- 5 tablespoons grass-fed butter, melted
- 2 pasture-raised eggs
- 2 full dropperfuls vanilla-flavored liquid stevia
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until it has the consistency of a thick paste.
- Shape the dough into balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Press down gently on the tops of the cookies with a fork or knife.
- Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on the baking sheet; otherwise, they will crumble.

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!
