Keto Sour Cream Cookies (Sugar Cookies)

In my opinion, when it comes to choosing the perfect dessert option for the holidays, keto cookies should be at the top of the list. This is why I am confident that these keto sour cream cookies will make a lovely addition to your low carb holiday cookie plater. These sour cream keto cookies are reminiscent of the old fashion cookies many of us grew up on. It’s the type of recipe that was commonly found in church community cookbooks.   If like me you grew up in the 1980s then you might remember McCall’s sour cream cookie recipe. That recipe produced a light, soft, sweet delicious option. But, of course, it was also oh so loaded with carbs.  Well, that’s the flavor profile I was after. Thankfully, this girl was able to produce for you just that. Consider these the keto version of that popular recipe. I had to do some major tweaking since Keto Baking is NOTHING like traditional baking but this girl is quite proud of this low carb version and I’m hoping you will also fall in love with it.  This sour cream cookie recipe uses almond flour, ensuring that it’s not only low in carbs but grain and gluten-free. If what you are…

Keto Lemonade Recipes KETO LEMONADE There isn’t anything more refreshing to me on a hot day than a nice cold glass of fresh Keto Lemonade.  It’s just as refreshing on a cold day too if you’re warm-blooded enough. Keto Lemonade is an excellent alternative to sugary drinks as the low carb sweetener allows you to satisfy that sweet tooth without the insulin spike of a high carb drink. All lemonade is not created equal, in order to balance the sour of lemon a lot of sugar gets added.  When you buy lemonade at the store you’re letting someone else decide how much sugar and how many carbs are in it. Making it at home is easier than you might think and allows you…
