How To Choose The Right Keto Sweetener
For this cookie, you need a granulated sweetener that’s low in carbs and the proper texture for creaming with coconut oil. Lakanto monk fruit sweetener is the ideal sweetener blend for the task.
This sweetener scores a zero on the glycemic index, meaning it won’t send your blood glucose levels soaring. This particular blend is a one-to-one replacement for table sugar, thanks to a hint of erythritol. While we wouldn’t recommend excess consumption of any sugar alcohols, moderate intake of erythritol has been shown to be safe and helps keep your body in ketosis when you want to tame a sweet craving.
You’ll also want to opt for sugar and dairy-free chocolate chips, like these.
Helpful Tips To Get You Started:
- Chill the dough before shaping. This recipe uses a significant amount of coconut oil, so it’s important to chill the dough for at least 10 minutes before shaping it into small balls. Chilling the dough will firm it up a little and make it easier to handle.
