Low Carb Keto Black and White Cookies



There is just something about black and white cookies that make me smile. For years, some version of this cookie made it to the table to be shared with family and friends. My brother Paul used to make the best traditional black and white cookies ever. If I recall correctly, it was his love for this type of cookie that compelled him to learn how to bake. I realize I may be a bit bias, but not only were they delicious, they were magazine cover worthy. However, even his gorgeous cookies needed a healthy update. This is why my Low Carb Keto Black and White Cookie needed to be birthed.

The first-time he shared a batch of his black and white cookies with me, I was floored. Once I picked myself up off the ground, I quickly seized his All Butter Fresh Cream Sugar Packed Baking Book  and then proceeded to never return it to him. Ha! That makes up for all the times he would steal my leftovers growing up. I loved this book and I remember referring to it so often that it literally fell apart. These days that book is buried under a pile of other similar ones, safely untouched. But I must admit it was a fantastic book, even if it no longer fits my low carb keto lifestyle.

These Low Carb Keto Black and White Cookies make it that much easier to say no to the offending sugar and grains. With their yummy, almost shortbread like texture and perfect sweetness these cookies will have you forgetting about the sugar-filled versions.

Oh, how times have changed for this baker. Today, I refuse to eat a cookie that is loaded with sugar and empty carbs and haven’t for years. Once you have tasted health, well no amount of enticing can cause you to go back. I think this is why it’s been fairly easy for me to stay the course.

I understand that not everyone can be as committed, but if you understood my journey you would see why I choose to eat this way. For over a decade I lived with chronic, bedridden pain. Pain that had me almost a year on the morphine patch and without relief. What was the cause of all this anguish? I was stricken with the Guillan Barre Syndrome, CIDP, fibromyalgia, and chronic sciatica. It was not easy living this way, which is why there is no turning back for this girl.  Perhaps, you can now understand why I am so passionate about sharing the ketone conversation and my recipes. You can read more about my journey here.

It was a combination of prayer, standing on God’s word and eating a low carb keto diet that started me on my journey to wellness. Being whole in spirit, mind and body is something I strive to do every day and although not always perfectly, I am not where I used to be.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of softened butter
  • 2 cups of sugar substitute (I use Swerve)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 3 cups of almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened dark cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. In a large stand up mixer beat the butter, sugar substitute, eggs, vanilla until light and fluffy. Next add the 3 cups of almond flour, baking powder and salt gradually. Make sure to combine everything well.
  2. Once the batter is made, reserve 1 cup of the batter and add the ¼ cup of unsweetened dark cocoa powder to this. This will be the “black” portion of your cookies.
  3. On parchment paper mound the batter in a row like the picture demonstrates. Next add the chocolate batter over the “white” batter and spread evenly.
  4. Place your dough in an empty foil or parchment paper container and allow the cookies to freeze for at least five hours until the dough is solid. Freezing your dough will allow you to slice them more uniformly. Putting your cookie dough into an empty foil container is optional. It only serves to help shape your cookie. However, this dough must be frozen.
  5. Bake on parchment paper at 350 degrees until the edges of your cookies are lightly browned. Allow them to fully cool then optionally dip the chocolate portion of your black and white cookies into the low carb chocolate coating.
Cuisine: dessert, cookies, chocolate | Recipe Type: low carb, keto, dessert
