Keto is a diet that cuts out sugar, but that shouldn’t deprive your keto-motivated soul of your childhood love: cookies.
Small ingredient tweaks make these keto cookie recipes perfectly suited for the keto diet. While keto doesn’t allow for straight sugar, it does allow for artificial sweeteners. These cookie recipes tend to put an emphasis on fats, paired with artificial sweeteners for tasty treats you can eat without shame.
