Keto Sugar Cookies Made With Cream Cheese

These keto sugar cookies made cream cheese are easy to make and taste fantastic. Since they are made with a mix of almond flour and pecan flour they are very low in net carbs. Though it is not too common practice, I love to use pecans in my recipes. This is because they contain fewer net carbs than almost any other and taste amazing.

The only issue is that pecan flour can be hard to come by. That said, it is relatively easy to make at home. All you will need is regular pecan pieces and a food processor or high-quality blender. To make simply put the pecans through the food processor until it turns into a nice pecan flour.

That said, if you process them too long it will turn into pecan butter. However, if that is too much trouble you can find pecan flour at some specialty stores as well as on Amazon.

In addition, these keto sugar cookies are also loaded with “you guessed it ” cream cheese. The cream cheese help to keep these low-carb cookies soft and moist.

Each cookie contains roughly 160.2 calories, 16 grams of fat, 9.85 total carbs, 1.45 net carbs, and 3.05 grams of protein.Net carbs are equated by subtracting fiber and erythritol from total carbs.
