What I love about these vegan keto Chocolate Chunk Cookies is that you can totally customise them to your own level of sweetness. I’ve added in a good starting point for a keto alternative or feel free to use maple syrup of coconut nectar if you’re vegan. Start with a little and taste the batter. It’s raw so it won’t harm you. The nut butter adds a natural sweetness.
Many so called healthy cookies are still loaded with a lot of sweeteners. Once you slowly wean yourself off sugar, you’ll start to realise you really only need a little. These vegan keto cookies don’t even need a sweetener if you’re trying to radically reduce sugar in your diet.
They’re made from nuts so are a rich and filling low-carb snack. One cookie is plenty satiating. These vegan keto cookies freeze well too! I hope you enjoy.
