

     
  16. Marilyn Ellis

    I made my first batch of these coconutty and delicious little morsels. Yum!

    That being said, what can I do to make them turn out a little more moist? I followed the recipe exactly; I used organic unsweetened coconut flakes and Arrowhead Mills Organic Coconut Flour — which I gently spooned into my measuring cup. ALSO, I ADDED 1/8 cup MORE SWEETENER (I used Splenda).

    I definitely will be making these again AND WOULD APPRECIATE SOME FEEDBACK ON MAKING THEM LESS DRY.

    Thanks for this great recipe.

     
    • Hi Marilyn, you know these alternative flours can be quite finicky. But perhaps you can reduce the coconut flour by three tablespoons. If you can do eggs you might want to checkout some other coconut flour cookies on my site, like the lemon, chocolate and orange cranberry. Let me know if you need me to share the links of those. Hope this helps.

       
    • With coconut flour, you need to let the batter sit a minute before you cook it to allow the flour to absorb the moisture. Perhaps this is the issue for you. It is a thirsty flour. Hope this helps.

       
  17. Hi there, quick question…this recipe looks really yummy, so I added it to my fitness pal so I can make sure I stay within my macros. It seems like every time I add a recipe in MFP, the carbs are much higher than what’s listed. So I wonder, how do you calculate your nutrition info? I want to know what I (or MFP) is missing so I can enjoy more of this type of treat!

     
    • Hi Mindy, it’s probably because you are including the sugar substitute in the calculations. All keto food bloggers do not add them to the total. Here is an explanation on Swerve my sweetener of choice: Swerve is the name brand of Erythritol it’s unlike other sugar alcohols has a 0 % impact on blood sugar. (unlike Xylitol and Malitol) It is completely safe to eat on a keto diet and you do not need to count the carbs in your Net carb count for the day.
      Erythritol is only 0.2 Calories per gram. It is listed as 25 grams of carbs by difference. In the US at least, anything that is not protein or fat when tested is automatically listed as a carb by difference. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is 90% processed in the small intestine. The human body cannot derive energy from erythritol (hence the low calorie count), and it has 0 glycemic impact and load (no insulin response).

  18. Marilyn Ellis

    Thanks for the tips, Hilda. The next time I make these little goodies I’m going to add a bit more butter and, to keep the carbs down, I’m going to try Swerve. Did you use the Granular Swerve in these cookies? Many thanks for your help. I look forward to your response.

     
  19. Laura schmit

    Made these today and couldn’t be more satisfied with the results. Even my 9 year old loves them. I read through the comments, but didn’t find an answer… how many carbs per cookie? Yield was 30.

     
    • Hi Laura, The nutritional facts are inside the black box at the end of the recipe. 1 net carb per cookie. So happy to hear that you and your 9 year old loved the recipe. Thanks for stopping by 😉

       
  20. This recipe looks great and I was wanting to make some cookies tonight, but I don’t have any coconut flakes. Is there a way to make them without them?

     
  21. Recipe sounded great…I just started Keto about 3 weeks ago…so far so good…But I cant stomach Coconut or Almond flour or Baking with Stevia…they all leave a funny after taste that is terrible to me…I made these, super easy turned out great But again all I taste is Stevia

     
    • Hi Sandy, Like you I am not a fan of Stevia. Have you tried erythritol the Swerve brand is great or MonkFruit Lakanto’s brand is also great. If you notice none of my recipes use Stevia. People have also used Splenda with great success.

       
  22. Could I substitute almond flour with this recipe?

     
    • Hi Amber, You really can’t substitute almond flour cup for cup with coconut flour they act very differently. I have not made an almond flour version so not sure how much you would need but my guess would be at least double the amount of coconut flour called for in the recipe.

       
  23. These are really great – love them..light and fluffy. The only problem is that mine are falling apart….did I do something wrong?

     
  24. Hi! New to baking! I made these and they smell great! Too sweet for me. And these sugar replacements are hard on me. I have tried stevia, monk, swerve and mixes of each. Can I just reduce the sugar to half without drastically destroying the recipe? Wondering if it will be a waste of my ingredients and time. Consistency may be impacted?

     
  25. Have you ever frozen the dough before?

     
  26. These are the most awesome keto cookies I’ve made. Used Swerve and added the cream. Thought about adding Lily ‘s chips but didn’t. Nice quantity, great texture great taste. Although my desire for high carb sweets is gone now, I do enjoy a small treat now and then. Thank you so much.

     
  27. Just made these cookies, used the heavy whipping cream…delicious!!!

     
  28. How do you store them

     
  29. CactusHeart

    Did you say TABLESPOON of baking powder?!?? I read tablespoon, are you sure you did not mean TEASPOON? It’s too bad that I likely will not get the answer in time🤦‍♀️

     
  30. Is the 1g of Carbohydrates a Net Carb?

     
  31. Made these a couple day ago. Can’t believe how delicious they are. Had 3 of them in one day, way more than I should of but enjoyed every morsel. Already recommended this recipe to others. Can’t thank you enough.

     
  32. These were super easy and delicious.Thank you for sharing

     
  33. Can we freeze the cooked cookies?

     
  34. I printed your recipe for Keto lemon cookies but the instructions did not print. Could you send me the complete instructions? Thank you

     
  35. Bessy Maradiaga

    Today I made a recipe, the result…DELICIOUS!!! Thank you for share your gift with us. Blessings!

     
  36. Cray Stringer
