5 Ingredient Keto Walnut Cookie, Keto Walnut Recipes
Just because you are following a keto diet does not mean that you can’t have sweet cookies. A perfect example is this 5 Ingredient Keto Walnut Cookie recipe. Not only this keto cookie is very satisfying, but the cookie has health benefits.
This keto cookie recipe is made with only five ingredients—eggs, walnuts, vanilla, a pinch of salt, and sweetened with monk sugar. I can’t think of any ingredient in this keto cookie recipe that is unhealthy.
let us examine the ingredients,
A keto (ketogenic) diet is about healthy fats, sufficient protein, and low carbohydrates. The walnuts are high, mostly in polyunsaturated fats. These fats are considered healthy fats and are essential when following a keto diet.
Eggs, we all know that eggs are protein-packed, but they are also rich in vitamin D, a much needed vitamin, especially during the winter months when sunshine is scarce.
Eggs have a fair amount of vitamin A, cobalamin (B-12), iron, B-6, and a good source of complete protein. A complete protein means that an egg contains all the essential amino acids our bodies need.
Monk sugar is an extract derived from dried monk fruit. The pure form of monk sugar is 150 to 200 times sweeter than sugar and has very little after taste.
Monk sugar has zero calories and zero net carbs and is rich in powerful antioxidants. Monk sugar is often mixed with other zero-carb sweeteners such as xylitol.
the keto walnut cookie,
This healthy cookie is probably one of the easiest cookies to make. Honestly, hands-on time is less than ten minutes. The walnut cookie has a good texture and is very tasty.
The best part, this keto recipe has only about 1 gram of net carbs per one cookie.
When following the keto diet, it is about the body burning fats instead of carbohydrates. Therefore, it is essential to eat healthy fats such as walnuts have.
