But, they only contain 3.4g net carbs per large cookie and they are the most fulfilling keto breakfast served with your bulletproof coffee. Keep reading to see how you can make keto-friendly oatmeal cookies with NO oats!
Before I share this new keto-friendly ‘oatmeal’ cookie recipe with you, let me answer the main question. Are oatmeal cookies keto? No, oatmeal is not a keto-friendly cereal.
It means you can’t have oats on your keto diet or, if you do want to eat oats, you will have to stick to a very low amount.
In fact, 1 cup of oat contains 23 grams of net carbs which is very high when you target to eat only 23g of net carbs for the entire day!
So the solution to make keto ‘oatmeal’ cookies recipe is to use ingredients that mimic the texture of oats and their flavor but contain way fewer carbs. That’s how I created these almond flour keto cookies. A breakfast keto cookie recipe made of keto nuts and seeds.
This keto breakfast cookie recipe is the easiest keto cookie recipe ever. All you need to make them is one bowl and a bunch of wholesome ingredients that when put together, taste like oatmeal breakfast cookies, without the carbs!
Let’s see what you need to start this keto peanut butter oatmeal style cookie recipe:
First, add all the dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl. Combine with a spoon until evenly combined. Then, pour the melted coconut oil, beaten egg, and vanilla extract.
Finally, combine with a spoon until thick and sticky. You can also use your hands to squeeze the batter and bring it together into a sticky cookie dough.
You can add up to 1/2 cup of extra sugar-free chocolate chips in your dough, they exist in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate flavors!
Or add more seeds like sunflower seeds or nuts into the dough. Be creative and try different flavors!
The cookie dough is sticky, so you can lightly grease your hands with coconut oil before rolling the dough into cookie dough balls.
One cookie dough ball is about 40g and the recipe forms 9 cookie dough balls. Place each cookie dough ball onto a baking tray with 1 thumb space between each cookie.
Then, flatten the cookies with your hands. The thinner the crispier they will be. This cookie keto recipe doesn’t expand in the oven, so you don’t have to worry about cookie spreading on the tray.
Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper with oil. Then, bake for 12-15 minutes or until the sides are golden brown.
The center will stay soft but they will firm up when fully cool down.
These keto breakfast cookies need to cool down completely to reach their best texture. Be patient, cool the cookies 10 minutes on the tray, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool 1 hour to appreciate their best texture. Note that their flavor will be even better the next day.
They are crispy on the sides and chewy in the center. They taste like your favorite oatmeal cookies with only wholesome, high fiber, and low-carb ingredients.
These keto breakfast cookies must be stored in a cookie jar or any sealed container at room temperature. They store well for up to 6 days! Don’t store in the fridge or they soften. However, they freeze really well to make ahead your keto breakfast on-the-go!
Freeze the cookies individually in zip bags and thaw 3 hours before on a rack at room temperature.
You can have so many keto cookies on a low-carb diet. Below I listed my favorite keto cookies recipe including my almond flour chocolate chip cookie recipe, perfect for breakfast or a keto dessert too!
