I first tried these as a print off from a Paleo site a couple of years ago. I’ve heard it said that Keto is just a really strict version of Paleo. I agree with this. That being said, these cookies can be Keto, but you’d have to work it into your daily macros and count the cost. I ate a couple of these last night and was still in Ketosis this morning. I am at the point where if i eat some higher carb items and then restrict the carbs immediately afterward, I never really come out of Ketosis, or if I do I jump right back in. It’s a great place to be because I can enjoy yummy treats like these and then hop right back on the Keto train.
This recipe is part of my “carb refeed” on my Keto-cycling. We had eaten Mexican for the first time in many months as a carb refeed and I’ll tell ya, we felt terrible afterwards. I think that I still have allergies to corn and everyone knows those chips are irresistible! I will probably ask my doctor to treat me for corn so that if I want to have the once in a blue moon Mexican food encounter, it won’t kill me! You’d be amazed at the things that make you feel bad that you are ACTUALLY allergic to in reality.
It’s cool being in lifestyle mode. It took me a while to get here where I can eat something really bad for one meal, enjoy it, then REALLY truly ENJOY getting back to Keto because I know that’s where my body is happy!! It’s a balance I am getting to that helps me LIVE! It’s a 95/5 balance.
These are the perfect treat to help me be just naughty enough, while still staying healthy!
Coconut flour chocolate chip cookies
1/3 cup coconut flour
