No-Bake Turmeric Keto Cookies




Yield 6 Cookies


*You can trade out the tahini for almond butter, cashew butter, or slightly melted coconut butter.


Step #1:  In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the coconut flakes and coconut oil and blend on high until the mixture takes on the consistency of coconut butter—creamy and smooth.

Step #2:  Add the tahini and continue blending until well combined.

Step #3:  Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add the turmeric, protein powder and stevia. Using a fork, mix it into a batter. (It is normal for the batter to be crumbly.)

Step #4:  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step #5:  Measure 2 tablespoons of the batter and form it into a ball by squeezing it in your hand. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining batter, making a total of 6 cookies.

Step #6:  Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill for 45 minutes. As they chill, they will solidify and take on a great texture.

Step #7:  Enjoy!

Additional Notes

Tahini is ground sesame seeds.  You can use whatever nut butter that you enjoy the most instead of the tahini for these turmeric keto cookies.  This would include almond butter, cashew butter or if you are following our autoimmune nutrition plan, than I would recommend doing coconut butter.

You can also choose your natural sweetener of choice.  I like the ketogenic sweeteners stevia or monk fruit because they do not elevate your blood sugar and are easy on the digestive tract.

If you but if you aren’t interested in being in ketosis than you could also use raw honey or organic maple syrup, which are healthy but also drive up blood sugar.

If you tolerate sugar alcohols like xylitol and erythritol well than you could also use these.  I do caution, however, that these often cause gas and bloating and can damage the microbiome.  Stevia and monk fruit are easy on the digestive system and do not drive up blood sugar, so they are the best!

Dr Jockers Comments

These turmeric keto cookies are a fantastic low-carb, ketogenic, anti-inflammatory and gut healing cookie that tastes great and is a fantastic meal replacement or snack!  These are very simple to make and I know the whole family will love the flavor!

Coconut oil and flakes are rich in medium chain fats that help burn fat for fuel and support a ketogenic lifestyle.  Coconut flakes are also rich in fiber to help support the microbiome and gut motility.

Turmeric is one of the greatest anti-inflammatory herbs on the planet and something I recommend my clients look to get into their diet on a regular basis.  Combining it in the bone broth protein makes a killer combo for inflammation and anti-aging.

Bone broth protein is rich in collagen which is the major structural component of our joints, hair, skin, nails and intestinal lining.  It also helps support the immune system and the bodies natural detoxification mechanisms.

If you are on the autoimmune nutrition plan, it is best to avoid the tahini at first and so you can make this recipe with coconut butter instead.  Try it out…I know you will LOVE it!!!

    1. Some cheaper turmeric brands have unlisted filler ingredients and can be high in heavy metals. As long as you source a high quality organic turmeric, risk of any detrimental effects should be pretty low!

  1. Do you have recipes that are made just from real food? The powdered bone broth is expensive and there is only 20 servings. We are on a fixed income and $45 four or more times a month is NOT in our plan. What do you have for the “rest of us” ?

  2. Hard to get bone broth protein powder over here in Germany. Any idea if I can replace the powder with real bone broth and if yes how ?

  3. Lauric acid, the predominant fat in coconut, disrupts the tight junctions in the small intestine and causes leaky gut. Thank you for providing alternatives!

  4. So many of your tasty recipes include stevia or some other sweetener. Although these sweeteners won’t bother our bodies, they DO train us to crave sweets. Why would we want to do that? I find that if I avoid all sweet things for a few weeks, I no longer crave them, and it helps my emotional state exponentially. (If I “cheat”, and have something sweet — even some fruits — I have to start all over again, and that first couple of weeks is always difficult.)
