Sink your teeth into these chocolatey, fat-filled treats. Perfect for increasing your fat on the ketogenic diet. Made with my favorite keto-friendly NOW Foods ingredients. There’s so much simplicity in this recipe. And, simplicity is making me REALLY happy right now. It’s been one heck of a beginning to summer for us. In the last 3 months, we’ve come home from the keto diet book tour, renovated a 40-foot RV, prepared the house for sale, posted the house for sale, and are now cruising around Canada creating new memories in our soon-to-be full-time house. Oh, and did I mention we’re going on tour again in a couple of weeks? Like I said, insane. All self-inflicted, but hectic nonetheless. So, I’m totally diggin’ the easy recipes these days. You know, the ones where you throw everything in a bowl, hope for the best, and dig in regardless? I promise I’ll only ever share the winning ones, not the slop-looking yucky ones. I’ve been preparing these keto no-bake cookies during all of the crazy months, so I figured it was about time I share the official recipe with you. I made these keto haystack cookies with a couple of my favorite NOW Foods products. The thing I like about sharing NOW Foods products with you all is that many of you can actually get them. They’re available in your local health food store, likely a couple of grocery stores in your area, making recipes like this super accessible for all. I used… Ellyndale Organic Coconut Oil If you like strong coconut flavor in your coconut oil, you’ll want to try this oil! Otherwise, the NOW Foods Coconut Oil may be better for you. NOW Foods Cacao Powder I like this cacao powder because it’s sun dried and not roasted, so you can expect a pure chocolate flavor as opposed to cocoa powder. NOW Foods Erythritol About 70% as sweet as sugar. It’s my favorite sugar substitute for people that say that they don’t enjoy stevia. If you’re sensitive to corn, you may be sensitive to erythritol. In this case, you could use xylitol, monk fruit, or stevia if you don’t hate it! NOW Foods Cacao Nibs Cacao nibs are a fun way of adding chocolate chip-like texture to any recipe. With cacao nibs, you get the benefits of chocolate from its purest form–raw cacao.
My team and I work on finding the best products that not only have quality ingredients, but care about their customers. It has taken us years to find products with ingredients and integrity that I can stand behind. These brands want to be part of our community, and this blog post is one of the ways we’re sharing their awesomeness. Opinions in this blog post are never ever influenced by the partner. Like, never!
