Keto Almond Joy Cookies

Keto Almond Joy Cookies. As a kid, were you a fan of Almond Joy bars ? I mean with that chewy sweet coconut centre and the delicious chocolate coating…

Well, I sure was. Actually one of my favourite low-carb protein bars is the Almond Coconut Built Bar as I’ve always been a fan of anything almond and coconut.

For these babies, that’s where the idea came from.

I’m so happy with this recipe..

–Almond & Coconut Flour For this recipe, I use this brand of coconut flour and the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour. The brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe as I’ve noted in many of my past recipes because depending on how the flour has been processed, absorbency can vary .
