This is a super tasty, fat burning, ketogenic recipe that uses great ingredients and is easy to make. If you have been looking for a healthy short bread cookie recipe than you have found your match! Try these today and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
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!
