Keto Cookie Recipe
Special Occasions Call for a Keto Cookie Recipe!
Happy Birthday to ME! 😛 For my birthday, I was able to celebrate it with friends and family with a special keto cookie recipe!
This past weekend was my 23rd birthday. I am super thankful for all my family and friends who wished me a happy birthday and made my day extra special.
My roommate, his sister, and her boyfriend even went down to the Bold Rock Cidery to run the Be BOLD 5k Trail race (what's better than running a race on your birthday?!).
We won a case of Bold Rock Cider! (I was first female -of course I shared the cider)

The Lemon Almond Keto Cookie Recipe that Everyone Can Enjoy!
Making the Lemon Almond Keto Cookie Recipe
Tips and Tricks for the Lemon Almond Keto Cookie Recipe!
- Make sure to line the pan with parchment paper. The first time we made this recipe, we greased the pan with coconut oil (one of the healthiest oils and personally my favorite to cook with). The cookie stuck to the pan and was difficult to remove. Parchment paper will eliminate this issue.
- Cocowhip is sold frozen and needs to be kept frozen. If not, it turns to liquid. Before spreading it on the cookie, let it sound out and thaw for approximately 5-10 minutes until it is soft but still thick. Place any extra cake back into the fridge so the CocoWhip does not turn to liquid.
- We enjoyed having blueberries on our cake. Blueberries pair well with lemon. You can add fresh or frozen fruit. If you choose to use frozen, make sure to let the fruit thaw out before placing them on the keto cookie cake. Feel free to add any other toppings of your choosing! (Strawberries, Lemon Zest, Sprinkles, Low Carb Candies, etc!)
