At this moment in time I’m experimenting with a high fat, low carb diet – in fact, it’s pretty much a Ketogenic diet at this point. One thing I really miss though is snacks. I know we should only eat when we feel hungry and that food is the fuel our bodies need to run but my struggle recently has been this.. I like food. I like eating it, I like making it & I like sharing it with others.
So while I am only eating what I actually feel I need and not just because I’m bored or because it’s the socially acceptable thing to do (aka lunch at 12) I wanted to have something to hand I could indulge in a little when I felt like it. And soo… Cookies!!!!
Now this recipe is one I’ve been toying with for many weeks and has gone through many incarnations. I wanted it to be low carb (obviously) with a decent fat content and preferably low in protein so it doesn’t affect my macros. (Tip: If you want higher protein cookies swap out the double/heavy cream for Greek Yoghurt 😉 ) After burning, undercooking and making absolutely horrible cookies I got to this one! So far everyone I’ve had try one who are not into healthy eating have said it tastes like chocolate (woohoo!) and it’s kind’ve like cake (bonus!).
So with that being said, go forth and indulge in these low carb, Chocolate Coconut Cookies 😀
