These low carb cookies are a gold mine!
It took us a few times to get the recipe just right, but we’re glad we did because these keto blueberry lemon shortbread cookies are amazing! They are the perfect combination of sweet, light, crumbly and moist – what else could you ask for in a cookie? We chose to make these shortbread cookies in a basic vanilla flavor and then kicked it up a notch by adding fresh lemon juice that absolutely brought them to life.
We then added a pop of color and more flavor by making a quick blueberry glaze. We were floored when we tasted these blueberry lemon shortbread cookies and we can’t wait to use the recipe in different forms.
We’ve already got plans to repurpose them into some individual fruit cakes for a party next weekend! Recipe coming soon!
It’s all in the sweetener!
In this recipe, we used 2 kinds of Sukrin sweeteners – trusty granulated erythritol and powdered erythritol! Sukrin is a household name in Norway, where it’s the go-to brand of sweetener of many sugar-free products on store shelves.
We make a range of low-carb, zero calorie sweeteners, whole food flours, low-carb, sugar and gluten-free easy-to-bake bread mixes and the most delectable milk chocolates with no added sugar. – from Sukrinusa.com
Luckily, their quality products have found their way to the US with the help of Pernille, who was kind enough to send us a bunch of Sukrin’s sweeteners to try out! We’ve been experimenting and making different sweets for weeks now and have had some awesome results we just can’t wait to share.
Their granulated erythritol was perfect for the base cookie in this recipe, while the powdered erythritol, Sukrin Melis, was just what we needed to make the yummy blueberry glaze that tops off this recipe. Sukrin Melis is very handy to have when a recipe calls for powdered sugar or erythritol. Erythritol is known to be a bit finicky when dissolving, so having it in powdered forms saves time and energy!
We can’t wait to try out their other sweeteners! A whole new world of dessert possibilities has opened up!
If you love blueberries as much as we do, you’ve got to try this keto chia pudding from Keto Cooking Wins. Filled with blueberry flavor, this recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or simply as a snack!
