Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fun and tasty recipe that is full of fiber, healthy fats and clean protein. It is low carb, ketogenic and helps us to stabilize our blood sugar and burn fat.
If you are following an autoimmune nutrition plan than you may want to avoid the sunflower seeds and instead use extra coconut flakes. Coconut flakes are a great source of medium chain fats that help us to burn fat and provide immediate fuel for our body and brain. They also provide good prebiotic fiber for our microbiome.
Stevia is my preferred sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on our blood sugar. You can use a wide variety of protein powders, bone broth protein which has collagen protein that is great for your joints, skin and gut.
If you are on an autoimmune nutrition plan and looking for a great gut healing protein than I would highly recommend our Gut Healing Protein powder here
I’m on weight watchers doesn’t sound like 30 points which I am allowed?
I would definitely not recommend weight watchers.
These are amazing, made with honey and no stevia and still a little too sweet even. But how do I store them? Thank you!
You can store these in the refrigerator for short term usage (within 3 days or so) and in the freezer for long-term usage.
What is calorie count??
The recipe call for replacing the sunflower seed with 2 cups of coconut shreads if I don’t want or have seeds. Is this correct? It only calls for 1/2 cup of seeds. The two cup replacement seems to be too much.
Yes the original recipe calls for 1.5 cups of coconut shreds so you would simply replace the half cup of seeds with a half cup of coconut shreds for a total of 2 cups of coconut shreds.
These are delicious and so easy, especially without the cream, which I don’t think is necessary anyway. Thank you
Awesome Margaret! Thanks for trying them out!
i didn’t notice what was recommended – sweetened or unsweetened coconut. Any difference?
Were eggs left out of the recipe? It doesn’t even hold together whatsoever when doubling oil and water…?
Is this cookie okay to make for people with Celiac disease?
