If you are a nut fan like I am, you will love these soft, melt in your mouth cookies. These walnut cookies Keto style are a wonderful gluten free, low carb and sugar free alternative. You can also call them Keto almond nut cookies since we are using almond flour for this recipe! Whether you call these cookies walnut or almond nut, these cookies are so buttery, nutty and sweet that they totally curb cravings for those other more decadent cookies. Best of all these cookies do not taste like a diet cookie at all!
Erythritol and Monk Fruit Sweetener
Lets talk about this sweetener. Generally, Erythritol and Monk Fruit blends are used in Keto recipes because they have no or negligible amounts of calories and carbs. They don’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels. This is why these sweeteners are considered good alternatives to sugar.
These are the best Keto cookies I have made so far. As long as you have a food processor you can make these cookies in no time. All you have to do is combine all the ingredients in a food processor until it forms into dough and scoop it out onto a baking sheet. Quick and easy, just the way I like it!
