Whoever came up with the idea of a breakfast cookie is a genius. I love the idea of eating cookies for breakfast and there is absolutely no guilt in these cookies because they are keto and low carb. I want to eat these Keto Breakfast Cookies every day!
The base of these cookies are very similar to my keto chocolate chip cookie recipe. I used almond flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, Swerve sweetener, baking powder, and salt. I also added in a little coconut flour and to make these more filling with some protein, I added sliced almonds and hemp hearts.
This isn’t my first time using hemp hearts in a recipe and it will definitely not be my last. They are an amazing little superfood that have almost no carbs, and they are packed with protein.
So we mix all of those ingredients together in a large bowl. I then used a cookie scoop to make 16 perfect little cookies. I scooped them all out onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
I then flattened them out by pressing them down a little with my fingers. This ensures even baking.
I baked them for exactly 13 minutes. You will know they are done when they start to brown around the bottom edges.
Now let them sit to firm up and try not to eat them all…they are so delicious!
I keep these stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 1 week. I also love to freeze them! After they are finished baking, leave them on the sheet pan and put them in the freezer for 1 hour, then put them in freezer safe container and store in the freezer.
