It is a great day here in Hobbitville. We have seen a huge surge in visitors since I started adding The Keto Iron Chef’s recipes :). I soooo knew this was going to be a good thing :). He has a huge following on Facebook, it’s about time his fantastic and unique recipes get put in one place. Also, The Lady and I had an outing. We made that exciting trip to ‘town’ for a little shopping trip. She didn’t find what she was looking for, but she did find other things and any time I get to spend with her is awesome so no matter what, it wasn’t a wasted trip even if we came home empty handed :). On the downside, the temps have dropped below freezing and snow is due in a few hours. I expect to wake up to this view…
So, to celebrate this good day, The Lady decided it deserved cookies :). I completely agreed.
Didn’t think so 🙂
I decided to try something different so I made Maple Walnut cookies…with NO nut or coconut flour. If you want to have just a nut-free cookie because of allergies, just don’t add walnuts. Yup, this recipe only uses protein powder as the ‘flour.’ How cool is that??
Hobbit's Keto Maple Walnut Cookies
Preheat oven to 375F
- 0.75 cup Elite Whey Protein Isolate – Gourmet Vanilla
- 1 egg
- 0.50 cup(s), Butter, melted
- 1 cup Stevia or equivalent (bulk)
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tbsp water
- 0.50 tsp, Baking Powder
- 0.50 tsp baking soda
- 0.50 tsp Vanilla extract
- 0.50 tsp Maple Extract
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts (optional)
Combine all the dry ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine, breaking up any clumps. In a larger bowl, with your mixer quickly combine the sweetener and butter until completely incorporated. Add the egg and vanilla and maple, beat again until smooth. While beating on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients until you have a thick, spoonable dough. Add your nuts to the bowl and fold in with a spoon or spatula.
Let sit for 5 minutes while you line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat. Spoon or scoop 15 balls onto the baking sheet, then pop in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the lightly start to brown. Do NOT overcook these, they will dry out and be like eating chalk. They should look like below, a little tan on the bottom edges.
Remove…and unlike I usually suggest, eat these puppies as soon as they don’t burn your mouth! One must have maple while still warm (though these are tasty cool as well). Notice there are two missing?
The Lady couldn’t wait :).
BTW, these freeze excellent. ENJOY!!
