Pecan Almond Shortbread Cookies, crumbly delight!
When I was a kid I used to love to dip cookies in my tea. My grandmother taught me that…
As a keto eater it’s not so easy to find cookies you can have….
These ones are amazingly delicious, and quite low in carbs! Just as good as the shortbread from my childhood!
Keto Treats and Insulin
Please be aware that a keto treat might still spike your insulin.
What will happen for sure is that a sweet tasting treat will not help your sugar addiction, if you are experiencing such a problem.
You can read more in my post about Treats and Insulin.
For this reason I recommend skipping the sweetener altogether if that is a concern of yours and try to get used to less sweet tasting foods. This will reset your taste buds, and help you get rid of the cravings!
