Monday’s Breakfast – Peanut Butter Cookies, Apples and Dip

I asked Autumn this morning what was for breakfast and she said “Mom, I always have peanut butter cookies on Monday.”

So I got out the camera and started taking pictures!

I had a mom call me several weeks ago asking some questions about the diet.  She had seen a picture of Autumn eating peanut butter cookies on my FB page asked me for the recipe.  She had not started the diet yet and was just trying to go “low-carb with her son. When I started to write out the recipe for her, I realized that if you have never made a keto-recipe it would be hard to explain the size of how things look – thus was another reason to start the blog to show people what a keto meal/dessert looks like:

Here are the ingredients you need: (See “Recipes” tab for exact measurements) IMG_4164

Now, when you mix these up all you need is a small cup – yet you will end up with 16-18 “mini” cookies:

A tip when adding egg: Typically you only need a few grams of egg in a recipe. Mix an egg in a small food storage container and then pour just what you need into your recipe and store the rest in the fridge.

Mix the rest of the ingredients together and then place a “dime-size” amount of batter per cookie on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 7 minutes.  We have a convection oven so oven times may vary.

These cookies can be made as a “snack” but this recipe has “apples and peanut butter” added to it to make it more of a meal. While the cookies are baking, add together the peanut butter, butter, coconut oil and a bit of stevia and stir. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature so we put a little in a metal measuring cup, heat it up on the stove to melt and then measure it into the batter.

When we first started out in the diet we were at a 4:1 ratio.  And although at that ratio you don’t get a whole lot of apple, they are still tasty!  The picture here is a 2.5:1 ratio.  The key is to cut the apples thin so there are lots of slices to go with all the cookies 🙂

Here is what the cookies look like after baking:IMG_4169

And here is what it looks like all together – Autumn loves to dip the apples and the cookies in the sauce!

Of course I forgot to take a picture of her eating them this morning, but here is one from her birthday breakfast – Yum Yum!photo (2)
