Gluten Free, Sugar Free Magic Cookies

Now some of you are probably thinking, "Yum! Magic Bars! " like those ooey gooey bites of deliciousness made with sweetened condensed milk. Just stop! Nothing sugar free is ooey gooey. It just isn't so get over it. Instead concentrate of a tasty bite that is not too bad for you. These little jewels come in at slightly under 2 net carbs each, plus they are a snap to make. I honestly don't know yet how they freeze, but I stuck mine in the freezer anyway, because if they are on my radar I will eat them.

Magic Cookies

1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons erythritol (I use Swerve)
4 egg yolks
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup sugar free chocolate bite (I use Lily's)
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Fill 24 mini muffin cups with paper liners. (Alternately put parchment on  a baking pan with sides) Preheat oven to 350
Mix the coconut oil and the butter, add the Swerve and stir well. Toss in the egg yolks and blend until they are smooth and creamy, then stir in the salt. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything together.
Fill the muffin cups to the top of the cup, or make mounds of dough on the lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. There will be a ton of melted oil in the bottom of the muffin tins or on the parchment. It is normal so don't worry about it.

 Let them cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a rack. Learn from me and do not peel the liners off the cookies until they are almost completely cool.

And the verdict? When TheHub asked me how they tased I told hime they were keto good. The translation of that is they are pretty good, bordering on  really tasty but not like the real thing.. He ate a couple and agreed they are not bad, then he fixed himself a hot fudge sundae, which he liked much better. Don't be dissuaded though. They were good enough that I ate 3 before I popped them in the freezer. I like them and depending on how they taste after freezing I will make them again. If they do not freeze well I probably won't make them because I just can't have this many around me. Before I know what is happening I will have eaten 6 of them.. If you are wanting something sweet but watching carbs or gluten, this recipe is  really good

Just added: They are much much better the second day!

  2. They look lovely.
    I have learned that I really need NOT to bake sweet or even sweetish treats. If they are here I eat them. I promise restraint and fail. I suspect even the freezer isn't enough to discourage my greedy self.

    1. The freezer is a good foil for me. I will only take one out then the rest are safe. Plus I tend to forget about them if they are out of sight.

    1. I do hope they stand up to freezing. I guess I will see. If not I will reduce the recipe by fourths and make just a few at a time.

  4. They sound really delicious. Does the chocolate shine? I tell myself I really don't like sweets, just chocolate. Mostly, it is true.

    1. The chocolate has a little sheen to it, but is not shiny. It is very dark chocolate with just a touch of sweetness.

    2. By "shine" I meant does it come through. I just want chocolate taste.

  6. I'm glad you found something you like well enough to make again. I've been craving chocolate chip cookies, but, I'm trying not to make any, because I will eat them all in just a couple of days!

    1. I understand. That is why I have to use my freezer. It becomes my system of checks and balances.

  7. You spoil your husband. I'm pretty sure even your "not bad" is pretty damn good!

    1. Honestly they were better the second day. The first day not bad was what both of us thought, b ut I did not chase the not bad bite with a hot fudge sundae like he did.

  8. Do they satisfy that sweet need? Then that is nice addition to a sweet treat option. I tend to over eat when things don't hit my craving as I keep trying.

  9. Thank you for this recipe Anne. I have one other cookie recipe that I really enjoy but I only make them at Christmas. I give myself permission to have treats during the holidays (I have no self control), but they still have to be keto. This one looks like a true winner. There is no reason I can see why these wouldn't freeze very well. I bet they even taste fabulous while still frozen. Ha,ha.
