Are sprinkles keto friendly?
I know what you are thinking…are sprinkles keto friendly? Technically, they are not because they have sugar. But if you have followed me for very long you know my motto, keto is a metabolic state, not certain foods. The sprinkles I used have sugar and they contribute 1g of carbs per cookie. Yes, only 1 gram! Store bought sprinkles are about $3 but if you want some sugar free ones, you can find them here: https://amzn.to/3u65LSa. In my opinion, they are not worth the extra cost.
How do you get perfectly uniform keto cookies?
Dividing cookie dough into uniform portions with spoons can be quite difficult. I love to use a scoop for cookies, muffins, meatballs, etc. so I get the same size cookie every time. For this keto birthday cookie recipe, I used a 3 tablespoon scoop and it made exactly 18 cookies.
