For KetoCafé from Nutricia-Danone, I developed a delicious recipe for lemon-flavored cookies.
The great thing about these cookies is that they can be made in different forms. Now that Christmas is approaching, you can have fun with this recipe by making different shapes such as Christmas trees, snowballs, stars, and much more 🙂
In this recipe, I opted for a lemon flavor, but it is also possible to experiment with other flavors like vanilla or cinnamon. So take a look at the recipe below and have fun in the kitchen. You’re in for a treat this winter!
Nutritional Value for 15 Cookies:
- Ratio: 2.7:1
- Calories: 1396
- Carbohydrates: 18.9 g
- Protein: 29.6 g
- Fat: 131.3 g
Ingredients (for 15 Cookies):
- 100 g almond flour
- 55 g butter
- 50 g KetoCal 4:1 vanilla powder
- 25 g Steviala
- 11 g freshly squeezed lemon juice
- A pinch of salt
- Preheat the (electric) oven to 160°C (fan setting).
- Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan.
- Mix the almond flour, KetoCal 4.1 vanilla powder, freshly squeezed lemon juice, Steviala, and a pinch of salt with the melted butter until a dough forms.
- Shape the dough into a ball and then flatten it on a work surface with your hands to create a disk about 0.5 cm thick.
- Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart-shaped cookies from the dough. If there is leftover dough, form it into a ball again, flatten it with your hands, and cut out more heart-shaped cookies until all the dough is used.
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the cookies on it. You can use a spatula to transfer them from the work surface to the parchment paper. It’s easiest to keep the dough within the cookie cutter when transferring.
- Place the cookies in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Allow them to cool before serving. They will become harder and crunchier once cooled.
This recipe uses lemon to add flavour to the cookies. You can also make cookies with other flavours, such as vanilla or cocoa. If you do, you’ll need to recalculate the nutritional values and the ratio.
Depending on the season, occasion, and your child’s preferences, you can use different shapes for the cookies. If the dough is too soft/sticky to shape, you can refrigerate it for a while to cool it down.
You can adjust the ratio by serving the cookies with, for example, red fruits (for a lower ratio) or whipped cream (for a higher ratio). Store the heart-shaped cookies in a cookie jar and use them within 7 days.
