  1. These cookies are awesome tasted wonderful.Next batch I'm trying with almond extract.thank you for the recipe
     
  2. Think a few chopped macadamia nuts could be added?
     
  3. 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.
       
  4. Thanks for the immediate response! When you say tiny you mean sth like 1ts or 1tbs??? Thanks again!!!
     
  5. Thank you I will make them tomorrow and I ll post the results!!
     
  6. 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.
       
  7. 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). https://swervesweet.com/videos/swerve-and-carbohydrates
       
  8. 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.
