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!
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!
