KETO CHOCOLATE AMARETTI COOKIES. This is my sugar-free take on the traditional Italian chocolate amaretti cookies. They have a wonderfully crispy exterior that is dusted with powdered sugar, and a chewy, moist inside. A family favourite that is free of gluten and dairy.
They taste great and are incredibly easy to create, requiring just a few basic ingredients, like everything else in Italian cuisine.
Christmas is only a few weeks away, so I decided to create a low-carb recipe for snowball cookies that tastes precisely like chocolate amaretti with December just around the horizon.
Snow Ball Sweets
Mexican wedding cookies are another name for traditional snowball sweets. They have an icing sugar coating that gives them the appearance of miniature snowballs. (Of course, we’re using low-carb sweeteners in powder form instead!)
They contain a lot of butter and are created using pecans or walnuts that have been finely diced. I should know because my Keto Cookies Cookbook includes a recipe for some seriously fantastic keto snowball cookies.
I was looking for something moist but a lot, much lighter this time. introduce amaretti
Amaretti are a clever concoction of almond flour, sugar, and egg whites that have been whisked. After that, you can use almond extract or a liqueur like Amaretto. Other flavors include pistachio, coffee, lemon, and orange.
I choose to create a chocolate variant, to cut a long story short. And wow, was it a big hit! Every mouthful of my keto amaretti cookies is sheer pleasure thanks to their crispy exterior and moist interior.
