Keto Cookie Butter
If you’ve been eyeing that jar of cookie butter at the store, but the ingredients list is holding you back, We’ve got some good news for you! Our Keto cookie butter is packed with spiced cookie flavor without any of the sugar, artificial flavors, or preservatives that you’ll find in the cookie butter from the store. It all starts with the cookie base. Ours is made with a mix of coconut and almond flours, spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. Ghee and erythritol to taste round out the dough, which is baked to perfection. Then, when the cookies are cool, you blend them with coconut oil to create a smooth and creamy spread perfect for a sweet treat any time of day.
What Is Cookie Butter and Where Does it Come From?
Cookie butter is exactly what it sounds like, a spread resembling nut butter made from cookies. Modern cookie butter was invented in Belgium in the mid-2000s and quickly spread across Europe. It didn’t become popular in the United States until recently, around 2015, but now it can be found in grocery store all across the country.
How to Enjoy Your Cookie Butter
It can be tempting to eat cookie butter with a spoon but it lasts longer when it’s used as a spread like it’s meant to be. Here are a few suggestions on how to eat your cookie butter. Just don’t go too crazy!
- On toast – A spoonful of cookie butter goes a long way when it’s spread on a slice of Keto toast.
- On a waffle – This was my introduction to cookie butter. I was studying in Germany and my host sister couldn’t believe I had never had a cookie butter waffle before.
- With ice cream – I love a spoonful of cookie butter swirled into vanilla ice cream.
- In another recipe – In Europe, they often use cookie butter to replace nut butter in recipes. With a little tinkering, cookie butter would be delicious in recipe like almond butter fudge.
