Low Carb Butter Cookie Energy Bites A Low Carb no bake energy ball that taste just like Danish butter cookies and are ready in just a few minutes!

These low carb energy bites are buttery, sweet, a little salty, and hard to eat just one. Luckily they are only 2 net carbs per serving!

These low carb energy bites / balls are buttery, sweet, a little salty, and hard to eat just one.  Luckily they are less than 2 net carbs per serving!

 One of my favorite cookies in the whole world are the Danish butter cookies.  You know the ones…they magically appear around Christmas time in that blue tin.  Its is definitely hard to eat just one.  In fact, I usually eat several because I am a self proclaimed cookie monster!

Since cookies are my weakness, I set out to make a copycat bite that will tide me over through the holidays.  I think I have succeeded!  These low carb energy bites are so reminiscent of those infamous cookies, and they are so easy to make!

I know that most people associate an energy bite with being high in protein, but when you are on a low carb diet, you are getting your energy from fat and we try to keep our protein moderate.  These low carb energy bites are the perfect energy source for a low carb diet as most of the calories are from fat.

See how easy these are to make in this video:

I have been getting so much feedback from this recipe.  Everyone loves it!  People are adding lemon, coconut, cinnamon…the possibilities are endless!  These really are a blank canvas so experiment and let me know how you customized them!

    How is it 2 net carbs per serving? The nutritional information guide has 3.1 carbs and 2.6 sugars? Otherwise would love to try the recipe!

      She subtracted the 1.5g fiber from the 3.1g carbs to get 1.6 net carbs (rounded up to 2g).

      You could probably use 1/4 tsp of liquid stevia (or more to taste). You could also use granular stevia. I do not use granular stevia much so I am not sure on the amounts.

        Is it ok to use maple syrup if so how much? I find the sweetener very expensive.

          It would need to be a powder sweetener. If you did a liquid sweetener, you would need to use more almond flour.

    Wow yum! I added a pinch of cinnamon to mine, will definitely be making these again! Might even try leaving out the sweetener, mix in a little mozzarella & Italian seasoning to serve with dinner! Thanks!

    I just made these and they are delicious! I added a little sugar free brown sugar syrup and they taste just like sugar cookie dough! I’m going to try them with sugar free chocolate chips next…

      I think if you want to bake them, you should mix up according to my chocolate chip cookie recipe but leave out the chocolate chips. https://jenniferbanz.com/healthy-chocolate-chip-cookies

      coconut flour is very absorbent so it would require more liquid. I am in the process of developing a coconut flour version that will be coming soon!

    These are so simple and delicious! Next time I’m going to add almond extract. I think that would make them even more heavenly! I’m also going to roll the balls in granular Swerve to add a touch of sweetness.
