How to Make Keto Cookies
In a separate bowl, add in the butter and sweeteners. Cream together using a hand mixer, then add in the egg and salted caramel sauce, continue mixing.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
If you like a thicker cookie, leave the scoops round and do not flatten. Either way, the cookies will be nice and chewy!
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow to cool completely before drizzling with the optional salted caramel sauce.
Note: These cookies are on the sweeter side with the caramel drizzle over the top. So I recommend testing one cookie first, to see if the level of sweetness is to your liking.
Can I Freeze Salted Caramel Keto Cookies?
You sure can! In fact, if you're in the baking mood, bake a double batch so you can freeze one. They are great to have on hand when you have a sweet tooth that hit.
To freeze them with the glaze, just do a quick pre freeze for about an hour on a sheet pan before storing them in an air-tight container. They will keep for a couple of months so anytime you want one, just set one (or two, if you're like me) for a few minutes and it's ready to eat.
Tips for the Best Gluten Free Cookies
- Let them cool: This is honestly the best tip for all almond flour cookies. With the absence of gluten, they tend to be very tender when they first come out of the oven. To keep them from breaking apart, let them cool for about 10-15 minutes before carefully moving them to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
- How to get perfect chewy texture: Gluten free cookies can be challenging if you are looking for a texture similar to traditionally baked cookies. With the addition of xanthan gum, you will get that chewiness without it changing the flavor.
- What's the best sweetener for Keto cookies? For these Salted Caramel Cookies, I used a Brown Monk Fruit/Allulose blend that is absolutely perfect. It gives the cookies a sweet flavor without any type aftertaste.
What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.
Are Almond Flour Cookies Keto?
Traditional cookies of any kind are not acceptable on Keto or low carb diets because sugar and wheat flour are used as ingredients.
But all that worry has been resolved! This salted caramel gluten free cookie recipe uses almond flour which is great for Keto cookie recipes because almond flour is low in carbs, and high in fiber, protein and fat.
