Keto Pantry Staples

You won’t find flour or sugar in these cookies! The staple ingredients in a standard cookie recipe are a no-no if you don’t want to fall out of ketosis. But with a few tweaks to your pantry, you will always have the ingredients for these easy cookies on hand.

  • Coconut butter is a must have for your Keto pantry. In addition to these coconut cookies, it can also be used to make other tasty snacks and fat bombs. Whatever you’re making, coconut butter adds a buttery texture and creamy flavor, without any of the downsides of dairy.
  • Nuts are a staple of Keto cuisine and they make a great crunchy addition to any cookie, low carb or not. Just remember that some nuts are higher in carbs than others, so be mindful when deciding which nuts to use.
  • Stevia and Erythritol are both Keto sugar substitutes. Stevia is considered to be about twice as sweet as cane sugar so only a little bit is needed to produce perfectly sweet desserts. Erythritol is a Keto-friendly sugar alcohol which is particularly suited for baking. With these substitutes in your pantry, you won’t miss cane sugar at all.

DIY Time!

Maybe you don’t live close to the store or maybe there’s a storm headed your way. Whatever the reason, don’t fret if you’re craving something sweet but don’t have everything you need.

  • If you have a food processor, making your own coconut butter is easy! Simply add 3-4 cups of dried unsweetened coconut to your food processor and blend until it forms a creamy paste, scraping the sides as needed. The resulting coconut butter can be stored at in an airtight container at room temperature for 10-14 days.
  • To ‘chop’ nuts without the mess, you can fill a gallon size freezer bag with nuts and roll over it firmly with a rolling pin until nuts are the desired size. Make sure to flip the bag over a few times to ensure that nuts are broken up evenly.

Customizing Your Cookies

Experimenting with baked cookies can be intimidating for beginners but these no-bake cookies could not be easier to customize.

  • To turn up the flavor, add a pinch of salt.
  • Try toasting the almonds before adding them to the coconut butter, just make sure they have time to fully cool first!
  • Add a tropical twist with a teaspoon of lime zest and ¼ teaspoon ground ginger.
