Dr Jockers Comments:

Using coconut flour is a fantastic strategy because it is low-carb, full of healthy fiber and good fats that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.  Grass-fed butter is full of essential fatty acids and fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E, K2, phosphatydlserine and butyric acid.

I changed the original recipe, which used honey or maple syrup and instead substituted stevia which is an all-natural sweetener that is 100 times as sweet as sugar.  Stevia has no impact on our blood sugar, which is why I prefer it over other sweeteners.

This is an amazing recipe that your family will love and enjoy!

    Can you use ghee as a grass fed butter for this cookie recipe?

    I would prefer to use jaggery or some other sweetener because I dont like stevias after taste. How much other sweetener would be called for?

    If I didn’t want to use stevia, could I use maple or agave? (If so, how much would I use?)

      Yes you can, Megan’s original recipe uses honey or maple syrup. She said 1 1/2 tbsps is all you need.

    Has anyone tried other extracts yet? I’m thinking orange or lemon sound good. Also, do you have a net carb count?

    • Dr. Jockers March 2, 2017 at 7:19 am #

      We don’t have a net carb count, but it is low carb. I would imagine these extracts would be excellent!
