Here is a recipe for you to try! They turned out sooo yummy that I wanted to post this before I forget how I made them today. Apologies for the lack of photos, but I just threw these together on a whim.
Oatbran, Almond, Chia and Blueberry Cookies
Ingredients: (makes 18+-)
1 stick of butter or 113 grams
1 ½ cup of keto sugar (I used 1 cup white, ½ cup brown)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup almond flour (or your preferred nut flour)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ cup oats
¼ cup oat bran
¼ cup oat fibre
¼ cup chia
¼ cup ground flaxseed
1 tblspn cinnamon
½ cup flaked almonds
¾ cup dried blueberries or dried strawberries (cut the strawberries into smaller bits) or your preferred fruit
In a large mixing bowl beat together the softened butter and sugar until well mixed
Add the single beaten egg
Mix in the vanilla essence
Add in the nut flour, cinnamon and baking powder
Turn oven on to 350⁰ F or 175⁰ C
Add in the oats, seeds, flaked nuts, fruit and mix in very well
Scoop spoonfuls and roll into a ball in your greased hands, flatten in your palms, place on parchment paper lined cookie tray
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until golden brown
Cool well before storing
You could also chill the dough overnight and bake the next day
Make sure to let them completely cool before removing from the baking tray. I left them in a full 15 minutes in the oven as I like cookies well browned. I guarantee you will love these too. I’m sure you could switch up with pecans or walnuts, maybe add chopped macadamia nuts or even chocolate chips.
We had some almond butter that was in the cupboard for months. So here is a quick little recipe I put together to use it up. I’m sure that peanut butter would be just as delicious, or any other nut butter!
Summary: we’ll be mixing the eggs and keto sugar first, then beating in the nut butter (it’s a workout without a beater!). Adding almond and vanilla essence, a little bit of nut flour and then once mixed placing teaspoons-full into a greased baking pan preferably lined with parchment paper. Press with an oiled fork, push in a few keto chocolate chips if you like and finish with a grind of Himalayan salt. Bake at 350⁰F for 12 – 15 minutes until browned. Makes about 20.
