KETO FRIENDLY COOKIES

2020 / JUNE


Notes:

- For best results purchase whole seeds and blitzing the flax seeds and sunflower seeds yourself. This also allows for roasting the sunflower seeds before hand, removing chaff and increasing flavour.

- Golden Flax Seeds seem to yield the best results, but either is fine.

- There are many different types/brands of Coconut Flour, all of which have a different texture, and varying degrees of grittiness and/or buttery flavour notes. This will have impact on flavour, texture, and the liquid absorption.

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (with convection fan.)

2. Combine dry ingredients (and flavour option of choice.)

3. Add butter (depending on type, may need to be melted a bit to aid mixing.)

4. Using a fork, mix the ingredients together.

5. Add milk, mixing until all the milk has been absorbed, achieving a thick cookie-dough like consistency.

6. Divide and lightly shape the dough into even balls, and gently flatten them onto a baking sheet (or alternatively use a cookie tray of choice.)

7. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 180°C.

8. Remove from the oven, place the cookies on a grill (or equivalent,) and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
