5 Ingredient Keto Walnut Cookie with health benefits. Walnut, an edible seed of a drupe (stone fruit) is more than just nutritious food. They provide fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and most importantly, healthy fats. When following a keto (ketogenic) diet, it is about high fats, sufficient protein and low carbohydrates. When following this diet, it is about the body burning fats instead of carbohydrates. Therefore, it is essential to eat healthy fats such as the walnuts.

This scrumptious keto walnut cookie is super simple to make and has only about 1 gram of net carbs per cookie. I prefer to use monk sugar in my keto recipes because it is a natural sweetener extracted from monk fruit and contains no calories or carbs. Isn’t it wonderful that we can enjoy delicious healthy cookies like this one on the keto diet? You will find more Keto recipes here->

Ingredients

  • 3 extra-large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup monk sugar or xylitol
